Turkey a la King is something I had never tried until I moved in with Jon. While wading through Thanksgiving leftovers one year, Jon suggested I make Turkey a la King. His mother used to make it with turkey leftovers. And he really didn't want to look at another turkey sandwich or turkey enchilada.
Ok then! Turkey a la King it is! (or was... I made this right after Christmas)
Turkey a la King
1 1/2 - 2 C cooked turkey, diced or shredded
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1/2 small shallot, diced
1/2 C peas
small jar pimento, diced
Other leftover veggies?
3 TBLS butter
3 TBLS flour
1 1/2 C turkey stock
1/4 C dry white wine
1/4 C heavy cream
1 tsp poultry seasoning
salt & pepper
Cut Puff Pastry into squares and cook according to directions on box.
Saute mushrooms and shallots in butter until golden.
Sprinkle in flour and cook until flour is starting to brown.
Whisk in turkey stock, wine and cream. Cook a few minutes until mixture starts to thicken.
Add turkey, poultry seasoning, peas, pimento and whatever other leftover veggies you might want to throw in.
Cook until heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over puff pastry and top with more puff pastry.
Bake puff pastry according to directions.
Grab your leftovers.
Turkey and fresh spinach were the only leftovers I was working with this time.

You don't need to wait for the holidays to make this. It's also another fast easy meal you can make with a rotisserie chicken!
This comes together wicked fast and it's so easy and tasty!
It's perfect for a satisfying dinner on a busy week night.
Hmmm... typing this up made me want to make it again!
