Creamed Turkey/Tuna/Chicken-a-la-king/Biscuits 'n Gravy Gravy

Check it out- dinner or breakfast in one recipe! This one's a doozy- So many possibilities from one recipe! This is one of those that I never think of off the top of my head, but never regret when I remember to make it- delish!

Creamed Turkey

1/3 C butter

1/2 C flour

3 1/2 C milk, divided

1/2 C celery, chopped

1 tbsp minced dry onion

2 chicken bullion cubes

1/2 C water

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 C cooked turkey, cubed

1 C frozen green peas

Melt butter in large pan. Remove from heat, stir in flour until smooth. Stir in 2 C milk. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until sauce thickens. Stir in remaining milk until sauce is of desired consistency. Heat celery, onions, water and bullion in microwave for 3 minutes on high. Add to sauce with all remaining ingredients, simmer until heated through. Serve over toast cups {pinch the corners to fit bread into a cupcake tin then broil until lightly toasted.}

Creamed Tuna:

Make as above, substituting 1 can tuna for turkey and omitting bullion.

Chicken a-la-king(my personal favorite):

Make as above substituting chicken for turkey, reducing milk to 3 cups and adding 1 can cream of mushroom soup with remaining ingredients.

Biscuits and Gravy Gravy:

Prepare as above, omitting celery, bullion, and peas. Reduce milk to 3 cups and add 1 can cream of mushroom soup. Add cooked link or ground sausage. I just make biscuits following the directions on a Bisquick box.
