Grandma Gallo's Creamed Turkey Crepes

This recipe is one Grandma Gallo used to make with chicken, but it's a wonderful way to use up leftover turkey around the holidays.


12-14 cooked 6-inch crepes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup chicken stock, boiling
2 cups diced cooked turkey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped chives
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup light cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Have crepes ready. Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour. Cook, stirring for 1 minute. Gradually add stock. Bring to boil. Cook, stirring over low heat 1-2 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Add turkey, salt, pepper, parsley and chives. Remove from heat. Beat egg yolks and light cream in a mixing bowl. Add a little of the hot sauce and mix well. Turn egg mixture into remaining hot sauce in pan. Stir together. Put a portion of the mixture on the center of each crepe. Roll up crepes. Place crepes in a buttered over-to-table baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 10-15 minutes. Serve at once. Serves 6.

Wine Perfect for Thanksgiving

According to Gina, "A traditional Thanksgiving meal in my family wouldn't seem complete without a bottle of Pinot Noir. This one's a particular favorite. The flavors of cassis and blackberry perfectly complement turkey and the dishes that go with it."
