If you are ready to make this recipe, let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need

Ingredients

  • 7-8 slices of oven-roasted turkey – the deli will happily slice thick slices for you to make this meal. I asked them to use blade number 5
  • 1 (6 oz.) box of stuffing – I used a box of cornbread stuffing, but you could also make your own favorite homemade stuffing
  • unsalted butter – this is used to make a roux for your gravy
  • all-purpose flour – this is combined with melted butter as a base for the gravy
  • water – you’ll add this to the butter and flour and whisk it over medium heat while making the gravy
  • chicken bouillon cubes – this is added for flavor
  • chicken rotisserie seasoning – a little extra seasoning for the gravy

How do you make Turkey and Stuffing Roll-Ups?

  • make the stuffing – using the instructions on the box or make your own favorite recipe
  • set out a slice of turkey in an 8×10-inch baking pan
  • fill it with stuffing and roll it up
  • place it seam side down or secure it with a wooden toothpick
  • continue with all of your turkey slices
  • bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes
  • while that is baking, make the gravy
  • make a roux with melted butter and flour
  • add water and whisk
  • add the bouillon and seasoning
  • continue to whisk until it is the thickness and texture that you want
  • if needed: strain any lumps out of gravy that might not have thinned out with whisking
