Can I Freeze Turkey Roll-Ups with Stuffing?

Can I Add the Gravy Before Baking the Roll-Ups?
Yes! If you want to add the gravy before baking, then cover the dish with foil so the gravy does not dry out. If preferred – You can pull the foil off of the dish for the last 5 minutes to get some crisp edges on the turkey and stuffing
What Kind of Gravy Can I Use for Turkey Roll-Ups?
It’s never been easier to make gravy without drippings. Today, you can buy turkey gravy mixes in a packet, turkey gravy in a can, or turkey gravy in jars.
You can also easily make your own chicken-flavored gravy with a roux of butter and flour, water, chicken bouillon, and other seasonings
What Sides Can I Serve with Turkey Roll-Ups?
- green bean casseroles
- mashed potatoes
- cranberry sauce
- baked carrots
Tips and Tricks:
- after you roll the turkey over the stuffing, you can place them seam side down or secure them with a toothpick
- if you are using toothpicks to fasten your turkey roll-ups together, then soak the toothpicks for about 10 minutes in water before
- you can use homemade stuffing or used boxed stuffing as I did
- this recipe would make a great addition to an open-faced turkey sandwich – all you need to add is the bread and mashed potatoes
- ask the deli to slice your oven-roasted turkey with numbers 4 0r 5
- substitute chicken broth for water and chicken bullion cubes
If you are ready to make this recipe, let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need
- 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
