Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy

This open-faced Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy is a quick and easy diner-inspired comfort food meal!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons light butter, (I use LandO’Lakes light butter with canola oil in the tub)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 ½ cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • ¾ teaspoon Better Than Bouillon Chicken or Turkey base
  • ½ teaspoon Gravy Master seasoning & browning sauce, or Kitchen Bouquet
  • 1 lb sliced deli turkey breast, (I used Wegmans deli 98% fat free turkey breast)
  • 4 slices soft wheat bread, (I used Wegmans Soft 100% Whole Wheat Bread)

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When the butter is melted, whisk in the flour a little at a time. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the broth a little bit at a time, whisking it into the flour mixture until smooth and well combined. Add the bouillon paste and Gravy Master. Whisk regularly until the gravy comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • While the gravy is thickening, separate the deli turkey slices onto a plate and microwave them on high for 30-60 seconds until warm.
  • To build each sandwich, place a slice of bread on a plate and top with 4 ounces of warm sliced turkey. Pour 1/3 cup of warm gravy over the top and serve.
