Creamed Turkey (or Memories from Childhood)

2 c. milk
2/3 c. turkey or chicken stock
4 T. butter or Smart Balance 50/50
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. white pepper (or black)
4 T. flour
4 c. cooked, diced leftover turkey (include dark adds good flavor)
1 c. frozen peas, thawed
toasted bread, cut and halved into triangles

In a 3 qt. pot or large no-stick skillet, heat the milk, butter, and stock over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper, whisking constantly, eliminating all lumps. As it comes to a boil, it will thicken...mix in turkey and peas. If it gets too thick, stir in a little more milk. Serve over toast triangles or bisquits. Deeelish!

We must have grown up in the same house! I was wanting to make this for my family and could only find recipes with mushrooms, no peas. This took me right back to my childhood! Just like mom used to make! Thanks for posting it.
