My hubby loves turkey with stuffing for lunch. He use to take T.V. dinners to work but he got tired of them. And let’s face it, those things are not too terribly healthy.
While I’m doing my freezer cooking, I whip up my Weekend Stuffing, turkey cutlets, mashed potatoes and gravy. I make up several home-made T.V. dinners each time.
Unfortunately, I failed to stock up on chicken broth before my last freezer frenzy. So I improvised and this was the result. My hubby and I were both really pleased with the result. You can easily adjust the seasonings to your own tastes.
FREEZER INSTRUCTIONS: Allow gravy to completely cool. Label quart sized baggie. Place baggie in a large cup. Fold the top of the baggie over the top of the cup. Pour the cooled gravy into the baggie. Zip the baggie, removing as much air as possible. Freeze in a flat position.
