This was one of those recipes I had to wrestle with before it gave me the flavor I hoped for. Thanks to previous reviews, I knew the dish would need some "boosting" so I sauteed a diced carrot, 2 diced celery ribs, 1 small diced onion, and one red pepper for about 10 minutes, then added 8 oz. sliced mushrooms. Then I sprinkled about 3 tblsp. of flour over the mix and poured in a can of low-fat evaporated milk (stirring quickly to avoid lumps). After tasting what I had (which was disappointingly bland), I added about 1 c. leftover mashed potatoes and 1/2 c. low-fat sour cream. Then I added about 2 oz. of dry sherry, a tsp. of dried thyme, and some salt and pepper. Better, but not there yet.
I had an appointment, so I added about 1 c. of turkey, turned off the burner and left the dish in the pan on the stove (covered) for about an hour, hoping for a miracle. Miracle didn't happen, although letting it sit really did help. After reheating it, I added 1 tsp. of chicken bouillon... and that finally brought it up to a dish I feel okay about. It seems unlikely I'll be making this again, but it was fun trying.
