Thanksgiving Crepe Filling Recipe: Turkey Crepes Smothered in Tarragon Sauce

It's just a few more days until Thanksgiving and many of us are thinking of creative ways to use turkey leftovers.

Last year, my family used the leftovers we had and made an array of goodies such as: Turkey soup, turkey sandwiches, turkey chili, and turkey stir fry. And even though several of these dishes were scrumptious,we want to make something simpler yet gourmet this year.

All Recipes website has this delicious  turkey crepes smothered in tarragon sauce!
Maybe we can extend Thanksgiving to another week?


   4 tbs butter
         2 tbs finely chopped onion
        4 tbs all-purpose flour
        1 cup milk
        3/4 cup chicken broth
        1/4 cup dry white wine
          1/4 tsp chopped dried tarragon
           2 egg yolks
          2 cups diced cooked turkey
          salt to taste
          1/4 cup milk


              Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

     Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in flour until blended. Slowly whisk in 1 cup milk, whisking constantly until smooth. Mix in broth, wine, and tarragon; stir over medium-low heat until thickened (about 4 minutes).

           In a small bowl, gradually stir 3 tablespoons of the hot milk and broth sauce into the egg yolks; then pour egg mixture into sauce, whisking briskly. Cook 1 minute more, then remove from heat.

           In a medium bowl, mix together half of the sauce with the chicken. Season with salt to taste.

     Fill each crepe with 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture. Roll crepes, and place seam-side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Thin the remaining sauce with 1/4 cup milk, and pour over crepes.

Bake in a preheated oven 20 minutes, or until sauce begins to bubble.
