Flour2 Tbs. butter or margarine(whisk together in a sauce pan  until it starts to thicken and brown then add...)2 Cups of vegetable broth/ or milk1 tsp. Beef style seasoning or chicken or soy sauce. Wisk together until thick and set aside to coolMake Stuffing or dressing.  Any recipe that you like is fine!!!!4 cups of wheat and white cubed dried bread1 large onion3 stalks of celery diced3 carrots diced ½ fresh parsley chopped2 tsp. Rubbed sage1-2 Cups of vegetable brothOil to saute vegetables.Add a few tablespoons of oil to a pan and saute onion celery and carrots until soft.  Add sage and fresh parsley. Add saute mixture to cubed bread, add vegetable broth.  Mix together and set aside.1-2 Packages of puff pastry sheets (depends on how much decorating you want to do and or how big a “turkey” you are making.  1 is usually fine but sometimes I like to have two. )Thaw the puff pastry.  Grease a baking platter (oven safe serving platter) or a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  (I prefer a sheet with no sides so I can slide the entire turkey onto a platter once it is baked.  If you don’t have a cookie sheet with no sides just turn your cookie sheet upside down.) Cut the “dinner roast” apart into irregular shapes and sizes.  Then dip each piece in the gravy and place in an oval on the parchment paper or platter.  Keep mounding and making a large oval until every piece is there.  Then mound on top of that the stuffing.  Then top with puff pastry decorating the edges and the top with design of your choice.  (This is a fun job for kids!) Brush with milk or egg wash. Bake at 350 for 45minutes. Cover with tin foil if it starts to get too brown. Serve warm.  Enjoy! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.Send us an email: joy@carolinasda.org
