My family loves Turkey and Dressing and although I always make it for holidays and a few special Sunday dinners throughout the year, there are times that we crave the flavors of Thanksgiving on a busy weeknight, but I don’t feel like whipping up a large meal
That’s where these Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups save the day! Now we can easily and quickly enjoy the flavors of Thanksgiving anytime of the year. A few years ago, a coworker brought a casserole dish full of these to our annual Thanksgiving potluck luncheon at the school that I taught at. They were so tasty and although I didn’t get her recipe, I knew it probably wouldn’t be hard to recreate based on what I could see and taste.
Within the month we had Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups on the table. When you have to fight your teenage son to keep him from eating half of the pan, then you know you’ve got a winning dish. I have to send a special thanks to Monica for introducing me to this dish at our luncheon.
The Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups that I make only consist of three main ingredients, thick slices of deli style turkey (I request a 2 & 1/2 or 3 for the thickness), cooked Stove Top Stuffing, and turkey gravy. Some recipes call for a mixture of turkey gravy and a can of cream of chicken soup. I don’t make my Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups with the cream of chicken soup added, but I know that it would be a delicious addition, so if you are making a double batch of these it’s worth trying the mixture of gravy and cream of chicken soup.
Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups are so versatile and can easily be adapted to your favorite Stove Top Stuffing flavor and gravy flavor. I like to use Cornbread Stuffing and Turkey Gravy, but Chicken flavored or Brown Gravy would be great too. I buy the Oven Roasted turkey from my deli, and I ask for it to be sliced on a 2 & 1/2 setting, but any flavor that your family likes will be fine. Make it your own.

Spray a casserole dish that will hold 8 turkey rolls. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the stuffing mix according to the directions on the box. Warm the gravy.
I mentally calculate the stuffing mix out into 8 portions. Lay a piece of turkey on a plate with the skinny side towards you. Place a few large spoonfuls of the stuffing in a line across the edge closest to you (1/4 – 1/3 cup) and then roll up the turkey roll and set it in the casserole dish.
Continue filling and rolling the turkey until all 8 rolls are complete. Pour the gravy over the top of the Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy with a side of green beans and cranberry sauce if desired or if you’re like us, lima beans since they’re my son’s favorite.
This is an easy recipe to double. My son can eat 3 of these by himself, but he’s a hungry teenager. I only eat 1 or 2 depending on the other items I’m serving.
