Creamy Turkey Stew In a Bread Bowl

Turkey dinner is a wonderful thing. It usually produces a massive feast with days worth of leftovers. That being said, the same old thing day after day gets a little old. That’s why I’m thrilled to share this recipe for Creamy Turkey Stew In a Bread Bowl. It’s delicious and a fabulous way to mix things up and no longer get the taste and feeling of “leftovers”. 

Creamy Turkey Stew In a Bread Bowl


  • 1 lb turkey, cut into cubes (I know I will have much less)
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 onions, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 2 potatoes, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 2 cups dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup 18% cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 large kaiser buns

Dust turkey with flour. In a large heavy bottom pot, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add turkey and saute on all sides until lightly browned. Remove turkey and set aside. Add onions, celery, carrots, potatoes, garlic and rosemary. Saute for  10 minutes or until onions become transparent. Return turkey to the pot and add white wine and chicken stock. Cover and reduce to simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in cream and season to taste.

Slice the top third of the kaiser bun off. Hollow the bottom of the bun out, leaving 1/4 inch of bread and crust to form a “bowl”. Fill each bun with stew, place lid on top and serve hot.
