Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy

Everything's better with gravy – especially this classic open-faced sandwich. Bonus? The turkey and pan sauce is equally tasty over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

Cut each turkey breast in half; sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper. In large cast-iron or heavy skillet, heat half of the oil over high heat; brown turkey all over, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Add remaining oil to skillet; fry onion, mushrooms, thyme, rosemary and remaining salt and pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until golden.

Stir in flour; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in stock and 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, a little at a time; bring to boil.

Return turkey to skillet. Stir in parsley and lemon juice; cover and simmer over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until thickened and juices run clear when turkey is pierced.

Slice turkey and arrange on each slice of bread; pour gravy over top.
