Cut crusts off bread. Using rolling pin, roll each slice to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Fit each into lightly greased 6 oz (175 mL) custard cup. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until golden brown, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, carrot, celery, salt, thyme and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes.

Add flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk in stock, milk and vinegar; cook, whisking often, until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Add turkey and peas; cook until bubbly and peas are tender, about 3 minutes. Ladle into toast cups.
