- 1/2 package of Stove Top Stuffing
- 1/4 cup dehydrated ground turkey
- 1 tbsp dehydrated carrot
- 1 tbsp dehydrated onion

Dry gravy packet (make sure to get one that only needs water!)
1. Cook ground turkey until golden brown. (*Avoid using oils – add water to the pan as needed instead).
2. Lightly rinse and drain turkey to rid of excess fats and oils. (They are dehydrated food spoiling culprits!)
3. Dehydrate turkey at 160° for approx 7 hours
4. Slice carrots, onions, celery and mushrooms. Blanch carrots for 2 minutes.
5. Dehydrate vegetables at 135° for approx 6-10 hours (time varies on vegetable type)

7. Add 1 1/2 cups boiling hot water. Let sit for approx 12 minutes
8. If adding gravy, cook while food is sitting. Pour on top when done.
