Creamed Turkey on Bread

dToday I forgot to take meat out of the freezer to thaw for dinner. Ordering delivery was out of the question, hubby doesn't get paid till tomorrow, but I did find a couple packages of precooked turkey I froze just for such an occasion.
My first thought was Turkey pot pie. Then I realized that it would take too long to thaw the meat and would have made dinner really late. So I decided it was time to get creative. I put the turkey in a cast iron skillet and thawed it on the stove, added some cream of mushroom soup, milk, peas, and spices and served it over bread. It took a lot less time to do that then it would have to mix everything up and wait for a crust to cook on a pot pie. The kids liked it so much, they went back for seconds.
Here is the recipe.

2c. Cooked turkey
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can milk (use the empty cream of mushroom soup to measure it)
1c. frozen peas (approx. just add till it looks right to you)
salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder or dehydrated onions. Just eye ball the spices, or keep tasting till it tastes good to you. (Taste testing is the fun part. lol)

Mix it all together in the pan and heat till hot. Serve over a slice of bread. You can substitute the cream of mushroom soup for any creamed soup you like. You can also substitute any of the spices to suit your tastes. Not only is this recipe fast and delicious, it also is easy to clean up since you mix and heat everything in one pan.
