I bought 2 of these frozen turkey breast things (1kg/2.2lbs) at a cheap post Christmas clearance price.

I'm thinking of making a batch of frozen meals in containers that I can eat during the week with a few slices of Turkey and some vegetables and gravy.

I've done this before and they've frozen quite well but the gravy always turns into watery shit. What magic do they use in those sodium loaded frozen meals you buy at the supermarket to stop the gravy absorbing any other moisture inside the package and turning into runny brown piss?

I have only tried using instant gravy before and making it fat far thicker than what the package suggested so it was almost like a paste, but it still didn't really freeze and reheat that well.

Open to suggestions including making my own thick gravy from scratch if anyone has tips

are you freezing the gravy along with the turkey and vegetables? or are you freezing it separately?

I've been looking for a turkey load for a month now. I still can't find any. I really want one because it just seams so easy to use and make a decent one person meal with a slice or two, some gravy, potatoes and dressing

I'm freezing an entire meal in 1 tupperware style container. So I'm putting in slices of Turkey, vegetables, mashed potato and gravy just on top of the meat

That's why I waited till after Christmas and bought 2 of them pham

I just can't make the gravy work in the freezer

They are good value low fat protein that seem to only be served annually, fuck knows why
>>
make turkey stock, freeze it in ice cube trays
use that and some roux to make gravy to order
>>

The problem isn't the gravy, it's the turkey. Freezing the meat causes drip loss. The moisture coming out of the meat waters down the gravy.

Solve the problem by freezing the gravy seperate from the meat. Just put it in a little cup inside the tupperware you're keeping the rest of the meal in.

kill yourself.
