Healthy Turkey Loaf

5 Apr

Growing up did you ever cringe when your mom said it was meatloaf night?  I know I did. Somewhere between here and there I have grown to appreciate a good meatloaf.

Tonight I had a package of turkey burger in the fridge that needed to be used. Hummmmmm, what to make…  Turkey Loaf! Quickest dish I have ever made! Start with preheating the oven to 350 and pour yourself a glass of wine. 😉

Combine in a bowl – I used my hands to work it all together.

Bake for an hour… poke it with a fork every so often to check on it!

My side dish was a nice fresh garden salad with artichoke hearts, onions, banana peppers, and croutons…

Let me know what you think!

Turkey Leftovers

9 Jan

This past week I pulled the leftover turkey breast from Thanksgiving out the freezer to make some Noodle Soup. This was my perfect opportunity to wow the husband with some homemade soup since this was the first time that I have ever seen him get sick. What I thought would be just turkey soup turned into a whole week of turkey dinners. (We cooked our first turkey this year for his family. He bought a 19 pounder for 5 people.)

Ingredients:

  • 5 stalks of celery
  • 4 carrots
  • Handful of fresh parsley – chopped
  • 4 chopped green onions
  • 24 oz of generic store brand egg yoke noodles
  • 2 boxes of chicken stock
  • Few handfuls of chopped/slightly shredded Turkey breast
  • I poured the stock into a large pot with the carrots, parsley, and celery. After a light boil I threw in the turkey breast. After only a few minutes I added 1-bag noodles. This may have been to many seeing the bag was 24oz not 16, but it was still delicious! After 10 minutes of boiling I served. The Hubby was in heaven with my first and very easy turkey noodle soup!

    I still had a considerable amount of turkey left. Two nights later I called my mother for her yummy Turkey Ala King recipe.

    Ingredients: I eyeballed all the ingredients for it is not hard to mess up or make.

    Ingredients:

  • Milk
  • Wondra flour
  • Frozed green peas
  • Chopped red peppers
  • Salt and pepper
  • bread to toast
  • I used a large saucepan and heated up some milk, again just poured it in un measured. Let it heat, not boil. I then added the Wondra flour until the liquid was more consistent. In went the peas and red peppers. Stir away and then I dropped in a few handfuls of shredded turkey breast. I poured a few spoonfuls over the toast and served. Again the husband was amazed by my cooking ability =)

    But, I still had Turkey breast left! So I shredded it up finely added some light mayo chopped up some green onions and was able to eat for lunch the next day.

    That week, I was very proud of my cooking! They were very simple recipes but very good! Do you have any suggestions that would have made these simple recipes even better?
