This recipe is the most requested recipe in our household. It is the result of many attempts to get the right combination of seasonings for turkey instead of hamburger meatballs that still have that Swedish meatball taste. We much prefer the taste to the original hamburger recipe.
With DH being a diabetic, I am always looking for ways to add veggies into the diet. I found a recipe on the web and did some adjusting to suit our taste. The recipe calls for ground turkey; however, extra-lean ground beef also works well. Top with Creole Sauce recipe #149159 for a fabulous main course! These can be frozen, defrosted in the refrigerator and warmed as needed making this a great recipe for small families or when preparing a meal for one.
After trying another recipe for this from here on Zaar and finding it very bland I re-did it and this is the result. Got inspiration from Shaye and Taste of Home magazine. This is a good, low carb, low fat meal with a ton of flavor. Very pretty when sliced too.
Being so close to Canadian Thanksgiving, I thought this recipe might be handy. It is traditional in our family and served quite thick to pour over mashed potatoes. Left over gravy can be used up in a turkey casserole. We usually make a turkey shepherd's pie which can be frozen and add the mashed potatoes when defrosted and cooked.
Mmmm. moist and delicious stuffing. Of all the recipes I have tried, this is the only one which tastes like it came right out of the bird.
As our family are big stuffing eaters, I always make this recipe then mix it with the stuffing from the bird for serving.
I put this together for a light meal when I noticed that we had too big a collection of half-bags of frozen vegetables and little containers of leftover cooked veggies. The kind and quantity of the vegetables can vary according to what you have -- you just need to end up with between 2 and 3 lbs. Some people prefer a more generous amount of thickened sauce on their stir-fry dishes. With a diabetic in the house, I skip that part but I've included the directions if you want it.
Next time you are making turkey meatloaf try kicking it up a notch! While this won't be featured on a Brennan's menu anytime soon it is delicious. The original recipe was from Bon Appetit but I've modified it over time. If you are leary of using only turkey, consider a mix of 1 part beef to 2 parts turkey.
I got this out of a Fat-Free cookbook, Fat Free Living, along time ago, and I still make them every now and then. This is a good appetizer recipe. These are like a sweet and sour meatball. Very tasty, and no one will know they are lowfat if you don't tell them. Shhhhhh!
I created this one night when I had some turkey smoked sausage to use for dinner and wanted to do something creamy and comforting. I think it's important to use the turkey sausage as it is so much less grease. The regular can get very oily, so if you plan on using that, pre-cook it in a pan and drain on paper towels before you add to the sauce.
My kids don't like meatloaf but they love this! It is wonderfully moist and flavorful. This is from the Stonyfield Farm web site. When I am short on time, I skip the saute the onion step and just mix it all together - tastes delicious!
Local grocers often put turkey legs/wings on special, very inexpensive, I buy lots and roast and freeze. Delicious turkey pot roasted dinner!! from The High Fiber Cookbook for diabetics, by Mabel Cavaiani, R.D.
I used pork for this recipe but you could also use chicken or turkey. It was a quick and easy recipe I found in the Canadian Living Magazine. The important thing is the kids loved it, and inexpensive to make. I used fresh mushrooms as I prefer them over canned. I served it with a side dish of the colored bow tie pasta and peas. I also bought prepared pork schnitzel from the butcher which saves a few steps.
