One of Oprah's favorite low-fat recipes. Rosie Daley, Oprah's private cook uses ground turkey breast and a bit more flavor, oriental-style Panko breadcrumbs found in specialty food stores. The recipe also works well with regular breadcrumbs. Look for Oprah's Classic Potatoes here in Zaar; it goes well with this recipe.

It turned out great. Great flavor and texture. The recipe calls for "light soy sauce" but does not include it in the instructions, so I left it out and it tasted great.

This recipe turned out very well. Used Marsala wine instead of red. Kept it uncovered for the first 20 minutes in the oven before putting foil on it.

It was pretty good. I made it without the gravy because I didn't want the added calories/fat from it. My boyfriend really liked it too.
