My friend shared this recipe with me-it is super delicious and is a make ahead and freezer friendly meal! It has all the flavors of Thanksgiving Turkey dinners. I think she originally got the recipe from Rachel Ray, and then slightly adapted it, and then I adapted it a little more!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion chopped
3 celery stalks (with leaves) chopped
2 cups chicken broth/stock
1 box of chicken or turkey flavored stuffing
1-2 lbs of ground turkey
1 egg per each pound of turkey
Salt and pepper
Heat butter and oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the onion and celery. Season with salt and pepper and cook until tender about 10 minutes. Add the stuffing to the skillet and then add the chicken broth. Let the stuffing mixture cool in a bowl. ONce cool, add the turkey and egg and mix together. You can form into loaves or, press into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 400 degrees: 30 minutes for 9×13 pan and 45-1 hour for a large loaf. Serve with store-bought turkey gravy.
I love that this recipe can be cooked in 30 minutes! That is just about all the time we have on a weeknight to heat things up. We eat this with mashed potatoes and broccoli or green beans.
What are some of your favorite weeknight meals?
