We’ve all sat and stared at our cupboards and thought – how can I make dinner out of any of this, right? Same problem occurred yesterday in my house.
- turkey burgers (frozen)
- boxed macaroni and cheese
- yellow or white onion
- fresh chives
- half a green pepper
There were a few other things but this stuff seemed to have potential. So here you go – Turkaroni. Not sure how this would turn out, I gave it a shot, and am I ever glad I did. It was completely delicious and turned into the husband’s top five dishes that I’ve made for him. Guess I don’t have to try so hard in the future.
Here’s the recipe.
- 1 box of macaroni and cheese
- 2 frozen turkey burgers
- 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh chives chopped (could be substituted with dried – use less if dried)
- 1/3 cup chopped onions
- dash of italian seasonings (to taste)
- dash of garlic salt (to taste)
Directions: in pan, chop up and brown turkey burgers into traditional ground turkey form. Add onions into pan and mix. Once turkey is browned, add bell peppers, garlic salt and Italian seasoning. Simultaneously, cook box of macaroni and cheese per directions on box. Add turkey mixture to macaroni and cheese and stir. Cook on low for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Makes 2 adult servings.
I never promised anything fancy – or healthy – but it tastes damn good. Enjoy!
