I had a completely different meal slotted for tonight's dinner. However, when I went to go pull the protein item for the other dish from my freezer, I noticed that I had ground turkey that was on the brink of not being usable. Apparently, there was a mishap with the vacuum seal bag, because this turkey has succumbed to some freezer burn and the bag itself had a lot of air in it. Ugh. All of my other meat stores seemed to be okay, so I am hoping that this is just an isolated incident. Anyway, I need to use this turkey.
This dish is one of our favorites...certainly our favorite ground turkey recipe. I usually always have all the ingredients on hand, so it is pretty fast and cheap to put together. Since there are no surprises, I think I will just post the link to my original recipe. I think we will serve either some steamed green beans or broccoli with this dish...maybe, glazed carrots if I feel like putting forth the effort.

Hopefully, the turkey will hold up, and this meal will be just as good as it normally is...wish me luck!!!
