This is a very frugal meal, using up what you have in the freezer; ground turkey, frozen veggies, and the other things you happen to have in the cupboard. Great meal on a dark, dreary, cold and rainy day. Enjoy!
Total Time: 30 minutes prep Time 2 hours simmer time
Yield: Many, this makes about a 6 quart pot full
*Seasonings: Start with an 1/8 tsp. each first: seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, basil, thyme, rosemary, adobe seasoning, Italian seasoning and sage. I thought sage would be tasty because I was using turkey. Also add 2 tsp. of sugar, as this enhances all your flavors. When you let this simmer, do a taste test, and then you can adjust the seasonings to your taste.

I bought some Jennie-O frozen turkey patties but unfortunately we don't care for the taste of using them as burgers. Is there anything else I could make with them, by grinding them up in casseroles or something of the sort? Thanks!
I made up this super easy turkey chili- cook the turkey, then add a can of Petite diced tomatoes and jalapenos (with the juice), a can each of black beans and dark red kidney beans (washed and drained), and a packet of chili seasoning. If you want to get fancy, you can add a diced onion and some fresh jalapenos and monterey jack cheese.
You could break them up and mix them with hamburger to make meatloaf. I bought some veggie burgers once that my family didn't like and I used them in place of the chicken in chicken parmesan. I cooked them in the oven until brown, then covered with spagetti sauce, and put mozzerella on top. Baked until hot and the cheese was melted.
I have never used Jennie-O Frozen Turkey Patties but I have once purchased Jennie-O-Frozen Boneless Turkey Breast. It was absolutely disgusting & had a real vile taste. Never again will I buy anything put out by Jennie-O.
I buy them especially to make "Swiss Steak" and my husband (who usually hates turkey patties) thinks he's getting an artery closing treat, LOL!
Ground up, you could use them in taco's, to replace the burger meat. Good Luck
I use this easy recipe for chicken breasts, but it would probably do well for the turkey breast patties as well. Pour italian salad dressing in a bowl and put bread crumbs in another. Dip the thawed turkey breast in the dressing, then in the bread crumbs.
This page contains turkey meatloaf recipes. Turkey has a lot less fat than ground beef and is fantastic substitute when making meatloaf.
In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Press into a 9x5 inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray (or make into patties and grill).
This is a very quick meal to make, perfect if you work during the day. I omitted the cheese and added asparagus, so I made this a one-pan meal. Feel free to add other vegetables and spices to your liking.
