If you are a busy mom like me, making dinner at the end of the day can feel like a dreadful task. You haven't even thawed the meat out or prepped any veggies. No worries! I invented this delicious casserole recipe that uses the left overs in your refrigerator! This will have you and your family eating a healthy, nutritious dinner in no time and give you some extra minutes for self care. Enjoy!
4 cups of leftover broccoli (you can use squash, green beans, or whatever veggie you like)
2 cups of leftover ground turkey (you can use ground chicken, ground beef, a meat substitute, or mixture of proteins)
2 ounces of cream cheese
½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese (You can use more, but don’t get too carried away)
1 ½ cup of leftover potato, quinoa or brown rice *if you are not on a low carb or keto diet*
Add leftover broccoli, ground turkey and cream cheese to a medium skillet
Put skillet on stove top over medium heat and stir until cream cheese melts (This step can be done in a microwave in a microwave safe bowl)
Add ingredients to an oven-safe pan
Sprinkle shredded cheese and mix throughout the broccoli, ground turkey and cream cheese mixture.
Place pan into the oven for 15 -20 minutes or until cheese has melted
Remove the pan from the oven and Voila! Dinner is Ready!!!
