Skillet Turkey Vegetables and Stuffing Recipe {#LMDConnector}

Life Made Delicious

Anytime you see the word ‘skillet’ in the title of a dish, you know it’s going to be a good, hearty meal. In my opinion, skillet just means mixing all the good stuff together in one pot (skillet) and enjoying all the good things in one bowl.

I love being a Life Made Delicious Connector because it prompts me to challenge myself to try to test new recipes. Then I share the best ones with you guys. Through this program I’ve found some ‘favourites’ that get a permanent spot in my recipe folder.

Today I’m sharing a classic meal that’s been ‘skilletized’. I know that’s not a proper word…don’t worry! This recipe is good for any occasion but you’ll especially love it to use up your leftover holiday dinner foods.

SKILLET TURKEY VEGETABLES & STUFFING

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) margarine or butter
  • 1 lb (500 g) turkey breast, cut into thin bite-sized strips
  • 1 can (284 mL/10 FL oz) turkey gravy
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) water
  • 1 pkg Green Giant* Simply Steam* Niblets* Corn with Butter Sauce
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Green Giant* Frozen Sweetlets* Peas or SummerSweet Peas
  • 1 box stuffing mix for turkey
Method:
  1. In a large skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat.
  2. Add turkey strips; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until no longer pink in center.
  3. Add gravy, water, corn and peas; mix well. Heat to boiling; stir. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 6 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare stuffing mix as directed on box, omitting margarine; mix well.
  5. Spoon stuffing into eight 1/4-cup mounds on turkey mixture.
  6. Cover; cook over medium-low heat 8 to 10 minutes or until stuffing is thoroughly heated.

EASY SUBSTITUTES

I made a couple of additions/substitutions including using mixed vegetables instead of just peas. I also used chicken instead of turkey because that is what we already had on hand. To compliment the chicken I used chicken gravy and chicken stuffing.

This was a hit with the whole family. It is so good that I can’t even really describe it. It’s similar to a chicken/turkey pot pie but more like a stew. You just have to make it and try it for yourself. If you do please come back and let me know what you thought.

What’s your favourite winter recipe or a recipe that you like to use for using up left overs?

Happy cooking!
