Turkey a la King – Easy Inspiration
It’s important to mention that Easy Meals, are typically familiar dishes that you’ve probably enjoyed a number of times before. In fact, you may have a variation of this recipe already. However, if you are like me, your mind can be a blank slate when you try to select the meal plan for the week. One of the great things about cookbooks and online recipes, is that they can provide a spark of inspiration. Usually, we are not perusing for exotic and untried. Rather, we are looking for easy, proven and “hey, that looks like something we’d all like!”
Easy & Adaptable Recipe
I used a Jennie O Oven Roasted Turkey Breast for this recipe. It’s very moist turkey meat and a great convenience item. You can find this product typically with the other turkey products in the meat department at most larger grocery stores. I purchased a turkey breast which was about 1 1/4 pounds and had enough left over to make a tasty turkey salad as well.
When I’ve made this recipe in the past for my grandsons, I substituted thinly sliced carrots for the mushrooms, because they aren’t big mushroom fans. I also skipped the red pepper and doubled up on the celery. In fact, the original recipe calls for green pepper, but I substitute red pepper, because that’s what I prefer. As you can see, this is a very flexible recipe which can be adapted to your veggie preferences.
My daughter recently mentioned that she had been expanding the boys horizons with a variety of different recipes. With that in mind, I may have to give the exotic mushroom/pepper version a try the next time I serve this up for them. We’ll make foodies out of those grandsons before you know it!
