This tasty recipe was sent to me by my client Laurel! Thanks for the tasty recipe and pics Laurel!!! Can’t wait to try it!
Okay…here is the dish that I pulled out of the hat because I was STARVING and needed a quick healthy meal that stayed in your diet guidelines
I used 2 Jenny O turkey burger pattys (for left overs)
In a fairly good sized fry pan add turkey burger pattys sprinkle with onion powder, garlic salt and italian seasoning
add about a tsp of olive oil to get them to start to brown. Add about a package of sliced mushrooms (less if you want but I love mushrooms) and start browning those in the pan around the pattys. After you flip the pattys and have them fairly well cooked then add about half of a can (soup can sized) of Del Monte diced tomatoes with garlic, oregeno and basil at this time also add a splash of red wine…any old wine will do and it is probably a total amount of about a tablespoon maybe…just let it bubble down and it will thicken up a little as it cooks down. Just throw the patties on the plate and spoon the sauce over the top and sprinkle with some parmasean cheese…that’s all there is to it. It took about 15 minutes start to finish because everything is packaged
Here is the nutrition info
Jennie O turkey burger patty: 170 calories per patty 70 calories from fat; 8 grams of fat, 0 trans fat, 2.5 saturated fat
0 carbs, 0 sugar, 23 grams of protien
Del Monte diced tomatoes with basil oregano and basil: Per 1/2 cup 50 calories; total carb 11, protien 2 , sugars 8
Grated Parmeasan Romano cheese; per 1/4 cup (I use a lot less) 100 calories, 60 calories from fat; total fat 6 grams; 9 grams of protien and 1 carb
You could add fresh bell pepper and onions to this also but it would increase the time needed to cook and when you are a hungry girl the faster the better I am also sure there are ways to make this better like changing out the turkey burger to a chicken breast pounded out thin so it would cook fast. So considering I was starving and wanting something that tasted like “real” food and still staying in the diet I don’t think this was too bad at all. If you like it with a little kick…add a few red chili flakes to the oil when browning the meant…. the options are endless with this one!!!
