Creamy Baked Turkey Recipe


Regardless if you work outside or inside the home, your day is jam packed with activities and appointments that can make supper time a challenge. Getting a warm, homemade supper on the table can be a family’s biggest obstacle of the day and one that we all strive to overcome.

How do we do it?

Some nights we do better than others, but if you are like me, you still always want to do better for your family. Simple recipes that include few ingredients and little cooking time are popular at my house on these busy evenings. I love knowing that with just a few ingredients I generally have on hand in my refrigerator and pantry, I can have supper on the table in less time than it would take for take out to be delivered or to drive through the fast food line and make it back home.

I was so excited when I was asked by BlogHer to participate in their Hellmann’s and Best Foods review. All of the recipes presented to me sounded delicious and like something that my family would enjoy. In less than 30 minutes, I had a delicious, piping hot supper on the table that my family absolutely loved.

The best part?

The recipe was so simple my son enjoyed helping me prepare it. I love knowing he joined me in the kitchen making our supper while sharing with me what happened during football practice that afternoon. As I was cleaning up dishes after getting Little Buddy to bed, I realized supper times just really can’t get much better than this.

Here’s the recipe.

  7. The biggest challenge is trying to get dinner served early, so the kids can get homework done in time to head out the door for the girls cheer practice, big guy scout meeting, and the 1 year old fussy with teething and wanting to be held.

  20. I am actually a vegetarian and have been for over 11 years; however, I remember cooking turkeys before making the change. The BEST turkey leftover that I remember was veggie soup. We would take the left over gravy, any left over veggies, and left over turkey that was chopped up and put it all in a crockpot. Cover with water and season with poultry seasonings and cook. WONDERFUL stew!

  21. I turned the leftovers into grilled sandwiches.

  22. I love making warm turkey sandwiches with miracle whip using leftover turkey.
