Alex's Favorite Skillet Meal / #SundaySupper

Alex's Favorite Skillet Meal is one I make often, although most days he makes it himself. He likes to eat healthy, and he likes it to be quick and easy. This skillet meal is all of those things. I use brown rice in this meal, and I make it easy by cooking enough rice to last a few days. It refrigerates very well, and it makes the meal quicker to put together. For the meat, I use frozen turkey burgers. They taste great and are 93% lean. Anything more than that, and it doesn't seem to have enough taste. My sons career requires that he be fit, so this recipe does the job. Tasting good is an added bonus!

Spray a pan with cooking spray. Heat the skillet to medium and add the turkey burger. Sprinkle both sides with chicken seasoning. Cook burger until it reaches 160 degrees, flipping several times.
Chop the turkey burger into small bite size pieces, and let it continue to cook all the way through.
Add the rice to the skillet and stir as it heats up. 
Add the egg whites to the center of the pan. Mix the eggs into the turkey and rice as it cooks.
Cook the broccoli, covered with water, in the microwave for 2-3 minutes on high.

Add a little more cheese, place in a bowl and enjoy!

Fresh Roasted Turkey Sandwiches on Semi Homemade Rolls

Today we are roasting a turkey breast. It's such a simple thing to do, and it is so much tastier than buying turkey from the deli. It's also great practice for Thanksgiving!!
Fresh Roasted Turkey Breast
Turkey Breast
2 Carrots
1 stalk Celery
1/4 of an Onion
Rough chop the carrots. A rough chop is used a lot when 
you are making pot roasts, or baking chicken or turkey.
To rough chop, you are chopping the item with no
regard to identical size. You don't need to worry about the
look because you are only using the item to flavor during the
roasting, then throwing it out.
Rough chop the onions.
Rough chop the celery.
Place the turkey in a pan with a roasting rack under it.
Mine looks this way because my roasting rack and roaster
are still in storage from when we moved. So, I improvised.
Sometimes we have to!! Place the veggies in the pan.
Add butter, cut in 4 pieces, and pepper on the turkey.
Roast the turkey, at 325 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
During that time, the butter will melt, and using a spoon 
or a baster drizzle the butter on the top of the turkey breast.
Keep an eye on the turkey. I turned the breast over 
about 1 hour into the roasting. I should have put it this way
when I began the roasting. Insert a thermometer.
You can do this at the beginning if you wish.
Cook the turkey to 170 degrees.
Take the turkey out of the oven, and let it rest for about
15 minutes.
Once the turkey has rested, cut the turkey from the bone.
Isn't it beautiful?
Let's make our rolls.
Remember these?
We used them here.
We are using them again for these sandwiches. They are
a family favorite.
I took 1 loaf and cut it into 8 pieces.
Put it on a cookie sheet, and let it rise in a warm spot.
Cook at 350 degrees for 9 minutes,
then let the rolls cool.
Make your sandwiches. I used romaine lettuce, onion,
roma tomato, and 1/2 of an avocado. I added a small dab
of mayo on the warm homemade buns. Sooo Good!

Thanks for joining me today!
There is nothing as good as a fresh made turkey sandwich,
made from a turkey roasted in your own oven.

Tomorrow we will be making our Mountain Trail Mix.
 Stop by and grab a handful!
