I have been on a bit of a casserole kick lately. One of my favorite things about casseroles is the easy clean up. Dinner sometimes means every pot and pan in my kitchen ends up in the sink and I spend way too much time cleaning up and not enough time playing on my laptop. hee hee! I found this recipe over at Weelicious. If you aren't familiar with Weelicious, you really should jump on over and check it out. It is packed with kid friendly meal ideas, including a ton of fantastic and healthy bento-ish lunch ideas for kids.
The original recipe is vegetarian but I decided to add a little ground turkey, some minced garlic and parsley. This casserole was easy and delicious...my son even asked for seconds! I'll definitely be adding this to our list of weekly dinner ideas.
1 tbsp canola oil
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp minced dried onion
1/2 lb ground turkey
1 cup milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
2 cups cooked brown rice (Trader Joe's sells a pre-cooked brown rice in their frozen section... so handy!)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar (We love Tillamook brand)
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray oil a 9" baking dish
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic and onion for about 1 minute. Add the ground turkey. Break up turkey and cook completely. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Stir in the broccoli, corn, rice, cheese and turkey, parsely, salt and pepper. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes or until set.
Serve with a nice green salad.
Hope you all have a fantastic week and thanks so much for stopping by. ;)
