Dinner made easy {thanks to Jennie-O}

As a member of Jennie-O switch circle, they occasionally send me products to try out. And a few weeks ago, I received a package with two ground turkey products – lean taco seasoned ground turkey and lean Italian seasoned ground turkey. It was the perfect answer to “what’s for dinner?” that week!

Up first, the lean taco seasoned ground turkey. . . into nachos.


So simple. Layer a baking sheet with doritos, sprinkle with cheese and drizzle with taco sauce. Put in 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melty. Meanwhile, brown the turkey with 1/2 chopped onion. When the chips come out of the oven, top with ground turkey, and whatever you like on your nachos – I add chopped tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream.


Served on the baking sheet for minimal clean up. So stinking good and so easy!

Then, the next night,


I browned the lean Italian seasoned ground turkey and added a jar of spaghetti sauce. Served over pasta. Sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Yum!

I wasn’t sure what I would think of the Italian seasoning on the turkey. My Mom makes an amazing ground beef spaghetti sauce, and it’s hard to top that. While, my Mom still has the top spot, this was the perfect amount of seasoning and kicked up my weeknight dinner – win!


I will definitely be buying this product in the future.

  1. I love Jennie-O stuff. We just had a similar pasta dinner using their Italian turkey sausage and it was so good! Those nachos look awesome, too.
