Description

Turkey, gouda cheese, fresh vegetables, and sweet potatoes layered into a delicious meal that kids will enjoy making on their own!  This makes a meal pickey eaters will gobble up!


Ingredients

1 pound ground turkey

1 tbsp poultry season

2 cups chopped carrots (about 4 large carrots)

2 cups green beans trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

2 cups mashed sweet potato (about 2 large sweet potatoes)

1 1/2 cups shredded gouda cheese


Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add the poultry season to the ground turkey and stir to combine.

Add EVOO in a skillet and cook the ground turkey until no longer pink.

While the turkey is cooking in the skillet, pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork and microwave for 5 minutes (depending on the size of the sweet potatoes, you may need to add on another 2 minutes until the sweet potato is soft enough for the fork to easily pierce though the flesh.  I have a “potato” setting on my microwave that I use).

Let the sweet potatoes cool, and then remove the skins.  Using a fork, mash the sweet potatoes.

Once the ground turkey and the sweet potatoes are done, set aside.

Add the carrots and green beans to a microwave safe bowl, add about 1/2 cup of water, cover with a paper towel, and microwave for 3 minutes.

If you can not find shredded gouda, you can use a grater.  Grate the cheese until you have about 1 1/2 cups.

You can use individual loaf pans, or you can use a full size loaf pan.  If you are using individual loaf pans, you will divide the ingredients into 4 portions.  Layer the ingredients as follows:

  • ground turkey
  • gouda cheese
  • carrots and green beans
  • sweet potato

Cook in the oven for about 15 minutes until hot and steamy

Notes

Individual loaf pans are 3×5 in size, and can be found in most grocery stores.  They are also usually found in a pack of four.

  • Chop carrots with a food processor by pulsing until they are large chopped pieces.
  • Buy green beans that are already washed and trimmed.
  • Microwave the sweet potatoes for about 7-9 minutes until soft enough that a fork pieces through the flesh.
  • Microwave the green beans and carrots will save time, and also by using a “steaming” method will help preserve some of the nutrients.
