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!
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
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
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.
