This recipe is a little time consuming but it’s worth the effort for a special occasion or if you really want something to wow guests. It doesn’t have many ingredients but the flavor is perfect. If you’re feeling a little healthy you can bake these instead of frying them but I haven’t tried that yet so your results may vary.
Take french fries (or really, in this case roasted potatoes) to the next level by adding chili on top of it. This comes together surprisingly quickly and can be topped with anything from cheese to jalapenos and ranch if that’s what floats your boat.
This is such a simple sauce but it’s absolutely delicious. Served with a wide noodle to pick up all those nice chunks of turkey (or chicken or beef or whatever ground meat you end up using) and tomato there’s really something truly delicious about taking good food and making a good meal. You can add some grated Parmesan on top but I found that if seasoned right, the cheese just didn’t have much to add so it’s all about your taste. You can add in more spices or herbs if you want but I found the perfectly paired down flavors packed a nice punch and with just salt and pepper you’re able to really taste the underlying garlic, olive oil, and balsamic. Sometimes life is better when it’s simple.
I’m sure there’s only about 1000 recipes for turkey burgers. In the end it’s basically a reverse meatloaf in some ways but I also thought these burgers came out perfectly and they took less time than I assumed. By adding some finely chopped vegetables to the recipe, I think it keeps them moist while also stretching the amount of burgers you get from a pound of meat.
This is a delicious change from soup and a nice throwback to a lot of peoples childhoods. I haven’t had Spaghettios in probably over a decade and I’ve never eaten the one with meatballs but I can almost assure you this one is way more delicious than the one in a can and honestly, very easy to make! You can sub in any type of meatballs or leave them out for a vegetarian version.

This is a great recipe that uses pizza dough, cheese, and cold cuts to make something delicious and easy. You can serve it without or without a marinara dipping sauce depending on how you feel. I love the way it looks and how quickly it comes together.
I have tried a lot of turkey chili dishes in my day but this one is the perfect amount of vegetables and chili with that strong heartiness and spice to it that doesn’t just make it taste like tomato sauce or a sloppy joe. This recipe isn’t soupy or brothy but instead mostly made of ground turkey and beans which leaves you feeling full after.
This was a delicious dish and I plan on making it again and again. Since the turkey is put it bone and all it might be better to serve it carved up basically and then put back in. In the future I’ll do this because we sort of just picked off the bone from the pot, which worked out alright. This dish is not as spicy as it sounds and ends up with quite a savory flavor instead.
Scotch eggs are British/Scottish/English pub food and they’re usually fried but since I’m not a big fan of fried food I went ahead and baked them instead. They’re actually fairly simple to make but they do make a bit of a clean up job since they need to be dipped in multiple things (plus there’s no way to make them except for sticking your hands in everything!).

I first had piroshki at Pike Place Market at the aptly named Piroshki Piroshki and they were delicious so I’ve tried my hand at making them. Make sure all your inside bits are nicely chopped before you start it’ll speed up the cooking and cook more evenly as well.
