Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers
I gave this 5 stars using this as a base for the recipe I ended up making. I basically used all the ingredients listed but had to adjust for 1 lb of turkey to make 4 burgers for 2 ppl. I sauteed my onion and garlic in a little Smart Balance spread first before adding to the meat and added about a tsp of rubbed sage also. Used Slap Ya Mama seasoning instead of salt and pepper (if you can't find that, Tony's would also work). Make sure to use a good bit of seasoning as turkey can be pretty tasteless otherwise. I used one whole egg as well. And added a little worchestershire sauce. Yea they're pretty darn soft and hard to handle at first, but if you get them formed and in the pan, fry on medium to med low heat and start flipping occasionally when they're firm enough to flip, two at a time depending on your pan size. They turned out so super juicy! Best turkey burgers I've made yet! Highly recommended :)

Cajun Cabbage with Rice
Had ground turkey and a cabbage from our garden.. didn't know what to do with it and found this recipe. Am I ever glad I did!!! I tweaked it just a bit because I didn't have a couple things, and substituted a bit. Otherwise, I kept the recipe as is. I used the ground turkey and added a little worcestershire sauce and extra black pepper when browning with veggies for flavor (I had no white pepper, but didn't really need it). Accidentally used a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, but with the brown rice, it worked since brown rice needs a little more moisture. I had no shredded cheese on hand, so sprinkled the top with parmesean cheese and broke apart some low fat sliced provalone I had and laid it out on top. Yes it's spicy.. but sooooo fantastic! And super easy!! I'd give this 10 stars if I could!! I will definitely make this again!!!

Pork Butt Roast with Vegetables
I made this a few nights ago, and my husband is still talking about it! My roast was still a little frozen when I started, so I was worried, but it turned out fantastic! I did everything as it said, but only filled my roasting pan about 1/4 to 1/3 full, as the juices from the meat filled it more. And I didn't use nearly as many veggies.. just what I thought we would need. Plus my roasting pan isn't big enough for that many. Oh, and instead of salt, I used Tony Cacheres seasoning, plus the pepper and garlic powder to rub on it before browning. I put some olive oil in the skillet before I browned, too. I'm sure it was supposed to be part of the recipe, but was forgotten. Anyway, this recipe is highly recommended!!! :-)
