If you think beef is the only way to go with meatballs, think again. Turkey Meatballs and Marinara are pan-seared then braised in rich, robust marinara for a dish that not only your family will love but it’s classy enough (if you’re the type that has classy friends) for company too.

While I could be perfectly content with old-school marinara my husband is a card-carrying carnivore that needs meat and actually believes it improves his life. Who am I to argue?

These turkey meatballs won over the carnivore who calls them “fowl balls“. I can’t make this stuff up. They’ll win over your pickiest eater, too.

Turkey Lentil Soup – easily made with ground turkey OR leftover Thanksgiving turkey. A delicious, hearty soup packed with turkey, vegetables and lentils. 

 

Soup is my go-to in the winter months. It hits the spot on a cold day and it’s a great way to clean out the refrigerator and pantry.

I’m always on the prowl for new soup recipes and Turkey Lentil Soup is one of my favorites for a few reasons: it whips up quickly but has the rich flavor of soup that’s simmered for hours, it’s a triple threat of nutrition: turkey, lentils and V-8 juice and I can make it using either ground turkey or leftover Thanksgiving turkey when I can’t eat even one more turkey sandwich.

Turkey Lentil Soup for the win.
