One of the best things about this time of year is the abundance of comfort food! I have a long list of favorite recipes for the fall and winter, but I tried a few NEW recipes this month and ended up with some keepers. As I do each month, I have rounded them up for you all in one post!
Recipe #1: Thanksgiving Turkey Breast in the Crock Pot
This was definitely my favorite new recipe of the month! I followed Whitney Jordan’s tried and true crock pot method for cooking a frozen (thawed) turkey breast in the crock pot, and it couldn’t have been easier! It yielded a very moist and flavorful turkey without taking up much time OR any space in my oven! I used the gravy packet that came with the turkey, added about a cup of the drippings from the crock pot and had super simple, delicious gravy. I’ll do this again!
Recipe #2: One Pot Cheesy Turkey Taco Chili Mac (pictured at the top of the post)
I’ve been on the hunt for a healthier alternative to our beloved Taco Mac and Cheese, and this is it! It’s full of flavor but is much healthier – and can still be made in one pot!
Recipe #3: Greek Grilled Chicken and Hummus Wraps
This one also meets the “quick and healthy” requirement! I served these on the sundried tomato Flat-Out wraps and my husband with very selective food preferences (read: he’s a picky eater) LOVED it. These wraps have been on rotation all month.
Recipe #4: Smoked Sausage Skillet
I actually found this recipe on an advertisement page in a magazine! I used turkey sausage and brown rice to up the “healthy” factor and was really pleased with yet another quick and easy one pot meal! Tip: I make rice in bigger batches and freeze it in individual portions.
