Idaho Turkey

Submitted by: LAWOLF2
Idaho Turkey

Introduction

Red, Hot and Blue serves a dish called Idaho Pig, with Pulled Pork for a total of 1022.61 calories per serving and that is without vegetables. Due to my allergies, it is one of the few meals that I can eat out and that is almost a full day's worth of calories for me. So I am remaking that recipe to a healthier portion size and with some healthier options. It is a great way to use the left over Thanksgiving turkey.

Ingredients

    4 medium baking potatoes
    1 1/3 cup shredded cooked Turkey light meat
    4 cups chopped, cooked broccoli
    1 cup Kraft Shredded 2% Mexican Four Cheese blend
    8 tbsps reduced fat Sour Cream
    2 tbsps Land O Lakes light butter with canola oil
    4 tbsp sliced green onion
    1/2 tsp Herbamare Herb Seasoning Salt

Directions

Wash and poke potatoes with a fork. Wrap potatoes in paper towel. Place in microwave. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. Turn the potatoes and cook for an additional 6 minutes. If the potatoes are done, they should feel soft when squeezed. If not, turn and cook for a couple minutes longer.

While the potatoes are cooking, steam 4 cups of broccoli. and warm and shred the turkey. Slice the green onions. .

When potatoes are done, place each potato on a plate. Cut them open and divide the toppings on the potatoes. On each potato sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon Herbamare, 1/2 tablespoon butter, 1/3 cup shredded turkey, 1 cup broccoli, 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1 tablespoon sliced green onions, and top with 1 tablespoon sour cream.

NOTES: Since we accommodate various allergies at our house, we would also provide these options for those with different dietary needs and preferences. These changes will change the calorie content of the recipe.

Salsa would be provided for those like my husband and sons-in-law who were not allergic to tomatoes and peppers who wanted to add an additional "kick" to their potato.

For my daughter who is allergic to russet potatoes and cow's dairy, we substitute a sweet potato and goat's cheese and leave off the sour cream and butter and serve the broccoli with herbamare on the side.

For my lacto-vegetarian niece we substitute a sweet potato and black or white beans for the turkey and serve the broccoli with heramare on the side. The grandchildren prefer the white beans because they are softer.
