I think I’ve mentioned that we’re going to be in Chicago for Thanksgiving.  Well… at Union Station, anyway, changing trains with a three hour layover on our cross-country trek from San Francisco back to Philadelphia.  Our friends Kate and Lori are going to meet us there for dinner.  It’s going to be a great time.

But celebrating Thanksgiving in Chicago means no Thanksgiving dinner at home.  No leftover turkey, no turkey soup, no turkey sandwiches on squishy white bread…

Enter Thanksgiving in a skillet.  It’s the perfect combination for those who want the taste of Thanksgiving without the hassle.

  • 1 pkg Ground Turkey
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 or 2 sweet potatoes, diced
  • 1 pkg Stuffing Mix
  • 3 cups broth

Melt butter in skillet with cover. Add onion and ground turkey. Cook until onions are soft and turkey is cooked through.

Add diced yams, broth and stuffing seasoning packet. Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer until yams are cooked through.

Add stuffing. Turn off heat. leave skillet covered for 3-4 minutes. uncover and stir.

It’s a great nosh.  Ans makes enough for those all-important leftovers!
