5 Ways to Make Turkey Your Secret Weapon for Everyday Meals:

Plan ahead! When it comes to meal planning, a whole turkey delivers huge value as a ‘cook once, eat twice or more’ meal. You can buy a whole turkey to cook on the weekend and feed your family for several days during the week.  Freeze portions of leftovers to use as meal-starters for quick weekday dinners and lunches.

Get back to basics! Enjoying more meals at home is one of the best things you can do for your family. Cooking meals from scratch lets you control the ingredients and include more health-boosting whole foods such as turkey, veggies and whole grains.

Make the switch! Turkey makes a fantastic everyday choice for all your protein needs.  Think about switching to turkey and turkey cuts for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.  Turkey is lean, nutrient-rich and packed with protein to give you long-lasting energy that powers you through busy everyday schedules and activities.

Get a nutrient boost! Turkey is packed with nutrients like vitamin B12 (important in keeping your nervous system – the body’s electrical wiring – working well), selenium (an antioxidant mineral) and zinc (for a strong immune system).

Bump up the protein! Eating 20 to 30 grams of quality protein with all of your meals can help build and maintain muscle. If being more active, feeling more energized, or maintaining a healthy weight are part of your everyday goals, then consider putting more lean protein on your plate.  Turkey is the power protein of choice – it’s an excellent source of high quality protein with each 100 gram portion serving up about 30 grams of lean protein.

Apricot & Brie Stuffed Turkey Breast

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
240g baby spinach
2 x 1.5kg fresh single turkey breasts with skin
200g brie, thinly sliced
6 dried apricots, chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees C.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes.

Add garlic and spinach to the pan and cook until spinach just starts to wilt.  Season with salt and pepper then remove from heat to cool.

Butterfly the turkey by slicing horizontally into the long, thick side of the breast, being careful not to slice all the way through. Open the turkey to lay flat and place, cut side up, on a piece of plastic wrap.

Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten until 1/4 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap.

Arrange ½ the spinach mixture, brie slices and apricot over the turkey leaving a 2cm border. Press evenly to flatten.

Starting with one long edge, tightly roll the turkey into a log and tie tightly with kitchen string.

Transfer the turkey, seam side down, to the prepared baking sheet. Bake until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160 degrees , about 1hr 15m.
