Good and Tasty Tuesday: Markdown Meals

I am joining Stay at Home Babe on Tuesdays for her Good and Tasty link up!  I love it and her.  So just forget that I am a day late.  That is the procrastinator in me you will get used to it.
So my meal today is inspired by a very good purchase, turkey burger for just $1.20 a pound.  I couldn't resist and then I got home and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I had been wanting to try making my own chicken nuggets with broccoli a recipe I had received in my email from one of the parent websites (sorry I can not remember which one).
Since I had no chicken or the recipe I decided to make up my own! Check it out after the break!






 Turkey Nuggets
1.5 lbs Turkey Burger lean
1         Egg
1/2 C  Broccoli (steamed and finely chopped)
3    C  Panko bread crumbs


All spices are estimations as I just throw it in until it looks and smells good.
1    t   Pepper
2    t   Garlic Power
1/2 t   Salt
1/2 C Italian cheese blend



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Mix burger, egg and broccoli (you can add more broccoli the half cup is all I had on hand) until evenly distributed.  Mix all other ingredients in a shallow dish. Grab a couple tablespoons of burger mix, roll into a ball

and drop in bread crumb mix.

 Flatten the ball then flip and pat into the crumbs.  Place on pizza stone or cast iron pan.

Bake for 15 minutes flipping after 10 minutes.  Enjoy with your favorite dip.  Hubs preferred BBQ and I honey mustard.  Couldn't get the little one to try them or anything else last night so will have to try again soon! It was very yummy and filling.

    I love the idea of chopping up the broccoli in there too. I'm starting to think I should do that with Ella to get her to eat more veggies too -- cleverly camouflage them in other foods ;)
    Keep up the good work~!
