I made this yesterday for my husband's birthday using 8 oz. pouched chicken breast, leftover sauteed mushrooms/onions and(for seasoning), 1 tsp Old Bay and 1/2 tsp Spike. Any poultry seasoning should work. The two that I used have a fair amt of salt in them, so I reduced the quantity.

Turkey In the Straw -- 3 pts

Recipe By :JoAnna Lund -- Diabetics Healthy Exchanges Cookbook -- pg 189
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Lowfat pies

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 cup Bisquick Reduced Fat Baking Mix
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
2 eggs -- or equivalent in egg substitute
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1 cup water
8 ounces diced cooked turkey breast -- 1 1/2 cup
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped onion

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray a deep-dish 10 inch pie pan with butter-flavored spray.

In a large bowl, combine baking mix, dry milk powder, eggs, parsley flakes, poultry seasoning, and water.

Mix well using a wire whisk.

Stir in turkey, celery, and onion.

Pour mixture into prepared pie plate.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Place pie plate on a wire rack and let set 5 minutes.

Cut into 6 servings.

Each serving equals: Diabetic:2 meat, 1 starch 163 calories, 3 grams fat, 18 gm protein, 16 grams Carbohydrate, 266 mg Sodium, 1 gm fiber. HE: 1 2/3 protein, 2/3 bread, 1/2 vegetable, 1/3 skim milk.

This looks like it would freeze very well. I would cut into slices and individually wrap in foil. Put all wrapped slices in a freezer ziplock bag. Thaw in refrigerator (or just heat from the frozen state) . I would try a 325F oven for 10-15 minutes. Reheat them right in the foil. JaneStarr

NOTES : Thought I would share this recipe with all of you. This is a very flavorful dish besides being low in fat. I used Louis Rich oven roast breast of turkey which is presliced about 1/4 inch thick and fat free. It tastes like you are eating turkey with stuffing. I served it with baked acorn squash and "Grandma's Peach Cobbler". This is a very filling meal and seems like a good meal to serve now that it is fall. Enjoy!--Kathy
JaneStarr's Notes:
I made this last night using turkey leftover from cooking a whole breast in the crockpot on Sunday (1 hr. on low, 6 or more hrs on high -- seasoned with a cup of chicken broth poured over). I don't care for the flavor of raw onions, so I took some frozen chopped ones from my freezer and sauteed them (with a bit of sliced shallots)in a pan with cooking spray. I used Old Bay for the poultry seasoning. This was very tasty, but a bit dry. Next time, I'll serve it with some turkey gravy.
Comes out to 4 pts if cut into 4 servings (using Egg Sub.), but 1/6 of recipe is quite filling.

I found this recipe on the WW board and figured out the points for it. I understand it is from the old program in the 1990's or '80's.

1 1/2 TSP. SALT

Combine all ingredients in bowl. Divide mixture into twelve 3 oz.
portions and shape each portion into patties or links. Spray non-stick pan with cooking spray. Add sausages and cook til brown.

Uncooked patties may be frozen for future use. Frozen patties may be cooked by adding to a skillet 1 Tbsp. water and sausages in one layer.
Cover. Bring to a boil and cook til water evaporates. About 2 min.
Remove cover and cook to brown.

Per patty: 128 caloris; 7.1 gms fat; 0.1 gms fibre = 3.13 points

*i would imagine it would be even less fat if you used lean (breast meat) turkey ground.

Default Italian Turkey Treat

I'm one of those cooks who looks in the refridge and feels a lil creative.

1 package of Turkey Store ground turkey with italian seasonings already added
1 can of italian style stewed tomatoes/or crushed
cooking spray
an onion
some mushrooms
1 tbs of olive oil
chopped garlic (optional)
I sprayed a pan with cooking spray browned the turkey
tossed in the italian tomatoes my can was probably 14 oz
and filled the can halfway with water and tossed that in
Let it simmer for a few hours maybe 2This might be a good crockpot recipe
sprayed another pan with cooking spray and sauteed the chopped onion dumped that in
and chopped the mushrooms and did them up in a pan with the olive oil and garlic dumped that in and let it simmer a bit more
and tossed it with some angel hair
it makes a light sauce if you want it thicker you could add tomato paste and you also could skip the pasta as it was more stew ish

one more thing You could sautee the onions/mushrooms in either the liquid from the chopped garlic or some veggie broth to use less fat

Default Turkey Soft Tacos

I just tried this one today and it was Wonderful--even DH who wants to hate all ww recipes LOVED it!!!

I got it out of the Simply the Best cookbook that I bought at my meeting.

1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
one 8 oz can tomato sauce(no salt added)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, deveined and chopped
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
eight 6" fat-free flour tortillas, warmed
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 tomato, chopped

Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstrick cooking spray; heat. Add the turkey, onion and garlic; cook, stirring as needed, until turkey is browned and the onion is soft(about 5 min)

Add the beans,bell pepper, tomato sauce, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder and oregano; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring as needed. 10-15 min(long enough for flavors to blend)

Top the tortillas with the mixture, lettuce and tomato; roll up and enjoy!!!

Very Filling and tasty!!!!! I thought it was a little on the spicy side, but not to bad. DH added more jalapenos to his.

Default Turkey Eggplant Parmesean

This is a little different than most, and is one I make over and over.

1 lb ground turkey
5 slices Veggie Cheese (mozzerella flavored only)
1 tbs. Parmesean cheese
1 large eggplant peeled and cubed
1 large can tomatos (fresh cut)
1/2 onion
1 lb mushrooms
2 clove garlic, peeled and sliced
1tbs olive oil
1 tbs fresh chopped basil
1 teas dried 'Italian seasoning'

Brown the garlic lightly in the oil in a large skillet. Remove garlic and discard. Brown turkey well and then drain. Remove turkey to holding plate (refrigerate to hold for safety)

In same pan, brown diced onion until lightly carmelized. Then add tomatoes,spices, eggplant, and mushrooms. Cook covered until the eggplant is softened and reduced in size (about 10 mins) Cook uncovered stirring occasionally until liquid is reduced to a slightly soupy consistency.

Layer with meat in rectangular pan. After first layers are down, cover with a single layer of the cheese slices. End with a tomato layer and sprinkle on the parmesean.

Bake in 350 oven until bubbly and lightly browned (20 mins or so). Let sit for a few minutes before serving. Very good as a dinner main course or as a brown bag lunch.

Note: If the liquid does not reduce quickly, you can add a small amount of thickener like 2 tbs of bread crumbs, but usually mine does well without. I also don't add additional salt, so let your taste buds decide. The sweetness of the onions reduces the need for any additional sugar, and the Fresh Cut tomatos really don't need any.

Has 5 points per serving with 6 servings.

Default Spicy Turkey Chili

servings | 6
POINTS per serving | 3


1 pound lean ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
16 oz canned diced tomatoes
1 cup canned tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp white wine vinegar
2 piece bay leaf
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


Spray 3 qt. saucepan (or larger) with non-stick cooking spray. Heat onions and turkey over high heat until turkey is browned. Stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally until chili is thick. Approximately 25-30 minutes. Remove bay leaves before serving.

I got this recipe from Weight Watchers before they were into the points program and have been cooking it for my family for years. They love it (and of course they love to add cheese to it). I ran it through the e-tools recipe builder (or whatever it's called) and got the points for it.
