Turkey Roll Ups

I came across the recipe on diaperswappers, so it is not mine to claim! This was actually very easy to make. The preparation time is about 10 minutes and I loved that.

You need a pound of ground turkey
1 package of stuffing
1 can of turkey gravy

Preheat your oven at 350

I started off by spreading the ground turkey out on wax paper that was on a baking sheet.
I cooked the stuffing which takes about 5 minutes, so do it while you spread out the ground turkey. Once it was spread out, I seasoned it with garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, and pepper - but this is your meal so use whatever you want!

Once your stuffing is cooked, spread it across the top of the ground turkey as evenly as possible.

Now.... here comes the fun part! Use the wax paper to roll it together. If you just lift the wax paper, it is very easy to do this - slowly
It will look like this....
Pinch the sides closed.
You will want to bake it for an hour at 350. After 45 minutes, take half of a can of turkey gravy and drizzle over top. Save the rest of the gravy for spreading over top when eating.

This was delicious! We all, including Caelyn, had second helpings. This was definitely a good meal and there was even enough for lunch tomorrow for Andrew!

Serve with some kind of potato - mashed, garlic, whatever floats your potato boat!

Look at that swirl of stuffing yumminess!

So, time for a price breakdown to see if this meal was thrifty or not.

1 lb of ground turkey - $2.87
generic stuffing - $1.16
1 can of turkey gravy - $.97

If you serve with mashed potatoes.. that is about 6-8 potatoes for us, so about $1, plus some butter or margarine or whatever you use!!) - about $.25 and some milk about another $.25

The total of this meal, including mashed potatoes is $6.50
Now, this is not as cheap as I like, but if I had thought about it, I bet there are coupons for perdue ground turkey, stuffing and turkey gravy. But still, it is plenty cheap especially because it is a full lunch for Andrew tomorrow so no price tomorrow for lunch!

Make this for dinner and I bet it'll be a hit! Let me know if you do!
