Cheesy Turkey Skillet - 2 Ways

For those of you that have to modify dishes for the other members of your household, this recipe makes it is easy to do just that...

Ingredients:

1-2 lbs. lean ground turkey

1-2 tbsp olive or coconut oil

1 onion, diced

1-2 cloves garlic (or 1-2 tsp minced garlic)

1 cup zucchini/squash

1 sliced bell pepper

1/2 eggplant, diced

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1-2 small potatoes or sweet potatoes (with skin), diced & cooked

10-20 grape tomatoes, halved

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup chopped or diced tomatoes in sauce (I use Pom which comes in cardboard box)

Himalayan/sea salt, basil, oregano to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to broil. In skillet, heat oil & brown garlic and onion. Remove and transfer to covered bowl or dish. Add ground turkey, along with the spices & continue to stir & chop up meat until just cooked through. Transfer half the mixture, along with half of the onions & potatoes to a baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of cheese & bake until cheese is bubbly. On stove, add potatoes & onions to remaining turkey in the skillet, along with the other chopped vegetables. Cook for a couple of minutes & then add the sauce. When everything is cooked through, transfer to a baking dish, add remaining cheese & broil until cheese is bubbling.

NOTE: you will need to drain the liquid from the turkey in skillet once or twice - otherwise the dish will be too runny!
