Like a lot of families, our mid week menus consist of a lot of Turkey & Chicken Dishes. I don’t know how we would survive without the versatility of poultry in our meals. So readily available, economical and goes with everything – rice, pasta, potatoes and every sauce imaginable. I’ve talked in previous posts about how we use turkey as a good source of protein for Millie without having to make separate meals just for her.
I’m very pleased to be guest hosting this week’s #CookBlogShare. A weekly linky where food bloggers share their posts – All dishes are welcome, there’s no theme and as such, the variety of entries is fantastic. Many thanks to Jacqui from Recipes Made Easy who asked me to guest host this week. I take over the mantle from one of the co-hosts, Monika from Everyday Healthy Recipes, who hosted last week.
I had to choose a selection of #CookBlogShare entries to highlight – It was so difficult as they were all honestly so appealing. My natural instinct is to opt for the sweet bakes but I decided to be different and focus on poultry – Turkey, Chicken & Duck recipes that were entered. It’s also an excellent chance to mix up our mid-week meals.
5 Perfect Poultry Dishes (in no particular order)
TURKEY & LEEK PASTA BAKE FROM FARMERS GIRL COOK
Janice describes her dish as a ‘Warm and comforting hug of a dish’. This is a hearty dish, with bold flavours and very little time consuming cooking – Great for those cold winter nights when you yearn for comfort food.
ROLLED STUFFED TURKEY BREAST FROM EASY PEASY FOODIE
A truly beautiful meal – The colours of the fruity stuffing and the prosciutto wrap are stunning. A show piece that is suitable for Christmas Day but nowhere near as hard to make as it looks.
SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TAGINE FROM SEARCHING FOR SPICE
Again a bright and colourful plate, proving that poultry dishes needn’t be dull. Corina from Searching for Spice describes her dish as ‘perfect for cold autumn & winter evenings’ which sounds good to me.
ROAST DUCK WITH LENTILS AND RED CABBAGE FROM EASY PEASY FOODIE
Duck makes such a tasty alternative to turkey and chicken for the occasional mid week treat. Eb from Easy Peasy Foodie shares with us a simple and high protein way to serve Roasted Duck.
LEFTOVER TURKEY SOUP WITH MELTED PARMESAN STRIPS FROM ONCE UPON A FOOD BLOG
Anna from Once Upon a Food Blog is debating whether it is too early to be sharing a Christmas recipe? I’m not sure but what I do know is this soup is ideal to be eaten any week!
