Week Is Almost Over

First I have to share the news that Kurt got his mortgage after a bit of paperwork and him losing his temper with the loans manager. Now everything hinges on the house inspection. That will be occuring in the middle of next week.

I had some frozen turkey from Thanksgiving and wanted to try something new. So I searched my cookbooks and came up with this Turkey Cheese Bake.
This is a picture of it right out of the oven. Nice and golden yellow.


This is a picture of the finished product on the table waiting to be served. I think that the next time I make it I will add some chopped green peppers and chopped mushrooms to it. Other than that Harvey really enjoyed it. This is similar to a crustless quiche.

I am going to share the recipe with all of you.

Turkey Cheese Bake

4 large potatoes with peel

Water

Salt

Grated sharp Cheddar cheese (I used medium)

4 fork beaten large eggs

2 1/4 tsp dried parsley flakes

1/4 tsp dried thyme

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups finely chopped leftover cooked turkey

2/3 cup half and half cream or milk (I used milk)

3 tbsp Mayonnaise

1 tbsp tomato paste

2/3 cup grated Cheddar cheese (either sharp or medium)

Cool potatoes in water and first amount of salt in a large uncovered pot for about 10 minutes or until partially cooked. Drain and cool. Peel potatoes and grate them coarsely into a medium bowl.

Add the next 6 ingredients. Stir and set aside.

Combine next four ingredients in a separate bowl, this is where I would add the chopped peppers (about 1/2 cup) and chopped mushrooms (same amount). Stir and spread evenly in the bottom of a greased 9 inch springform pan. Spoon the potato mixture over top. Spread evenly.

Sprinkle with the second amount of cheese. Bake at 350 F for about 1 hour or until golden and set. Cuts into 8 wedges.

Serve with a crusty bread and a salad.

Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Well off to visit you all.

Everyone have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Good for Kurt for getting his mortgage. Sometimes one needs to lose our temper to get something across!! lol

Oh my, that Turkey Cheese Bake sure does look delicious. I'm going to print off the recipe and will have to try it with the leftover turkey after Christmas.

Hope all is well up your way. We had more snow flurries this afternoon and it was starting to look white but then it changed to rain so it all melted. Take care:-) xoxo

No snow here right now. In fact we are supposed to hit 17 C tomorrow! Can not really see that happening, but I will take some warmer weather right now. It was a cold summer and fall out here.
