Growing up my mom used to make the best comfort food. Now for me as an adult comfort food is turkey bean hotdish. This is a one pot meal if you choose, quick to put together and great to make in bulk for freezing for another meal.
Normally this is made with ground turkey, but I did attempt a trial with left over slow cooked chicken. Not bad, but not the same. Moral of the story – experimenting in the kitchen is good but for this one stick with the recipe!
Turkey Bean Hotdish
½ cup red onion, diced
½ pound ground turkey
¼ cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup ketchup
2 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
1 can each (16 ounces/each) – kidney beans, butter beans, small white beans, black beans
Pre-heat oven to 300’ F
In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat brown onion and ground turkey with a little olive oil
Drain & rinse beans
Mix brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar and mustard together
Add beans and liquids to the ground turkey
Remove from heat and cover
Place in oven – bake for 1 ½ hours
Yield – 6 servings (1 ½ cups each)
