When Thanksgiving season comes around, everyone has turkey on the brain. But I’m the kind of person who thinks about incorporating turkey into my meals pretty much year-round. After all, who says turkey is only for Thanksgiving? It’s actually really easy to eat like a Turketarian year round…and that doesn’t mean you have to cook an entire turkey every time you’re craving it!
Don’t believe that turkey isn’t just for Thanksgiving? Check out the Butterball Cookbook Plus App and you’ll see just how many fabulous recipes you can utilize it in.
Even at breakfast! These BLT Biscuits made with Turkey Bacon are certainly not just for the fall season.
Butterball’s Turkey Bacon really is one of the best reasons to become a Turketarian. I’ve been incorporating this Peas with Turkey Bacon dish into my weekly rotation. It takes just minutes to prepare and makes an otherwise kind of boring vegetable incredibly fun. And it’s simple, which makes a perfect Thanksgiving side dish too!
