2. Instant Pot 4-Ingredient Barbeque Turkey
One of our favorite pressure cooker recipes is BBQ Turkey Breast. In the past, a turkey wasn’t something that I would normally put into meal plan rotation. It always seemed like a “holiday meal” kind of meat. But after doing a little research I realized you don’t have to purchase the whole turkey anymore…turkey comes fresh in breasts, tenderloin, or ground. Plus, turkey has more protein, fewer calories, and less total fat and cholesterol than chicken.

18. Turkey, Spinach, & Cheese Meatballs
There’s always excitement at my house when meatballs are on the menu, but I wasn’t sure how the kids would feel about these because, well, spinach. But they loved them, spinach and all. What makes them special is the addition of turkey sausage. Not only does the sausage make the meatballs tender, it also adds great flavor without the need for a ton of other ingredients. To make life easy, I brown the meatballs under the broiler rather than in a frying pan. That means no stovetop splatters, and you can get the rest of dinner ready while the meatballs cook.
19. Turkey & Dumpling Soup

25. Maple Cider-Brined Turkey with Bourbon Gravy
Last month, a couple from a close group of our friends moved back to the Twin Cities. To make sure we saw enough of each other, we planned a weekly group dinner with a different home hosting each week. It was such a joy to see these friends on a weekly basis who we were used to seeing only every few months. While the weekly dinners definitely aren’t sustainable with all of our busy schedules, we really wanted to keep up with at least monthly dinners.
