Double Mileage Meal: Ground Turkey

To complete 2 different meals, you will need:
2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
2 1/2 tablespoons dry onion soup mix
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten (optional)
1 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Splenda
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
10 hamburger buns

This weeks double mileage meal started with 2 1/2 pounds of ground turkey.

I placed 1 1/2 pounds in a bowl and 1 pound in a second bowl.

In the larger bowl, I mix the ingredients for Turkey Burgers. While, in the 2nd, bowl, I mix up the turkey & onions soup for Sloppy Joes.

I form and cook the turkey burgers for tonight's meal, while at the same time browning the meat for the sloppy joes.

Then, when tomorrow comes (or anytime later in the week), all I have to do is add ingredients to the pan & simmer....viola, dinner in a snap!

Also, since we have no need for 6 burgers, I cooked 3 (one for each adult & one split between the toddlers) and individually wrapped and froze the other 3. So in reality, I've got triple mileage :)
