TURKEY CRESCENT BAKE

Do you  ever have those nights where you have nothing planned for dinner, and you need a tried-and-true recipe with the ingredients on hand. This is the one that I throw together on those kind of evenings. It's one of those perfect weeknight meals that comes together quickly and is savored by the whole family. If there happens to be any left, it also makes for great leftovers for lunch.
Yum  


You know how much I love to cook with ground turkey so I always have several pounds of it on hand. Does anyone else like to eat those French fried onion from the container? So good and just a few sprinkled on top adds the perfect little crunch.

What you'll need

  1. There is nothing worse than not having something planned for dinner and trying to figure out what to cook. I'm always looking for recipes like this! This looks so yummy and I love that you used ground turkey instead of beef. Yay for recipes that come together quickly, too!
