If you missed our Butterball Canada #SchoolLunchIdeas Twitter Party last night – you missed a ton of great tips and tricks for making delicious packed lunches. But don’t fear! You can always tweet @Butterball_CA if you’re looking for fresh ideas that are quick on time – and easy on the waistline.
(BTW, they also happen to have an awesome “Mix it Up!” Contest happening right now on Facebook – simply submit your child’s favourite lunch ideas – and recipe – using Butterball products, and you’ll be entered to win $500 in Butterball gift certificates. That’s a whole lotta turkey!)
Now you may remember my recent post “Because Every Night is a Special Occasion”. In it, I featured Butterball Lean Turkey Burgers that my family simply adored (when Reid asks for seconds, I know it’s good!).
The thing is, the burgers come in a package of 6, and since there are four of us, I was hanging on to two lonely burgers for the longest time. At first I thought I would simply grill up the burgers for the two little guys, or heck – just go buy another pack – but then inspiration struck. Reading the ingredients on the box, I realized that the Lean Turkey Burgers were pretty much ground Butterball turkey shaped into patties. Since the meat was uncooked, and had no fillers or by-products, I concluded that I could easily incorporate the burgers into my favourite chili recipe! And, since I’d be swapping ground beef for ground turkey, I’d be saving over 50% of the fat and calories!…
