One Step Creamy Turkey Bake

Here's a brilliant mid-week recipe which I recently developed for British Turkey with minimal prep and washing up. This one step turkey bake is inspired by my friend Carrie (who is also incidentally founder of The Rosewater Bakery - Berkshire basked afternoon teas, cakes, catering and more to die for. She is incredibly talented, check her out. Had to get that in there!)

Carrie made a very similar dish for the kids when we were having a playdate at hers. Here's what's awesome about it - there's no pre-cooking like with lots of pasta bake recipes - everything is thrown in together and baked. Just 15 minutes prep (which you can do ahead) before leaving it in the oven for 45 minutes. It's just 332 calories per serving and completely delicious. 


One Step Creamy Turkey Bake

  • Time: 15 mins prep + 15 mins cooking
  • Cost: £1.45 per serving
  • Calories: 332 per serving
  • Serves: 4-5 adults

Ingredients:

  • 300g tub of full fat crème fraise
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh sage (or 1 tsp dried)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 600g fresh turkey breast, diced
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into thumb sized florets
  • 250g mushrooms, sliced
  • Boiled new potatoes or crusty bread to serve

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / 160 fan / gas mark 4.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the crème fraise, milk, garlic, mustard and sage. Season well to taste with salt and pepper and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the diced turkey, small broccoli florets and mushrooms to the sauce and mix together really well so everything is coated with the sauce.
  4. Pour into a large oven dish and bake for around 45 minutes until the turkey is cooked through and the broccoli is tender. If the sauce splits a little, give it a mix when it comes out of the oven, and it will come together again. Serve with new potatoes or crusty bread.
