Healthy Creamed Turkey

Serves 8

Creamed turkey is a quintessential “comfort food” and with this recipe you can whip it up anytime – no need to wait for Thanksgiving turkey leftovers! My kids are especially fond of this dish.


  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1, 8 oz. container of sliced mushrooms
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 lb. of sliced turkey breast (I use deli-style – preferably Boar’s Head), diced
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 4 omega 3 eggs, hard boiled and diced
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 large dollops of low-fat plain Greek-style yogurt
  • ½ cup of chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


In a large, heavy skillet, sauté the onions, celery and mushrooms in the olive oil over medium heat until soft. Add the turkey, chicken broth, nutmeg, eggs, and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes. Add the yogurt and chopped parsley and stir until thoroughly combined. Serve over brown rice, multigrain pasta, quinoa or barley.
