You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Roast the Carrots
Peel, trim, and cut carrots into ¼" slices on an angle.
Place carrots on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 15-18 minutes.
While carrots roast, make mashed potatoes.
Make the Mashed Potatoes
Cut potatoes into chunks.
Bring a medium pot with potato chunks covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.
Reserve ½ cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
Add sour cream, 2 Tbsp. potato cooking water, and half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for meatballs). Mash until smooth. If too thick, add remaining potato cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Cover and set aside.
While potatoes boil, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Form Meatballs
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
In a mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, ricotta, panko, and remaining garlic salt. Mix until completely combined.
Form turkey mixture into eight equally-sized meatballs.
Start the Meatballs
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add meatballs to hot pan and cook until browned on two “sides”, 2-3 minutes per side.
Add mushrooms and reduce heat to medium. Don't worry if pan seems crowded; mushrooms will cook down. Stir often until mushrooms begin to soften, 3-4 minutes.
Finish Meatballs and Finish Dish
Add 2 Tbsp. water and chicken demi-glace to pan. Cover, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes.
Remove from burner and gently stir in butter.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping meatballs with sauce. Bon appétit!
