A note about serious food allergies

What is comfort food? You may also ask what's "good music" or a "pretty painting." It depends on the individual, a subjective standard. Saying all that, objectively, this meal is total comfort food. Creamy mashed potatoes, moist meatballs, and a rich, buttery mushroom sauce to blanket it all? We've already got our slippers and jammies on. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

Before You Cook

Cooking Guidelines

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

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 3, 4, and 5. In Step 5, cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-5 minutes.

  1. 1

    Roast the Carrot

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot on an angle into ¼" slices. Place carrot 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 carrot roasts, make mashed potatoes.

  2. 2

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into large evenly-sized 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 garlic salt. 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 mushrooms and form meatballs.

  3. 3

    Prepare Mushrooms and Form Meatballs

    Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. In a mixing bowl, add ground turkey, ricotta, panko, and ¼ tsp. salt and mix until completely combined. Form turkey mixture into eight equally-sized meatballs.

  4. 4

    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. Don't worry if pan is crowded; mushrooms will cook down. Cover, and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally until mushrooms soften, 4-6 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish Meatballs and Finish Dish

    Add 2 Tbsp. water and chicken demi-glace to hot 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 and mashed potatoes with sauce. Bon appétit!
