Today’s Menu: Turkey Breast Panini w/ Chunky Potato Soup and Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

Still fighting a nasty sinus infection but the Stuffed Jalapenos helped somewhat to clear that up! For dinner I prepared Turkey Breast Panini w/ Chunky Potato Soup and Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos.

I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast/Hickory Smoked. It comes packaged as a half Turkey Breast and it’s 98% fat free and only 50 calories and 0 carbs! For the panini wrap I used Flatout Foildit Flatbread and it’s 100% Whole Wheat with Flax and it’s only 90 calories and 15 carbs. I then put the Turkey slices and a slice of Borden’s Smoked Cheddar on the Wrap and grilled it for 5 minutes in the Panini Grill. First time I used the Jennie – O Turkey Breast. It’s very tender and flavorful. Plus you can freeze the remaining breast to use later. Thank you Jennie – O!

For sides I warmed up a can of Cambell’s Chunky Potato and Cheese & Bacon Bits Soup. A great tasting and thick soup. As Campbell’s says “It’s a soup that eats like a meal”. I also preapared a side of Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos. Stuffed with chopped fresh Cilantro, fresh grated Dutch Smoked Gouda Cheese, and Ground Turkey. Then wrapped with Jennie – O Turkey Bacon and broiled in the oven for 20 minutes, turning once. These are fantastic!! The Jalapeno, Ground Turkey, Gouda cheese and Cilantro make an incredible flavor. The Jalapenos have a bit of heat but are also a bit sweet from roasting. Looking for a great appeitizer give these a try! I left the full recipe at the end of the post. For dessert/snack later while watching Monday Night Football a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated Dutch Smoked Gouda
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
6 large jalapeno peppers
1/4 Pound Ground Turkey (99% Lean)
Sea Salt, Parsley, Roasted Ground Cumin, Ground Black Pepper; to taste
6 strips bacon, uncooked


1)Preheat the broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2) Brown Ground Turkey until no longer pink. Season with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Roasted Ground Cumin, and Parsley.

3) In a small bowl, mix together the Ground Turkey, Gouda Cheese and Cilantro.

4) Using a paring knife, cut off the top of the peppers and reserve. Scoop out the veins and the seeds, discarding both. Stuff the cheese mixture inside the peppers, packing it tightly. Replace the cap on each pepper, secure with a toothpick if needed. Wrap the slice of bacon, top to bottom, around each pepper, covering the cap, and secure with a toothpick. Put the peppers on the baking sheet. broil, turning occasionally, until the bacon is crisp and the peppers are tender, about 20 minutes total. Transfer to a serving platter and serve.
