Today’s Menu: Velveeta Cheesy Turkey Mac w/ Harvest Grain BreadVelveeta Turkey Mac 006

 

 

 

Want an easy, filling, comfort dinner tonight, I have one for you and it’s one those pot meals! Easy to make and easy to clean up. It’s the Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac, But mine is Turkey Mac. Using Ground turkey its a little healthier and less calories and carbs. So for dinner tonight I prepared Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Turkey and Cheese Mac with Harvest Grain Bread.

 

 

I used Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac. The dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 2 cups of water, the seasoning and pasta. Simmer for 11 – 13 minutes and add the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 350 calories and 27 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above. I also warmed up a small loaf of Kroger Bakery Harvest Grain Bread and topped the slices with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. This makes one hearty and tasty meal! They have different varieties of the Velveeta Skillets, I’ve tried 3 different ones and they are all delicious! For a dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time pop Corn.
