Menu Plan Week of October 27th

It was a busy and beautiful fall weekend for our family here in Minnesota.  We spent a lovely afternoon at the apple orchard and jumped in leaves in the front yard while my 11 month old practiced her walking skills. :). I made an apple orchard inspired turkey burger for dinner that was simple and delicious.  Recipe is featured below my menu plan - give it a try this week!  These would be great leftover too.  I love to make double the burgers, grill and freeze the extras.  Defrost and warm in the oven for a quick and easy weeknight dinner!

Sunday - Apple and onion turkey burgers with grilled potato slices and spinach salad

Monday - Pumpkin and Sausage Pasta bake (with GF noodles) from the Real Kids Eat Spinach ebook (so many awesome, healthy fall-inspired recipes!  A great value!)

Tuesday - Chicken stir fry (using leftover chicken from a whole chicken that I baked a couple of weeks ago)

Wednesday - wing it

Thursday - chicken quesadillas (also using the leftover chicken) with guacamole and raw veggies

Friday - Sunday - out

Apple and Onion Turkey Burgers

1 lb ground turkey (I use turkey thigh)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup apple, grated or finely chopped (1 small to medium apple)
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
Pepper to taste

Mix apple, onion, garlic and spices.  Add oil to frying pan.  Fry apple and onion mixture until soft.  Let cool slightly, add to ground turkey and mix together with hands.  Make into 4-5 patties.  Grill  or fry until cooked through.  Serve with Dijon mustard.
