Mushroom Melt Skillet

In a pinch for dinner last week, I added a new twist to a family favorite....

and, it was a hit!

It kind of reminded me of those hamburger box meals... but much better.  I used ground turkey, loaded up on the mushrooms, and paired it with brown rice to make this dish healthier.  And... it's gluten-free too!

Mushroom Melt Skillet - SnoWhite

1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 T minced onion
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4-1 C mozzarella cheese, grated
2 C brown rice

Prepare rice using a rice cooker, or according to package directions.  Make as much/little rice as you desire -- we like ~2-3 C prepared for this dish.

In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey with onions and garlic until cooked.  Season with salt and pepper, if desired.  {I used ground turkey from the freezer that was already browned!}

Then, add the mushrooms to the skillet and saute until softened.

Sprinkle cheese over the top, and cover to allow cheese to melt.

Serve over brown rice.
