A simple fuss-free, flavorful, one-pot dish made with ground turkey, chopped potatoes, and fresh dill. This is a really basic, everyday weeknight recipe – no-frills, just dills. 😁
Ground Turkey and Potatoes
One-pot recipes (like this and this) are a regular thing here at my house. We usually have some type of protein in the fridge, potatoes in the pantry, and well, when it comes to fresh herbs – it sort of just depends.
Cilantro basically lives here – a full-time resident. Mint is a regular, knows its way around the kitchen. Parsley typically has to request an invite. Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme are always welcome but usually have plans of their own. And Dill? To be totally honest… we sort of forget about Dill until we don’t, you know? It’s just that Dill can be a lot – you need to be in the mood to hang with Dill. 🤷🏽♀️
Well, it turns out our friends Serrano and Garlic loooove Dill. They think Dill’s the real dill – the life of the party. Never a dill moment when the three of them are together. 😉
Do that and you’re in for one dill-lightful dish! Enjoy!
