Reheat meat without drying it out!

This is a great trick to use during the holidays!

Make sure the water in the pot is not high enough to come into the bottom of the colander. Place the meat you are reheating into the colander - don't overfill it. Continued...

Ground Hamburger/Turke
y
dinner time saver

Weeknights I don't have a lot of time for meal preparation. I purchase a LARGE quantity of ground beef and/or turkey. I take it home and I separate it into 1# 'portions.' (1 lb. works for my family of 4.) I lay out one paper plate covered with paper towels for each portion I have. (The paper plates & towels absorb fat) I brown 1# at a time seasoning it, drain it in a colander in my sink (run hot water!), put it on the plate and when it's cool, I freeze each portion in a quart ziplock.

Substitue half of the sandwich for salad

I found that eating half a sandwich with a salad at lunch is just as filling as eating a whole sandwich. Now I am saving extra calories by doing so and having a healthier lunch!

Tasty way to Cut Calories and Fat

Switching this simple meat will help you lose weight and cut out fat..I have taken all recipes that call for ground beef and substituted it for ground chicken, or turkey, and some times ground pork, you really can't taste the difference. emoticon

Crisp Turkey with Cooking Spray!

Instead of smearing the suggested cooking oil all over the turkey - reach for cooking spray (like Pam) and spray the Turkey down for less calories AND perfect crisp skin!
