Grilled Turkey Patties, Mandarins, and Leftover Casserole

1 pkg ground turkey meat (make 4 patties) I got the 19.2 oz. pkg of lean, all natural, manually processed, no artificial ingredients

Sprinkle patties with:

pepper

oregano

Italian seasoning

Bake in drain pan that comes with Nuwave oven for about 8 minutes (or on pan in conventional oven just so the pan has holes and something under it to catch drippings)

Flip turkey burgers,sprinkle more black pepper, oregano, and Italian seasonings

Add slice of tomato on top of each burger

Bake for about 5-6 minutes

I heated the turnip, apple, green bean, and macaroni dish I had yesterday on plate I was going to eat on tonight (heated in microwave for 2 minutes)

Add burger with tomato and half of the small can of mandarins (drained) to the plate of heated leftovers and enjoy.

It’s not easy to find low potassium low cholesterol things to eat. What is good for one is not good for the other.  LOL  I did enjoy this meal though. Turkey is not considered red meat and is low in potassium and low cholesterol.  (Thank God) I ate one patty tonight and will use the other three for three more meals! (Probably a Taco Soup or veggie soup of some kind, in slow cooker with one of them).

Thanks for viewing my dilemma with this cooking experience.  I only hope I can help anyone else that might be dealing with the issue of having too much potassium and high cholesterol—and myself, too.

I use Nuwave oven, rice cooker, slow cooker, and microwave a lot.  Anything I do in Nuwave can be done in conventional oven but you will need to adjust time.
