Turkey can be part of breakfast, lunch or dinner, the National Turkey Federation says.
Cut 10 slices of smoked turkey bacon into pieces, and saute in a skillet with eggs, green peppers and chopped onions. Remove the skillet from the burner and stir in cheddar cheese. Then place the turkey bacon, egg and cheese mixture on tortillas and microwave for two minutes. Drizzle salsa over the burritos and serve hot.
How does this recipe sound for breakfast?
Or even dinner?
The National Turkey Federation (NTF) hopes the concoction – anchored by turkey bacon – to sound delectable. That’s why NTF lists the recipe along with many others on its website, www.eatturkey.com. The organization aims to communicate the versatility of turkey bacon, not to mention its health aspect.
Turkey bacon has been on the market since the early 1990s and has been billed as a better-for-you alternative. Its growth in consumption has been anchored around the product’s healthy nutrition profile, according to NTF.
