Picture your typical family brunch, what do you see? What favourite foods are part of the spread? Are there any turkey dishes? Here’s why I’m asking: turkey isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when you think of breakfast and brunch recipes, but I want to expand your options, because turkey is a perfect choice and offers endless possibilities.
Unless of course, you’re already a fan of turkey bacon and turkey sausage, then you already know both happen to be delicious brunch offerings!
Even though turkey may not be what pops into most people’s heads when they’re planning for a family breakfast or brunch, it should definitely be on the list.
It comes naturally to think of turkey as a healthy protein for lunch, snacking, dinner, and of course, Thanksgiving! In fact, it’s one of our family’s go-to foods for its flavour, which can work so well in a wide variety of dishes, and its impressive nutritional content. Which is why it’s also such a great choice for mornings as well – and not just the turkey bacon and turkey sausage. I have a delicious Turkey Quiche recipe that features Lilydale Oven Roasted Turkey Breast and I’m telling you, it’ll knock your socks off!
Before we dive into this scrumptious quiche, did you know Lilydale has been providing nutritious and delicious, high-quality Canadian poultry products to Canadians for 75 years! For our family, they’ve been a staple for as far back as I can remember. And as much as we love their whole turkeys for special occasions, we also enjoy their other poultry products on a weekly basis, incorporating them into our everyday meals, including our family brunches. Lilydale makes creating healthy and delectable recipes easy as can be with offerings such as Breakfast Turkey and Chicken Sausages, Turkey Bacon, Frozen Boxed Turkey Products (like their tasty Ancient Grain Turkey Strips), Oven Roasted Sliced or Carved Turkey and Whole Turkeys, among others.
For this mouth-watering Thanksgiving Turkey Quiche I’m sharing with you today, I used fresh fully cooked and moist Lilydale Oven Roasted Sliced Turkey. It’s the perfect choice for this recipe because it’s so easy to use, you don’t even need to cook it! This is such a delicious Thanksgiving dish but, that being said friends, you can truly enjoy this dish all year round.
The beauty of this recipe is how hearty and flavourful it is. And simple, too! It’s perfect for serving at brunch as a savoury dish that will leave your family and friends wanting a second helping!
