Confetti Turkey Pocket
By joyce E. from St. Peter Catholic School, Schulte, Kansas.
Confetti Turkey is a festive and colorful dish that harkens memories of fall feasts of rich and plentiful orange vegetables. Based on a pocket bread or German bierock type of sandwich it is made with a 51% whole grain bread dough wrapped around a turkey, sweet potato, carrot and butternut squash filling.
This very unique recipe is packed with nutrition and can meet the bar for two servings of grains, one serving of meat, and one serving of orange vegetable while being low in salt and fat. With the inclusion of brown sugar along with the sweet vegetables this main dish has a high palatability factor for school age children and makes a great dish to serve as a Thanksgiving or festive holiday meal.
