Roast/bake: turkey, potato, rosemary, onion, and bell peppers

This is quick and easy with ground turkey, or you can take all day with a whole bird.

For your protein, veggies, and carbs, we’ve selected the combination of turkey, bell peppers, and potato. Add flavor and character to the meal with rosemary and onion.

It’s up to you whether you want to throw everything together into a single dish or whether you want to separate them into a main course and one or more side dishes. But to make things more challenging, roast/bake at least one of the dishes.
