1/2 pound extra-wide egg noodles
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 slices bacon or turkey bacon, chopped
1 package (about 1 1/3 pounds) ground turkey breast
1 pound white mushrooms, wiped, trimmed, and sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons ground thyme or poultry seasoning
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken stock or broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
2 cups grated Gruyere cheese (about an 8-ounce brick) or other cheese of your preference
1 cup plain bread crumbs
2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Green tossed salad
Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the egg noodles. When it boils, salt the water and cook the noodles al dente. Drain well and return to the pot.
Preheat the broiler to high. Combine the noodles with the turkey and sauce.
I made today's meal for lunch because I am going to Green Bay this evening for some shopping and a concert: just to treat myself to a little me-time. I think I will eat out tonight.
I used the wide egg noodles instead of extra-wide because I had them left over from the Goulash. I used turkey bacon for this recipe because I had some left over from the Goulash, too. I sliced my own mushrooms, but if you can get them sliced for the same price, I would recommend it. I used poultry seasoning, since I couldn't find the (very expensive) ground thyme that I just bought. Maybe I'll take it back, since I haven't seen any other recipes that call for that. (When I find it, that is.) I cut the amount of butter back from 2 to 1 tablespoon. I don't think I even used that much. I could not find Gruyere cheese, but I found baby Swiss and it was very good. I think you could use any kind of cheese on this and it would be good. The only thing I changed about her recipe was to add the salad to the ingredient list. She sometimes puts the side dish above the ingredients, so I forget about it.
This recipe is so good! I especially like the combination of the thyme, white wine, and cream. It's really tasty.
