I scored some cheap Turkey Breast Fillets at the shops last week.  We love turkey in this house, turkey burgers being a real favorite.  You often see turkey steaks or turkey chunks, but I have only ever very rarely seen Turkey Breast Fillets, so I did what any turkey lover would do.  I bought them.  I froze one and then used the other one to make this delicious casserole!

It makes just enough for two individual casseroles.

It's low in fat and filled with fiber and just loaded with flavour!  It's also diabetic friendly.

 One serving comes in at just over 300 calories also, so it makes for a delicious supper for anyone who is watching their waistline.  All you need on the side is a nice salad.

Turkey breast, stuffing and a delicious low fat gravy.  What more could you ask for?  Easily multiplied to serve more than two also.
