Open Face Turkey Melts

Replacing red meat with any type of ground chicken or turkey in this house is nearly impossible.  Hubs just looks at it and gives me the death stare, “How dare you try to trick me in such an evil way!?”  So for dinner this night there was no trickery, just up front honesty and some pleading to “Just try it, please!”

It turned out to be pretty darn yummy.  I really enjoyed it!  Hubs probably wouldn’t ask for it again, but he ate the whole thing, so I guess it was at least edible. :0)
