For this coming Thankgiving dinner, I will be preparing a different style of turkey recipe, Baked Golden Topped Turkey & Hampie.

There is a wide choice of meat to choose for preparing Thanksgiving dinner; lamb, beef, seafood, chicken, pork and turkey.

Chicken Keels

Turkey Substitute ?

  • Although turkey is the main ingredient during Thanksgiving, most people prefer to cook either chicken or beef depending on which meat is available in the market.
  • Frankly speaking, turkey and chicken are both excellent choices for Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Chicken meat cooks easily than turkey but the latter taste better.
  • Beef may take a longer time to cook and it is wise to pound the tendons before cooking. Otherwise your guest will have a hard time to chew them off.
  • However, I prefer to use the traditional turkey as it is low in fat but high in protein, an excellent diet for weight watchers.

Don't Panic. Here's Your Cooked Turkey

How much is enough?

When you are preparing turkey, remember to remove the skin and excess fats as they are high in fat content.

This Golden topped Turkey and Hampie requires 240g of cooked turkey which means each person could consume at least 60g of turkey, sufficient if you are watching your weight.

This turkey dish is simply easy to prepare and easy to please your family members appetite.

I am sure this turkey meal will give you less workload, nutritious meal for the whole family and mouth-watering dish at first sight.

Why I bought Pyrex brand?

1. China made dish will crack if you put into an microwave oven and has foul odor. Hence, I chose Pyrex, a well known culinary brand for shallow dish, fit for microwave oven .

2. I like the see through dish so that I could watch the turkey / chicken meat turn color, whether any liquid overflows.

3. It has thick lid, not heavy and well fitted to the dish, not excess vapor escape from the dish.

Step 5

Grease the shallow dish

  • Pour in the turkey and ham sauce.

  • Slice the cooked potatoes and arrange over the top.
  • Beat the egg and remaining 2 tbsp of milk together and brush over the surface of the potatoes to glaze them.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown.
  • Serve sprinkled with a little chopped fresh parsley.

Looks delicious! I was going to write that I have never heard of Hampie, but maybe, after reading, it is Ham pie? Either way, looks great. Thanks for sharing.

Up and more

I used to be a lot stricter. My kids both get A's and B's with out me puihsng them. We work together on home work and most things come pretty easy to them. I used to be pretty hard on my son when he would come home with a B or even a C on a paper when it was something I knew he could do better at and he just didn't follow directions or finish the assignment. Then last March he was diagnosed with ADHD and Aspergers. So although he was capable of the work he couldn't focus to the extent he needed to to get the higher grades. So I am more understanding now but I still encourage him and I do believe he is doing his best.

What a beautiful and delicious idea. Now my mouth is watering for turkey!

My son only just started JK so my epxictateon is that he puts his best foot forward, try's new things and establishes good communication with his peers. Grades are obviously not a part of the program at this point, but i'm confident he will do well from grade's one and up. As for behaviour we as parents lead by example so showing our children that being good to others, sharing in your family household and being a genrally positive good person in public will emanate through the school years as well.

I never heard of "hampie", but the recipe look really good. You may want to consider converting grams so folks like me know the amount to use in your recipe. I would have no idea how many potatoes would equal 720 grams. Just a thought......

So "hampie" is a mixture of turkey and ham. Nice combination! I have a turkey roasting in the oven right now and also have some ham. This sounds like a good combination dish with the potatoes and peas. Could easily substitute other veggies or even add some cheese to this. You now have me thinking! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
