  • olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoons dried thyme

  • 1 cups sliced sweet peppers
  • 2 cups sliced green bell peppers
  • 8 oz sliced baby bella mushrooms

    Swirl olive oil in cast iron over medium heat - add turkey. Add in salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dried thyme, and worcestershire sauce - cook until cooked through.

  • Step 2

    Remove meat from pan, keeping all juices. Swirl olive oil (adding to existing juices), add in onions and sprinkle a bit of salt. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
