I never shy away from a mealtime shortcut, which is why I’m really excited about this new quick protein option available in Heinen’s Meat Department! The Great American Turkey Company’s line of turkey products includes fresh, marinated turkey breast strips that can be prepared in about five minutes. With so much of the prep work done for you, meals come together in no time. I’m using the Olive Oil & Herbs turkey breast strips to make quick and healthy Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. In addition to being seriously delicious, this recipe calls for just five ingredients and is on the table in 30 minutes!

Turkey is not just for Thanksgiving! There are so many ways to incorporate this healthy poultry option into weeknight meals, especially with these recipe-ready products. Heinen’s currently carries three varieties of The Great American Turkey Company turkey breast strips – Smokey & Sweet, Tomato & Basil, and Olive Oil & Herbs. Look for them near the other fresh turkey products.
