"This is one of my 'experiments'," says Regina Davis of Griffin, Georgia. "I came up with it when trying to figure out a new taste for ground turkey, since we eat a lot of it. But I didn't want to run to the grocery store, so I used ingredients I had on hand. It's now one of our family's favorites."
