Phase 3 Main Dish Recipes



Phase 3 recipes use ingredients that should only be eaten occasionally or rarely, if at all.

Most of the turkey recipes I have are on the Phase 1 Main Dish page or the Crock Pot and Soup pages.



Turkey a la King Shortcake


This recipe uses butter and flour for thickening, so if you’re a strict low GI dieter, you might not want to make this, or try a substitute for the flour for thickening. I always served it over hot biscuits. On a low GI diet, the biscuits should be made with whole wheat flour or it could be served over 100% whole wheat toast.


1/2 to 1 cup diced mushrooms

¼ cup chopped green pepper

¼ cup (4 tablespoons) butter or margarine

3 tablespoons flour

1 beaten egg yolk

2 to 2 1/2 cups diced, cooked turkey

2-ounce jar chopped pimento

2 cups milk

Salt and pepper to taste (I use 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)


Sauté mushrooms and green pepper in butter until mushrooms are lightly browned. Add flour and blend. Add milk and seasonings. Cook until thick, stirring constantly.


Beat egg yolk in a small bowl. Mix some of hot mixture into egg yolk, and add to remaining hot mixture. Continue cooking until thick, stirring constantly. Add turkey and pimento. Six servings.



Omit mushrooms and increase green pepper to ½ cup.

Use less butter (3 tablespoons).

To reduce calories and fat, and still be "creamy," try skim milk mixed with fat-free half & half.


MizFrog’s note: This is an old and good recipe, given to me by my high school home economics teacher. It’s one of the best ways to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey—I’ve made it after almost every Thanksgiving for many years. I also make it occasionally at other times.
