It has been quite a while since I shared an old recipe from my firehouse days. I say “old” because in November I will have been retired from the fire service for nine years. There were some meals that were easy to prepare, but quite tasty. This meal was called “turkey melts and tater tots.” I will let you determine the amount that you buy based upon the number of people that you will be serving. You can add to or take away from this meal.

Grocery list
English muffins
Shaved turkey breast
Sliced provolone cheese
Green peppers
Vidalia onions
Thousand Island dressing
Frozen tater tots

Preparing the meal
Turn on the oven broiler.
Fork split the English muffins, placing the halves on a cookie sheet.
Place a heap of sliced turkey on the muffin half.
Place a slice of provolone on the sliced turkey.
Place the English muffins in the oven, watching them closely. Make sure that the rack is about half way in the oven. They are done when the cheese just begins to brown.
Saute the green peppers and onions in a frying pan until the veggies are soft.
Once done, place the muffins on a plate, add the green peppers and onions and top it off with the Thousand Island dressing.
The tater tots will need to be poured out onto another cookie sheet. Follow the directions on the bag for cooking. You can get creative and add cheddar cheese and spices if you would like.

For dessert
Mix one can of any frozen fruit juice with Borden’s fat free cream (green can). Pour the mix into a graham cracker pie crust and put it in the freezer.
