Experimenting with Pennsylvania Dutch BBQ

When I read Margo’s recipe for "barbeque", I too had been snowed in for a week and was in need of comfort food using only ingredients I had on hand. I mean, I couldn’t very well go to the store with an unplowed street and about 3 feet of snow on the ground. As soon as I read her recipe, I knew I would make it. I had a package of ground turkey in the fridge (leftover from our aborted Super Bowl party) and a lot of onions.

She doesn’t lie. The recipe is delicious and comforting and makes your house smell wonderful. I made the recipe as she posted it (except for substituting ground turkey for ground beef) on Thursday and served it with a carrot salad. Then tonight I mixed the leftover meat with some rice (leftover from another meal) and stuffed it into bell peppers and baked them. It was delicious that way too.

If you’re looking for a yummy, homey meal, give Margo’s recipe a try.


  1. so glad you liked it! It is comfort food and pantry food, as you rightly pointed out.

    Your idea for leftovers is brilliant too. I could easily double the recipe for planned leftovers.

  2. Thanks for the good idea- sounds delish.


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
