The first thing Bossy wants you to know is she is brand loyal. Since the beginning of time, or at least back in the age of dinosaurs when Bossy joined time, the Bossy family has been purchasing Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise. Even if this is the first time Bossy noticed the two Ns in Hellmann’s®.
In Bossy’s opinion, the world doesn’t manufacture any other brand of mayonnaise, although Bossy seems to recall white bottled stuff sold as salad dressing and having something to do with a whip.
The next thing Bossy wants you to know is she’s not really a cooking with mayonnaise type girl. This means Bossy typically prepares meals utilizing simple, fresh ingredients as close to the natural food source as possible.
Except when she doesn’t.
The simple fact is we all have recipes in our arsenal that utilize ingredients such as mayonnaise — and the only thing that differentiates these recipes from the others is that they are — how can Bossy put this — delicious.
Anyone who turns their nose up at cooking with mayonnaise has never participated in a little thing Bossy likes to call Thanksgiving and the many family-spun, comforting recipes such as Bossy’s Baked Mayonnaise With Broccoli.
Not to mention the problem of what to do with the turkey leftovers. It was Bossy’s brand loyalty that made Bossy throw her hand in the air when her friends at Hellmann’s were looking for people to prepare and review one of their many quick and easy recipes — this one for Creamy Baked Turkey — designed specifically for turkey leftovers during the busy holiday season. And guess who also makes delicious turkey recipes with Hellmann’s®?
Except Bossy wants to let you in on a little secret, just between you and Bossy: Bossy completely forgot this recipe review was due until thirty-five minutes before the deadline, which is how Bossy found herself breathless in the grocery store mid-morning, racing around purchasing the ingredients to make her casserole. So the following truly proves just how quick and easy this recipe really is, even for a late muckle of frizz like Bossy.
Shall we? Meet the ingredients:
The first thing Bossy did was preheat her oven to 400 degrees:
Next, Bossy made crumbs out of a half-cup of crackers:
Then Bossy combined the cracker crumbs with four tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese. Except she didn’t need to combine all four tablespoon of grated cheese, she needed to combine only half of that:
Next, in a separate bowl, Bossy placed 4 ounces of softened cream cheese:
And then Bossy added one half-cup of Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise:
And then that concoction was mixed with a clove of minced garlic, a couple of tablespoons of minced parsley, and the remaining grated parmesan cheese Bossy rescued earlier from the cracker crumbs:
Next Bossy cut 1 pound of boneless, skinless turkey breasts into bite-size pieces:
And then those turkey breast pieces get mixed with the wet ingredients:
Next pour the mixture into the shallow 2-quart casserole dish Bossy doesn’t own. Then sprinkle with the dry ingredients. For those with a memory the size of Bossy’s, that would be: sprinkle with the cracker crumbs and parmesan cheese mixture:
Then it goes into the preheated oven for twenty minutes:
Let’s have a time check, shall we?
This dish made it from the food store into Bossy’s oven in twenty-five minutes. It would have been less if Bossy had actually been prepared to cook and not trying to feed herself the breakfast she hadn’t yet eaten.
So what’s the verdict? Well, Bossy left her Creamy Baked Turkey in the oven longer than the prescribed amount because Bossy likes everything crunchy and golden brown. In her oven that meant thirty-five minutes. Upon completion it had gooey bits and crunchy bits and tender bits, which meets all three of Bossy’s meal standards.
Naturally Bossy ate an enormous portion while typing this right heresjsjdkkdkldlelwl. And only one hour past her deadline!
