Dear Blessed Leslie;

I am new here. Just registered today! I've been reading over a few of the posts here on the message boards and have come across yours! I want to thank you for taking the time and effort to post the nutritional information along with your recipe! I'm sure it's helpful to everyone who analyze their diets in respect to the amount of Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats and Calories. Including the Exchanges for the Diabetic Readers.
I'm curious though, if you've tried altering this particular recipe by substituting ground Turkey? Probably would lower the saturated fat content. No?
Was just a thought.

Hi Vince and Welcome ! Yes you could certianly use ground turkey or ground chicken if you so desired. I bet It would still taste great! please also remember that 30 g. fat is (before cooking). thanks for the great idea! smile.gif
