  • My kids love Funeral potatoes (or boyscout potatoes). They take sourcream, cheese and potatoes..
    Tator Tot casserole is something you could make with what you have. You'd need cream of mushroom or celery soup.

  • OOO you could do one of my favorite dishes (but modified)
    I dunno what its called exactly but my family loves its almost like a taco salad but no lettuce
    Brown the ground turkey w/ some taco like seasonings (I usually use seasoning salt, paprika, and a pinch of cayanee since we like it spicy and a little cumin)
    Get a huge plate with your corn tortillas put the meat on top, then baked potato chunks finally the meat corn (which every you prefer) and salsa
    Its fast its filling and fun because the whole family can share a plate.

    Otherwise a modified sheperds pie??? I don't have the recipie for that off hand but I think you have enough items to make it...

  • with the ground turkey, celery, corn and potatoes you could probably make a shepards pie
    fry the corn tortilla top with a fried egg top it with salsa and you have huevos rancheros, usually a breakfast dish but you could eat it for dinner
    make a breakfast burrito with the ground turkey eggs salsa use the cottage cheese as a sour cream substitute
    I dont know how much turkey you have, but those are ideas with it
    if you could get a can of chili you could make a tater tot casserole.
