But why should lunch and dinner have all the fun? Add an over easy egg on top to turn this recipe into your breakfast for the week.

I typically use 93% fat free ground turkey so the turkey still has a little fat for flavor, but if you’re on a more strict diet, feel free to use 99% fat free for this recipe.

This whole meal takes a little over an hour to make, but I still put this under my Easy Weeknight Meals section because you only spend about 10 minutes at the stove cooking the turkey. The rest is baking time for the rice. Easy peasy!

Lastly, I love adding all sorts of fun toppings to this meal, avocado, limes, tortilla strips and more! The choice is yours.
