This recipe is a twisted version of a recipe my grandmother used to make. She used ground beef, but my family prefers turkey so I substituted the meat, and instead of using plain cream cheese like she used, I kicked my version up and simplified it by using the garlic herb cheese. My family and friends love this so much I usually make a double batch.
