My husband hunts deer so we use ground venison quite often....I would imagine using ground turkey would be similar. Use it in anything and everything that you would usually use beef for. We use venison for chili, soups, spaghetti meat sauce, meatloaf, meatballs, tacos or burritos, hamburger helper, etc.....no wrong way to do it!

tkz...these turkey tips are just what I need. I was just doing bacon and sandwiches.....
This is a delicious Sloppy Joes recipe I make all the time, and almost everyone has these ingredients at hand:
1/2 c. ketchup 1/4 c. water 2 tsp. Worcestershire 1/2 tsp. vinegar 1/2 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. onion powder 1 lb. ground turkey
Combine all the ingredients and simmer on top the stove until the turkey absorbs the barbecue flavors. You can add all kinds of things garlic, peppers, or liquid smoke if you have them, or just eat it as is on bread. Delicious and only about 145 calories per serving.
Jennie-O makes taco seasoned and Italian-seasoned ground turkey too. Just be careful with the fat content.

I just started dieting and I bought ground turkey for the first time. I had a little trouble cooking it because I wasn't used to the color and texture. I made taco meat (just add seasoning packet) it was wonderful! I made a burrito for my husband and he couldn't tell the difference. I told him it was (what he refers to as) "yard-bird", he just shrugged and said it wasn't bad. I plan to substitute ground turkey for ground beef in any recipe.

mix 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 ground beef - do not tell him and see if he says anything

I also make meatloaf with ground turkey. Husband doesn't like it because the color is bland, not dark like beef. But then again he's extremely fussy.

I keep cooked ground turkey in freezer,i thaw it and add salsa to it for taco's or even add the mixture to lettuce cups.I also add it to pasta sauce and serve with zucchini noodles

I second the chili idea. Throw in a can of beans, seasoning, a can of crushed tomatoes, a bay leaf, some water, and cook it down for awhile. Yumm.
Would also be good mixed w/ italian seasoning and reheated in a red marinara sauce, to use with pasta.

I used ground turkey for lunch tossed in with some quinoa and feta cheese.
You could put it in some spaghetti sauce, on top of a salad, in a soup, in a stuffed portabello mushroom cap, spice it up for tacos, so many things!

So I had a pound of fresh lean ground turkey that wasn't going to keep much longer, so I had to cook it up. Now that it is cooked, I don't know what to do with it. I want to use it for dinner tonight, but I don't know how. It made about two cups crumbled.
