I use ground turkey breast in tacos and chili, but always found the burgers I made with it to be kind of dry. Now I make a meatloaf recipe (turkey breast with an egg, breadcrumbs, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire, and herbs & spices), shape it into burgers, and bake them in the oven. Love them!

I use it in anything I use to use ground beef in and now don't even like the ground beef, prefer the turkey.

Cherish every moment with your loved ones for you never know when it may be your last.

Every little tiny thing a loved one ever does to annoy you, you'll beg for if you ever lose them, so savor even the annoying things.

I made turkey burgers last night, with fresh parsley and sauteed mushrooms. They were really good, I know it seems like something plain, but I like the fact that I am having a cheeseburger!

My kids love a mix of brown rice, ground turkey and salsa.

try mixing dry ranch seasoning mix into the turkey burger and if you want to add a little shredded cheese to the mix it is good also and then grill them on the george forman...super easy and delicious!

I make "loaded sweet potatoes." I bake a sweet potato, pile 2-3 oz. of ground turkey on top of it, then add a 1/4 of an avocado, 2 tablespoons of salsa, and a tablespoon of low-fat cream cheese. It's delicious and only about 300-400 calories, depending on the size of the sweet potato.

I love meatloaf made with ground turkey, or meatballs, or turkey burgers. Or stuffed peppers -- sautee ground turkey with white beans, chopped onion, and marinara sauce and then bake inside bell pepper halves. Sprinkle with cheese before serving. Yummy and great presentation!

I make turkey patties.
It's become one of my go-to meals.

4 oz of ground turkey
1 T of medium salsa
1 T of breadcrumbs

Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray and fry until done all the way through.

Anyone have ground turkey recipes, preferably simple ones. emoticon
