Replacing with Ground Turkey

When replacing ground beef in a recipe with ground turkey, does the temp or cook time need to change?

Thank you

Nope. You cook it the same way as you would the ground beef.

Only thing I would suggest is adding a little olive oil to your pan when you brown the meat as it has a very low fat content.

Depending on the particular type of turkey you buy, ground sirloin may actually be healthier. It has fewer calories, nearly half the fat, and less cholesterol. That's because regular old ground turkey contains dark meat, which is fattier. If you do go with turkey, make sure it's turkey breast or at least turkey white meat. Otherwise just go for the ground sirloin (96/4).

FWIW, while I wouldn't make a 100% ground sirloin burger, I use it regularly in dishes that are slow cooked and/or contain a lot of spices, like chili and tacos.
