I like using ground turkey for tacos, chilis, sometimes burgers and meatloaf. I don't think it smells weird at all and I think it has a nice flavor and texture.

Yes, I made a turkey & pork, loaf to which I added cheese, red bell peppers, onions, garlic (...more) and it was really fabulous. One of the best loaves I ever made. Not totally sure if it was the turkey or the cheese that made the dish, though. Using it in place of a fattier meat is the way to go. It binds better than beef, too!

Thumbs up It's a great, light substitute for ground beef

I use it all the time in my favorite light chili recipe.

Since my husband isn't a red-meat eater, I've been buying ground turkey & ground turkey products for at least 21 years. Use it for anything & everything I'd use ground beef for. Fabulous stuff, & very versatile. I rarely if ever buy the ground breast though, as I find it a tad on the dry side - stick to the regular ground, which is a mixture of white & dark meat. Am also a big fan of the many different varieties/flavors of turkey (& chicken) sausages available these days as well. And turkey ham, pepperoni, etc. The variety of healthy low-fat turkey products now available is outstanding.

use it a lot. sometimes for friends who don't eat red meat, and sometimes just because I like it and it works well in a recipe.

I don't use it often, but I have used it in chili and spaghetti sauce with great success.

I have a friend that doesn't eat beef, so I made my regular meat ball recipe (I usually use beef, pork and veal) and substituted all ground turkey, the meatballs were fantastic, I was quite surprised. It is nice to know that I have options when making the meatball recipe!

I used to use it for everything. I like it a lot better then beef actually. But we moved overseas almost two years ago and you can not find turkey here what so ever. I use ground lamb now instead of beef.
