ISO Ground Turkey Ideas

What else can I do with it? Other than meatloaf, meatballs and tacos?

First off, use the search function on this site for "ground turkey". There was a thread on this exact same topic just a couple of weeks ago.

Other than that, you can use ground turkey in any & every recipe calling for any other ground meat (beef, pork, veal, lamb, etc.).

Two word searches just donít seem to work here. Searching on ground turkey can turn up ground black pepper as well as Turkey Pot Pie.

I did find a recent thread on ground turkey, but there isnít much to it.

Here's the link to the very recent thread on ground turkey. Came up right away. Not that there's any real difference in the answers. The bottom line still is that you can do anything with ground turkey that you'd do with any other ground meat. I don't think the OP expects us to list every recipe on the planet that uses ground meat, does she?

I was just looking for some new ideas/recipes that maybe someone had and liked. I'm new and was looking to start some conversations with some of the seemingly nice and fun people around here!

Hey, Nancy. You just got flooded with some turkeys.

Seriously, though, ground turkey is great to have on hand. Sometimes I'll mix a little with my meatloaf mixture to stretch the ground beef and reduce the fat content.

You could also brown it up with some onions and garlic, mix it with some pasta sauce and use it for a "mock" lasagna.

Ground turkey is as versatile as ground beef and less expensive per pound...and healthier. What's not to like?! Yeah!

Exactly, Katie. I have a little baby boy with some serious food allergies. We're doing okay... but he LOVES meat! I am trying to always have chicken, turkey, ham steaks, things to make for him. Of course my 4 year old daughter won't touch meat.... HA! Anyway, I try to stay away from too much beef, so I keep a pack of ground turkey around. He likes it just sauteed in the pan with some s&p, garlic powder, onion salt.. .just plain. I have also let him have it in tomato/marinara sauce.. (on bath nights only!) So tonight, I did a little up for him and did the rest with some taco seasoning (which I have a great recipe for if anyone is interested.. to avoid the packets with all the junk in them,) and had the soft tacos in a whole wheat wrap for us. Sooooo... I saw this neat thread about what ingredients you had, what would you do, and I thought it would be neat to get some ideas for simple ground turkey things my little boy could have. And yes... I know that ground turkey can be substituted for other ground meats... um yeah. THANKS!

Hey my mom used to make stuffed peppers.. hated them!! Wonder if I would like them now, now that I'm older? That's the pepper with ground meat/rice mixture in the center, huh? Maybe I'll try them.

Chili!!! Forgot an obvious one, thanks Unc. Bob!
