  • Ground Turkey

    I have several pounds of ground turkey in my deep freeze I need to use up (I don't even like the stuff much anymore since I've become accustomed to fattier meats but I hate to waste any meat) and am at a loss on what to do with it. Does anyone have any suggestions or interesting turkey burger recipes?

    turkey burgers with a little fat mixed in (bacon, cheese, etc.) with the meat might be great. but, don't think it has to be burgers only. one of my favorite thing to do with ground meat is mix it into scrambled eggs or use it as a culinary accessory to some other the filling to stuffed peppers or zucchini or something. if you can add flavors and fat, you can make ground turkey taste delicious.

      Taco salad! Mix in some fat and chili powder and serve with lettuce and guac. Enough garlic and spice will make any meat taste good.

        I've made the Elana's Pantry turkey meatloaf recipe a few times - it's really easy to make and with a few tweaks to my family's tastes, goes down really well!

        I use 1lb of turkey mince, mixed with 2 large eggs, a cup of chopped parsley, quarter of a cup of thyme, a grated courgette/zucchini, a chopped onion, quarter of a cup of almond flour, a couple of cloves of chopped garlic, a cup of grated matrue cheddar and a finely chopped red chilli (and salt and pepper to taste. I squidge it all together, then put on a sheet of greasproof paper on a baking sheet, mould into a sort of loaf shape and cook at approx. 350 for around an hour. It disappears pretty quickly, and is really good for breakfast as well.

            I'd make a meatza. I've done a couple of turkey meatzas before and they are quite tasty.

              use it as a crust for meatza.
              Often I use ground turkey to soften the blow of expensive if a recipe calls for 2+ pounds of ground beef. I'll use 1lb ground beef, and 1lb ground turkey. At $1/lb, ground turkey is a big help that way.

                Excellent idea, thank you!

                The fam voted for turkey burgers and I try to not use the oven in the summer anyway. Found this on another site, will be making them tonight:

                Green Chili Turkey Burgers
                2 (4 oz.) cans diced green chiles
                1 pound ground turkey
                1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
                ½ cup onion, finely chopped
                2 cloves garlic, crushed
                2 teaspoons cumin
                1 teaspoon chili powder
                1 teaspoon sea salt

                1. In a medium sized bowl mix diced chiles with turkey, cilantro, onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder and salt
                2. Form into burgers and grill
                3. Serve with guacamole in lettuce wraps.

                  i love chili rellenos. Get poblano peppers and rub with oil and broil until skin peels off then put cooked ground meat (seasoned with mexican spices and onion) in them with cheese on top and bake.

                    Don't forget to check the date! I don't know if you buy conventional ground turkey, but I'm sure you've heard about the recall?

                      Make burger patties, coat on both sides with cajun spice, then top with fresh avocado/guacamole when finished

                          Rachel Ray has some good ground turkey recipes. I use it alot actually. Love making taco salads, stuffed peppers, stuffed mushrooms, meat sauce over spaghetti squash. You can make it taste like anything so thats what I like about it...and the price.

                            a small vice, I really really really love to mix in either the old school lipton onion soup powder, or ranch powder into the meat mince, and then turn them into patties.
