Use This Not That: Turkey

We love lean, organic, ground turkey breast.  It is low in fat, it is high in protein and a GREAT alternative to beef (though beef is fine in moderation).  Turkey is affordable as well and can be used to carry MANY flavors in endless recipes!

Turkey is also a nice textural change to chicken and has a mildly different taste.  Turkey is NOT just for Thanksgiving, Easter or Christmas anymore – it’s for every occasion.

Here are some great ways to use turkey in some common recipes:

  • Turkey Bolognese
  • Turkey Burgers
  • Turkey Meatballs
  • BBQ Turkey
  • Turkey Meatloaf
  • Turkey Lettuce Wraps
  • Turkey Tacos
  • Turkey Bacon
  • Turkey Sausage
  • Turkey Dogs

All of these can replace higher fat and higher calorie proteins and is worth a try!
