Anyone got a good ground turkey recipe I haven't tried?

Asked by marinelife (62450points) April 29th, 2010

I am making ground turkey for dinner tonight.

I usually use it in a Mexican casserole, chili, chop suey/stir fry, or ground turkey meatballs.

Tonight, I am out of ideas, and I want something different.

How do you prepare it?

I always prepare what we call “Turkeyaki.” I brown the turkey with teriyaki sauce and break it into really small granular bits. Then add spinach and serve over rice. Love it!

Add red pepper flakes, fennel, salt, pepper, Italian spices and binder ( use powdered milk or egg or bread crumbs). Make into patties. Fry in olive oil. YUMMY

Both turkey gumbo, and turkey tetrazzini can be made with ground turkey as well as from cubes, just make turkey meat balls first, then plunk them in.

These are all from my favorite low carb healthy Spark Recipes where you can find many, many more.

Make turkey burgers, put it in baked ziti or lasagna, fajitas. Use it with any recipe that would call for ground beef

Thanks for all the ideas, guys. They are going into the arsenal of recipes.

There was a recipe on Spark Recipes (thanks for that link @Yarnlady) for Asian meatballs that almost had me.

We ended up doing a stir fry, because when I looked in the frig, all the veggies looked so good to me.
