    Looking for some ground turkey reciepes

    I usually eat ground turkey every day, normally just plain, browned in a saute pan, but that is starting to get really old so I'm looking for a way to change up the flavor now and then so I dont keep getting bored with this.

  2. Here are a few ideas...

    Follow a stuffed cabbage recipe and substitute the hamburger for ground turkey... I made a huge pan of it.. all it is, is a head of cabbage, ground turkey, brown rice, pepper and tomato soup. You'll get a handful of great meals out of it, plus it's easy to prepare.. I have a recipe laying around here, if you are interested.

    Also, a pot of turkey chili goes a long way.

    For breakfast, I often mix the turkey in with egg whites and salsa.

    sure thing....i'll take any ground turkey reciepes you have.

  4. 1/4 cup chili powder
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons grill seasoning (recommended: McCormick Montreal Seasoning)
    1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
    2 to 2 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast, 2 packages
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, eyeball it
    1 cup tomato sauce, 1 (8-ounce) can
    1 red bell pepper, 1/4 pepper finely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, divided
    2 tablespoons hot sauce, divided
    1/3 pound, 6-ounce chunk, Cheddar or smoked Cheddar cut into 1/4-inch dice
    2 teaspoons salt, divided
    1 small red onion, thinly sliced
    Coarse black pepper
    1/4 cup curly parsley, a couple of handfuls of leaves, finely chopped
    4 soft burger rolls

    Preheat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine chili powder, cumin and grill seasoning in a small bowl. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1 turn of the pan, to a skillet and half of the turkey. Break up the turkey with the back of a wooded spoon. Season the turkey with half of the spice mixture. Break up and brown turkey a couple of minutes, then add half of the finely chopped onion and cook another couple of minutes. When onions are translucent, add Worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce, adjust seasonings and simmer the chili sauce over low heat until ready to serve.

    While chili sauce is working, make the burgers. Place the remaining turkey in a bowl and add the remaining spice mixture, half of the remaining chopped onions, the 1/4 red bell pepper that's chopped, 2 cloves of chopped garlic and about a tablespoon of hot sauce. Combine the chili burger mixture and incorporate the diced cheese. Form 4 (1-inch thick) patties. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1 turn of the pan, then the burgers. Cook the burgers 6 minutes on each side. Separate burger rolls. Pile chili-cheese burgers on the bun bottoms. Top with scoops of chili sauce and a spoonful of the remaining finely chopped raw onions. Set bun tops in place.

  5. Stuffed Turkey Cabbage

    1 lb. ground turkey
    1 cup cooked brown rice
    1/2 t salt
    1/2 t pepper
    1 egg
    1/2 diced onion
    1 head of cabbage
    1 large can tomato soup

    Boil cabbge for 5 minutes. Take leaves apart & let them sit to cool.
    Combine the ingredients in a bowl, mix well.
    Remove a 1" rib from cabbages leaves (to make rolling easier). Place approx. 2 tablespoons of mixture into each leaf & roll.
    Place in a non-stick cooking casserole dish (or a non-stick sprayed cooking pan).
    Pour tomato soup over top.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 1.5 hours.

    Good stuff!

  6. Hamburger Helper is pretty good. Sorry, but I don't have a recipe on me at the moment.

  7. Turkey tacos are pretty good. I usually put 2 packs of taco seasoning in with a pound of turkey. I like the low carb tortillas with them too.

    Just a heads up though, each pack of seasoning usually has around 40 to 50% of daily amount of sodium.

    I personally do not care for ground turkey. Ground chicken has a lot better flavor IMHO. It can be hard to find but you can request it from the butcher at your local supermarket. I have an old hand-crank meat grinder to dispose of the body parts..... er, uhhh, I mean grind my own chicken boobies.

  9. Ground turkey browned in a pan with habaneros, bell peppers then add to black beans. Add some habanero sauce and it is good.
    As you can tell, I am not much on recipes outside of protein pudding.

  10. I am terrible at giving recipe as I dont track amounts of things when I cook but........last month I made great stuffed peppers from ground turkey breast. I mixed ground turkey breast, brown rice, finely diced onions , a dry pack of ranch dressing mix and some eggbeaters to moisten the mixture. Stuffed into bell peppers and covered with Hunts no sugar added tomato sauce , extra garlic and some shrooms...baked until done and DAMN they were good. I took them to a party at the martial arts school and they devoured them.

  11. Hey bro,
    You can find plenty of ground Turkey up in Canesburg, VA tonight.
