Ground turkey is a wonderful addition to a healthy eating program. For many who are ground beef fanatics, this might be a big adjustment. Here are a few of my flavor tips:
- Extra Lean is the lowest fat because it is the turkey breast ground up and it tastes MUCH better when covered in sauce like in spaghetti, sloppy joes, or goulash.
- Lean is the more available option and works great for turkey burgers, turkey meatloaf, or a pizza topper.
- Half & Half is my own concoction where I buy one each of Lean & Extra Lean then cut them in half and swap one half with one of the other. I use the combo for most of my meals unless I am strictly cutting fat, then use only Extra Lean. I use only Lean when making my famous Free Day Lasagna.
I hope everyone knows that one pre-packaged container of either type ground turkey is approximately 1.25 pounds and will serve 4-5.
