Reasons to love ground turkey

Ground turkey is one of my go-to meats to cook with, especially for lightened up comfort foods. You’ll love using it in recipes because it’s:

  • Packed with lean protein
  • Super versatile and the perfect swap for beef (if you’re looking to cut down on red meat)
  • Easy to cook with and season to make your fav recipes

I separated these ground turkey recipes into chilis & soups, meatballs & meatloaves, burgers, patties & sandwiches, delicious pasta recipes and fun comfort foods that are perfect for feeding the whole family or meal prepping. Pair them with amazing side dishes and enjoy!
