Question Ground Turkey...

I was wondering if anyone has any good recipes for ground turkey. I normally just put some chili beans and hot sauce, chili powder, ground red pepper and then call it a day. I was wondering if you guys have done something different with ground turkey. I am going to make it up tonight for dinner. Thanks in advance.


Chris

Re: Ground Turkey...

meatloaf

instead of breadcrumbs, I suppose you could use almond meal if you are paleo, or perhaps flax meal

other than that it's the the meat, veggies, tomato sauce, and sometimes cheese (parmesan) but you can leave it out if you want.

Also try making meatballs from it, or turkey burgers.

Re: Ground Turkey...

I love ground turkey!

Meatloaf is easy and makes versatile leftovers. I've done a Honey-Mustard meatloaf recipe with turkey and it's been really good. I apparently haven't posted it on my recipe journal, but I do have a recipe for Turkey Salsa Meatloaf:
http://www.delicat.ca/cookbook/index...alsa-meatloaf/ (wfs)

I've also used ground turkey as a substitute for ground pork my Ma Po Tofu recipe:
http://www.delicat.ca/cookbook/index.php/ma-po-tofu/ (wfs)

I'm not sure how the added ingredients in a recipe affect zone blocks, etc. - but I consider these recipes Zone-ish, or could at least be slightly modified to be Zone- friendly.

I have a can of Manwich at home I've been wanting to mix into some ground turkey, but I have no idea what to sub for the buns - cauliflower?

Re: Ground Turkey...

How adventurous are you? Are you a Meatloaf person, or a I'll try anything at least once person.


SMOKED TURKEY PATE

1 c. diced cooked turkey
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1-2 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. softened butter
3/4 tsp. liquid smoke
2 tbsp. Cognac or brandy
Crackers of your choice or raw apple and vegetable slices

In blender or food processor with steel blade, combine and process turkey and walnuts until finely chopped. Add butter, butter, liquid smoke and liqueur; process until a smooth paste is formed. Add mayonnaise until of desired consistency. Spoon into small bowl or crock; cover and refrigerate several hours. Serve with crackers and/or apple and vegetable slices.

Agree with Jason, any outdoor / camping store, butcher, grocery store, etc.
Google it, then you'll recognize it next time. I'm not sure it's the healthiest stuff, as I've not used it yet, but plan to pick some up this weekend.

At some point, I'm going to get a smoker, and then I'm really off to the races.

Re: Ground Turkey...

My girlfriend showed me this awsome taco salad, ground turkey, recipet that only takes about 15 minutes to prepare.

ingredients:
ground turkey
Chachies Salsa(medium or hot); usuall found near the deli of publix or your local super market
1 packet of taco seasoning( or just season the ground turkey however you like)
1 head of Romane lettuce
some nacho chips if you really want to get the whole experience( tostidos Multigrain are good)

prepare:

cook the ground turkey, poor the packet of taco seasoning or season the ground turkey to your liking, then poor the fresh Salsa on the ground turkey bring to a lite boil then let sit for 5mins. Chop the romaine lettuce up put into bowl and cover the romaine with the ground turky mixture, then if you want crush up some nacho chips and put those in, then stir! and your finished!

I'd check in the section where things like HP sauces and Worcestershire sauces are. As to the price I really can't say as it's been a long time since I bought a bottle but it won't be very expensive.
