Anyone Have a Ground Turkey Recipe?

That isn’t chili or turkey burger?

Hook a brother up, please.

Yes my brother, I get a big pan going warm with some oil, throw in some onion, broccoli and whatever veggies you like. Soften them up a little then dump in your ground turkey. Don’t season everything yet because you will be dumping everything in a strainer once the turkey is cooked to drain the fat. Once you strain it (veggies and beef)put it all back in the pan and season it to taste.

I make a large amount and keep it in the frig for days. I eat it out of a bowl with a spoon. I have done this with ground beef also but mostly now with ground turkey or grind my own chicken breast in the processor. Eating small bowls of this throughout the day really does wonders. Easy and GOOD!!! Enjoy.

Turkey Meatloaf:

Preheat oven to 350

In bowl, mix (with hands):
1lb ground turkey
1 1/4 cups salsa
3/4 cups oatmeal
1 carrot shredded
1 can diced tomato
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms

  • Form into loaf, place in baking pan sprayed with Pam.

  • Cook about 1 hr, until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

I didn’t create the recipe, but it comes out awesome and pretty easy to do.

Berardi’s chili recepie is good

Thanks for all the recipes! I’ll give them a whirl over the next week and a half.

Brown it in coconut oil with crushed/diced garlic, onions and cumin seeds

Add ground black pepper, turmeric, other seasonings you like

After it’s done cooking, drizzle some olive oil to moisten it all up again

stuffed peppers

cut a pepper in half the long way and hollow it out

cook the turkey and mix it with some rice and tomato

stuff the pepper, bake

top with cheese, red hot, sour cream (optional)

2 cups ground turkey
2 tblspn olive oil
1 tbspn peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup spicy peanuts
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tspn curry
lots of garlic
red chili powder to taste
1/2cup strong tea (you may need more to keep it moist)

cook the turkey in the tea in a hot cast iron pan

remove the turkey from the pan, keep the juice

heat up olive oil in the pan with the celery, red pepper, onions and peanut butter until the peanut butter has melted and the vegetables are softening but still crunchy.

Add the garlic last because it gets bitter if you burn or overcook garlic
add chicken to the mix and the hot and spicy peanuts

this is great over spinach, or spaghetti squash or just about anything

if you don’t like the tea you can substitute chicken stock

Here’s my attempt at an oriental dish…

Brown gound turkey in a tiny bit of Coconut oil. I season it with some salt, pepper, and red chilli flakes.

While turkey is browning, put chopped red and green peppers in another pan and cook them down a little. You still want some crunch. You can add onion to that as well or some cabbage.

I then drizzle some oriental flavored dressing on it for taste. Use it or don’t depending if you’re dieting.

Once the turkey is brown, drain and add to the peppers.

From there you can dish it or add some cooked noodles, or whatever. It has a decent taste.

Spagetti Bolognise with turkey mince rather than beef!

check out the “la cucina anabolica” thread. there is a stuffed pepper recipe that i have made a few times that is great with ground turkey or beef.

One of my most common meals:

Ground turkey
Egg whites
Onions
Garlic
Chick peas
East Indian spices
Topped with goat cheese
