I bought this ground turkey last week in preparation for making meatloaf, but now that the warm weather has really set in, I can't even bring myself to think about meatloaf <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> So now I have 1.3 pounds of ground turkey breast that must be used today, or I'll lose it.<br><br>
Suggestions?

Turkey burgers? I make them using a meatloaf-like recipe (bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic, chopped green onion,maybe some peppers, etc.). Form into patties, grill, top with a slice of tomato, some baby greens, and put on a bun.

We make chili or goulash or my favorite--dirty turkey. That's my own term for turkey sloppy joes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Ah, how did I not think of tacos? My picky older DD only just starting eating them recently, and that's perfect for today. Still a little bit of stovework, but a relatively cool meal. The girls love putting their own topping on, and I'll get to test-drive my new aprons <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Thank you all, mamas, great ideas! I think I may actually make myself a turkey burger, because the more I think about it, the better it sounds, and the girls don't like burgers much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

For the most part, you can do anything with ground turkey that you can do with ground beef. Last night I made a mexican casserole with ground turkey. Tasted the same to me. I've even done Lasagnas and other casseroles with it.

turkey burgers:<br>
1 lb (very roughly!) ground turkey<br>
1 egg<br>
1 grated apple (include skin)<br>
1 grated zucchini (or cooked grated carrot), about the same amount as the apple<br>
about a cup of whatever leftover whole grain you have (brown rice, quinoa, etc)<br>
thyme and marjoram<br>
salt to taste<br><br>
mush together, form into patties (they'll be mushy), and cook. They are the moistest, tastiest burgers ever!

Yup, I use it interchangeably and/or mix them half-and-half. melissel, you can also freeze it if you have some left -- it freezes great. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

You know, I think my 4-year-old just might eat that! Especially if I didn't present it as a "burger"--I can call it meatball patties <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
We made the turkey into tacos last night, and it was SO good--very clean, not fatty or oily like beef taco meat. Both girls ate an entire huge soft taco each. I'm definitely going to do more with ground turkey. Now if I could just find a source for natural or organic ground turkey breast! My WF only ever has it occasionally <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Thanks everyone--I already told DH and DD to expect to see lost of turkey this summer!

I just sub in ground turkey for ground beef in any sloppy joe recipe It doesn't usually need draining, of course, and sometimes even needs a bit of oil to add some fat.
