Giving Ground Turkey Some Taste

I have never like the flat taste of ground turkey. But the price was just to tempting.
Tip-when cooking ground turkey I add about 1 teaspoon of beef bouillon, 1/2 Tablespoon dry onions, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon GRANULATED garlic to uncooked ground turkey, then cook as normal.
I have also added spices for breakfast sausage to ground turkey with really good results too.

    I love using ground turkey instead of ground beef in my casseroles like mac, tomato & beef, chili, spaghetti, shepards pie… even ‘hamburger’ gravy. Still nothing better than a good old beef hamburger though. I’ve even made breakfast sausage and while the texture is a bit different, it’s very good in taste.

    I have found that ground chicken is much better (tastier and moist) than ground turkey It may cost a bit more, but is much better. I used ground turkey to make chile and everyone complained about how yukky it was. I made the same recipe and used ground chicken and they never knew it wasn’t beef.

    I have used ground turkey in many recipes, as my husband nor I can eat beef. Most people don’t even the difference if I don’t tell them. And my kids actually prefer it over ground beef. My husband loves it when I make tacos and the kids love it in a meatloaf. And I am always asked to make my chile beans. Really I think the trick is just learning how to season it.

  4. Jennifer says

    I just made meatballs with ground turkey. I also have a mock sausage recipe that uses beans but those spices are great in turkey too. A hint is to let the turkey sit and absorb spices. The flavor is better.
