Ground turkey is a very popular meat. With all the low calorie recipes out there and people aiming to cut out red meats turkey what is growing in popularity. Since we raise a few turkeys every year any way we thought we would give the ground turkey a try. It was way worth it!
Even if you don’t raise turkeys this is super easy to do and keep your costs on meat low. Every year turkeys go on a crazy sale around Thanksgiving. Just purchase a few extra and make your own ground turkey. A package of store bought ground turkey can be $4.99 a pound or more. A whole turkey on sale can be as low as $0.29 a pound!
We use ground turkey in everything from meatballs to tacos. The only place I really miss beef is in a burger! Even my meatloaf is a blend of Turkey, beef and pork! MMmmmm….
