You don't have to wait until Thanksgiving to enjoy turkey - and you don't have to buy a whole turkey to cook at once. Instead, stock up on ground turkey. It's an awesome swap for beef: it's a one for one, it's healthier, lighter, and low in fat and it's high in protein. Use it in meatballs, burgers, casseroles, and more and enjoy it without the guilt. Here are some of our favorite recipes.
Thought butternut squash is a classic fall ingredient, it's great any time of the year. It's also a great filling for pasta. Here, the squash is stewed and simmered with garlic, roasted red pepper, and nutmeg and combined with healthy ground turkey to make a comforting family meal. The squash is tender and sweet and the turkey is hearty. Serve with a light green salad and dinner is done.
These kid-friendly meatballs are easy party appetizers. They can be prepared up to two days in advance and reheated just before your guests arrive, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy with your family and friends. They're light, simple, and fun with a spicy sauce to keep things interesting.
You don’t have to invest in a gargantuan pre-basted buttery ball of poultry to enjoy turkey. A simple package of ground turkey is less expensive, healthier, and can be served happily without the post meal obligation to months of leftovers. An easy white wine, poblano, and carrot sauce keeps the meatballs moist and flavorful.
If you're craving enchiladas but don't have the time to invest, whip up this fun turkey enchilada cassrole. It has all the flavors of traditional enchiladas but is layered like a lasagna. If you're looking to lighten up the dish even more, just use half the cheese and wap it with a low-fat variety - it will still have tons of flavor.
This burger packs in the flavors and layers it on top. It's a simple patty topped with a corn and avocado relish with caramelized onion and garlic and fresh cilantro. And it all goes on a tostada "bun". Instead of ketchup and mustard, top with salty queso fresco and zesty tangy salsa verde.
