  • If interested, I can find you an awesome taco stuffed shells recipe using jumbo pasta shells, its so good, way better than regular tacos. I also make stuffed peppers with ground turkey, delicious!

  • My mom used to make this delicious hamburg gravy, she cooked the hamburger in a skillet, with onions, and green peppers if we had any, then she made a rue and then a gravy in the juices from the hamburger. We usually had that over mashed potatoes or rice. I bet doing that with Turkey would be like eating thanksgiving dinner, yummy!

    I make a lot of meatloaf, or shepherds pie using deer burger. I imagine you could do the same with turkey, only if you're using turkey, I'd use poutry seasoning instead of whatever seasoning ((I use lipton onion soup mix for hamburger or deer meat) you use in your meatloaf.
