Do you like ground turkey as much as beef?

I have been purchasing a lot of ground turkey lately. My daughter likes it a lot more than beef for some reason. However, you really need to season it well because it can be bland. I don't think tomato sauce goes very well with it either.I've used it to make burgers, tacos, and with tomato sauce just to try something new with it.

  • I rarely buy ground beef anymore, it's ground turkey for us. I use it in all recipes that call for ground beef and I have a FABULOUS recipe for turkey burgers that my family prefers over ground beef burgers any day. One tip that I've found is to add 1/2 to 1 tsp. beef boullion to turkey if you're using it in skillet meals/casseroles/etc. to help season it.

    I don't even like ground beef now. It tastes too fatty and greasy and blah. My body doesn't like it either; my digestive system gets upset.

  • I don't like it unless you can't taste it for all the seasonings (bland) but I usually use 50/50 with turkey and beef to help out.

  • I don't mind it in spaghetti sauce, but a turkey burger on its own tastes too gamy for me.

  • I really don't like it. I've tried seasoning it well and I just don't care for the taste or texture.

  • I prefer it, but I'm the only one so I typically stick with beef (have to buy ground turkey from the grocery store, beef we buy straight from the farmer, the whole steer - it's readily available in my freezer year-round - turkey isn't).
