  • Here's what CookingLight.com has to say:

    Ground Beef vs. Ground Turkey: For backyard barbecue, your first instinct may be to choose ground turkey rather than ground round. But unless it's made only from breast meat, ground turkey isn't the low-fat option you might think it is. In fact, the calorie and fat amounts in ground round and regular ground turkey are surprisingly close, with the beef at 218 calories and 13 fat grams and the turkey at 200 calories and 11 fat grams. To save calories, go for ground turkey breast, which knocks calories down to 161 and slashes the fat almost in half. Ground Round (3 ounces, pan-browned)
    218 calories
    13 grams fat
    77 milligrams cholesterol

    Ground Turkey Breast (3 ounces, roasted, boneless)
    161 calories
    6 grams fat
    63 milligrams cholesterol
