  • i use extra lean ground beef most of the time, but use a mixture of that and ground turkey when making meatballs or hamburgers.

  • I agree. I always thought the idea of ground turkey sounded nasty, until I tried it. It's so much more flavorful. I still use both though, cause hubby likes ground beef.

  • I only use ground beef. I have tried the ground turkey and it always tastes like it's going bad to me, kind of a "funky" flavor.

  • we use ground turkey breast, if the package doesn't say it's ground turkey breast is contains the dark meat and skim and has the same fat and calories of regular ground beef!

  • ground turkey is alot better and it does not have that funky smell that hamburger does..but i can tell you that sometimes that turkey can be a little dry so the dark meat is better..i have found that going directly to the meat market you can get roasts cut and made into hamburger and they are GOOD! there is no fat or other gross things in it and the meat is a better quality

  • We use 90/10 ground turkey. My beef only DH loves it. It's not greasy like beef and personally I like the flavor better.

  • Half turkey half beef for most things calling for 2 lbs.
