I have never cooked with ground turkey, no real reason why I just have always used ground beef, any way when I went to the grocery store they had ground turkey so cheap I could not pass it up, so last night I make meatball sandwiches with the turkey, they were so good I could not believe it. 


Do you use ground turkey?

 At my house we use ground turkey for a lot of different things. Tacos, sheppard's pie, meatballs, I think the only thing we haven't done with it is make turkey burgers. Even our dd likes it, and she is a picky 4 year old! Sometimes it is cheaper than ground hamburger and it is more lean than hamburger as well.

I do occasionally swap ground beef for ground turkey.  I was very leery of it at first, but it was good.

We use turkey everything since it is better for you. We do ground turkey, turkey hot dogs, turkey kielbasa. Yum!

I use it a lot! The only thing I don't like it in is lasagna. I like beef better for that.

you will be surprised how "dirty" ground beef smells once you  cannot find the chicken or turkeyavailable in the ground meat section. My kids were surprised they could taste the difference.

I don't use it frequently, but that's mostly because it is usually more expensive than ground beef.  When I find it on sale, though, I snatch it up.  I've used it in tacos and casseroles mostly.  I've also used ground veal, though so far I've only made meatballs with it.

We do 9 times out of ten because I have high cholesterol. I don't always like it though.

Sometimes.  My SO prefers it, but my dd and I don't care for it.
