(7 Votes)


Cheesy Creole Shepherd's PieHealthy ground turkey recipes are incredibly versatile and easy to make. Ground turkey recipes are full of flavor and low in fat, too. From ground turkey burger recipes to ground turkey meatloaf recipes, these are 23 of the best ground turkey recipes around. Make any one of these low fat recipes using ground turkey tonight to discover the healthy goodness only found in healthy ground turkey recipes.

Ground turkey is also a phenomenal substitute for ground beef. So, give it a try and make any of your favorite ground beef recipes with ground turkey instead. You'll be saving yourself from lots of unecessary fat and calories and still getting lots of protein from your meals. What's also great is that you never have to drain ground turkey. Ground beef often creates fat that melts in your pan and requires you to drain it or soak it up with a paper towel before serving or completing your recipe. Because ground turkey is already so lean, there is no fat to drain, so you save yourself an extra step in your cooking process. You can't beat that.
