I was never a fan of turkey until I bumped into Jennie-O. They have other turkey products but Lean Ground Turkey is one of my favorite. It's because I know I can do a lot with ground meats. I can saute it, fry it, partner it with my pasta and even make my own burger patties! I used to prepare meals with ground pork or ground beef, but now I put turkey into consideration.
Now-a-days, you'd never know how your food was processed. For me, it is important to look at the packaging. With this Jennie-O Ground Turkey, three things caught my attention - Lean, All Natural and 7% Fat. The reason I prefer healthy options these days is not really for me, but for my daughter and husband. The 1.25 lbs. package you see costs not more than $6 at Target. Which is probably not cheaper than the other ground meats but at least I know that it is made from all natural ingredients. With it I was able to make 3 different viands good for 3 people.
When cooking with ground turkey, especially this lean one (they also have extra lean), remember that they do not have much fat and you should add more spices to get the taste you want.
Mix altogether: ground turkey, garlic, a little sugar, salt and pepper . Shape into ball then fry. Better served with sunny-side up.
With the remaining ground turkey, I was also able to make spring rolls. I just mixed ground turkey with minced garlic and onion, salt and pepper and added tiny cubes of carrots. I was not able to take a photo though we still have some in the freezer. I will update this post if I remember taking some photo before eating them all up.
I cook without measurements, I just do estimates. I do not taste what I cook but I think I do things right because my husband loves them. Or maybe he is not telling the truth! LOL. If you have other ground turkey recipe, please share so I can try them too! :)
I was given the product/s mentioned above to review and was not compensated in any other way.
Everything was based on my 100% honest opinion.
