If you’re looking to cook with ground turkey, you’ll love this collection of easy, healthy, and delicious ground turkey recipes!

We eat a lot of ground turkey in my home because my husband has alpha-gal, a red meat allergy derived from a tick bite (sounds pretty wild, right?). So I have a lot of experience using lean proteins like ground turkey and ground chicken. (You can find my ground chicken recipes here.) Both are fantastic options but ground turkey is the most similar to beef or pork.

The good news? Ground turkey is high in protein and low in fat. It’s also lower in calories than pork and beef. It’s also incredibly versatile and can be included in so many dishes from burgers, meatballs, skillet meals, soups, and more.

The trick to ground turkey is knowing how to flavor it well. I like to season it more aggressively than pork or beef which yields the tastiest results. I’ve won so many ground turkey skeptics over with the recipes listed below!
