These 15 ground turkey recipes conclude pre-portioned meals and freezer-friendly options. Spend some time prepping your meals in advance to reduce your eating stress!
Ground turkey is one of my favorite proteins for my meal prep recipes. It cooks quickly, is a great source of protein, and has many uses.
Compared to ground beef, turkey meat is lower in calories and saturated fat, so it's a great choice when trying to eat healthier foods. Personally, I've found that ground chicken (another great choice if you're trying to cut down on calories and saturated fat) tends to dry out, while ground turkey doesn't.
I also love how many ways there are ways to use turkey in different recipes … it makes a great burger, the patties are great, it is great in sauces, and it is just great when seared with some seasoning. And ground turkey goes with so many different flavors too! I love it with thai and greek flavors.
This post shares some of my favorite recipes for making ground turkey to keep us motivated to prepare meals on Sunday!
