Ground Turkey Recipes, Hints & Videos

In addition to being less expensive than beef, ground turkey is lower in fat and calories. That’s an additional bonus when you’re trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. So why not give turkey a try. It’ll shrink your budget and your waist line.

Today’s food prices are quickly becoming the number one topic in everyone’s budget. From the cost of feed to the cost of transporting and processing it, beef has seen a rapid rise in price. Chicken is great if you’re baking, frying or sautéing, but doesn’t always cut it when you want to make meatloaf or a casserole. That’s where ground turkey comes in. It has the same consistency of ground beef at a fraction of the cost.
