    What drives me crazy is how they package ground turkey. 20 ounces. Who has a recipe for 20 ounces!?

      I have an answer for that! We pre-make the patties and freeze them. Defrosting the patties takes a few minutes, the flavor & texture doesn’t get ruined and it’s SOOO easy on a busy night.

      We currently have several pounds of ground turkey in the freezer.

    After seeing the jalapeno turkey burgers you and Michael make, I decided to try ground turkey. I wasn’t sure I was ready to have it as a burger though, because in the past I hadn’t had good turkey burgers. So I decided to substitute my normal hamburger with turkey and made turkey loafs (and I used the remaining 4 oz in the mix of hb meat for my family’s meat loafs).
    I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised. I think I like the ground turkey better than the hb meat ones. It wasn’t greasy at all, and it allowed the flavors from the onions, bell peppers and tomatoes to really shine through. Even my picky husband said the turkey loafs were really good! Score!
    I make mini loafs about the size of a cupped hand. 1 lb of ground turkey made 8 loafs, so I got two as a serving….so I didn’t feel deprived as far as serving sizes go. With the hb meat I only have one, and sort of feel cheated.
    Thanks to all the food/meals you post, I have ventured out side of my normal food comfort zone and tried things I never would have before.
    On another note, I haven’t tried the salmon at home yet, but I did try tilapia. It was pretty good for my first try at cooking fish at home.

      Christi I think that is SO cool. I love that you guys are trying the recipes I do and that your family enjoys them. That’s motivation enough for me to keep going. 🙂

      It’s been so long since I had ground beef I forgot how greasy it was. That’s a great point.
