If I'm being totally honest, I've never been a huge fan of beef. While my mom and sister are definite beef burger-loving gals, I tend to take after my dad when it comes to food and we definitely prefer turkey.
Turkey is super versatile and can be used in a wide variety of recipes. We ate it a lot growing up and now that I'm an adult and doing my own cooking, I tend to turn to ground turkey quite frequently- for everything from Mexican to Italian recipes.
In case you're looking for some new meal ideas, I rounded up some ground turkey recipes that would be perfect for dinner this week. Most of them could also be made ahead of time and reheated for a quick lunch. Food prep for the win!
