Ground Turkey Recipes

Ground turkey sometimes doesn’t get the credit it deserves. It’s a great alternative to ground beef, and with rising grocery prices, you can often find it cheaper than ground beef too! I keep ground turkey stashed in my freezer all the time so I can make some of my favorite recipes including hearty turkey chili and turkey taco salad. So just in case you need a little inspiration from the Budget Bytes team, we’re sharing all of our favorite Ground Turkey recipes for you to enjoy!
