Thanks for this! I think, that if you spice turkey well, nobody will notice it's turkey. That may be the secret my co-op employs, that makes their turkey burgers so popular. Other turkeyburgers I've tried by other vendors (Whole Foods, Sprouts) are bland, and a bit of a turn-off. There seems to be an art to preparing ground turkey in a way that makes it tasty and irresistible. (Yes, people, it's possible!)

And they were sold already cooked, so you could either take them home and heat them up for dinner, or have them as a grab-and-go item for lunch on the run.

They were so popular, word got around and brought new customers into the store just for those. Very healthy, very tasty,and cheap to make, if you could figure out the precise proportion of garlic, salt and any possible secret ingredients. Great for people on a low-carb diet.

Who knew ground turkey could be so good?
I eat ground turkey burgers a lot. The popular 93% lean is so dry and tasteless, but the 85% only comes in three-pound packs, so I have to make it into burgers and freeze them. I usually cook them simply in a pan and then near the end add Sweet Baby Ray's no-sugar-added barbecue sauce. Very tasty.

Missing from the thread thus far is Pork, which is in many cases less expensive than Chicken and with a similar fat content in some instances. One can routinely purchase a whole Pork Tenderloin for $7 or $8 and Pork Butt Roasts (about 3-4lbs) for around $12.

I like a good grilled filet. I learned how to make steak Diane from a chef who prepared it table-side for me many times. That led me to learning how to make beef bourguignon (https://cafedelites.com/beef-bourguignon/). That is basically beef stew or pot roast.

If you eat beef four times a week, make a big pot of beef stew. Chuck roast is much cheaper than beef tenderloin and beef stew is a nice, hearty meal. Cook once, have beef for dinner four times a week. I recommend mashed potatoes with it, I don't put potatoes in my beef stew. All the veggies you need are in the stew (onion celery, carrot, peas). I use good canned tomatoes in it too.

I pan seared thick slices of pork tenderloin last night and made a mushroom/Marsala sauce for them. Just had the leftovers for lunch. I don't eat the same thing, especially not beef four times a week. I eat something different every day and don't eat red meat very often any more.

I enjoy a good filet but I rarely eat red meat more than once a month. Usually if I can remember when I had the last one then its too soon to eat the next one.
Well--everything decomposes in your gut. Fortunately, humans are well equipped to eat red meat and it's sustained us for millions of years. 2.5 million years ago, "The expansion [of diet] involved making meat an important food source, not just an occasional items, as it was with earlier hominids and is still for baboons and chimpanzees."

I use chicken and turkey sausages/meatballs with tomato sauce and whole grain pasta, and ground turkey or chicken in chili with beans. Just looking for healthier meals, and if it doesn't bother me to make a substitution, I do it.

We eat lots of pork. Reasonable, versatile and delicious.
