I’ve been on a big ground turkey kick lately. I have no idea why, but up until last week I’d never cooked with ground turkey. Sure, I’ve made a turkey on Thanksgiving. But ground turkey? It’s like I’ve been living under a culinary rock.

I was surprised that it actually tasted good. I feel like maybe I avoided turkey because I heard it’s bland and because I know people who are afraid of red meat often opt for turkey (ie: turkey burgers) which is stupid and just annoyed me.

But I’m a convert now. Ground turkey is cheap, versatile and tastes awesome.
