    I just realized that the previous one is not the one I use. This is. The 5-Spice is the winner here along with the shredded basil and mint.

    My absolute favorite is brown a ground turkey with a tbsp or so of olive oil. Once meat is browned, add garlic. Cook until fragrant. Toss is a bag of shredded coleslaw mix. Cook until tender. Finish with soy, ginger, crushed red pepper or even a bottled asian sauce. It honestly tastes similar to inside of an egg roll. Fabulous!

    Crack slaw! Love that stuff, make it all the time

    I made a batch of this for the week - been eating a serving of it for dinner with cauliflower rice. Thanks for the recipe idea, it is delicious!

    I'm absolutely horrified at myself right now - I just spent 5 minutes trying to work out what a ground turkey is and arent all turkeys ground turkeys ....before it registered what you all were meaning :D we call it minced over here in New Zealand , which is my only excuse and not a very good one . not my brightest moment lol

    If it makes you feel better - we do have wild turkeys that will fly short distance

    Debra - Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I am eating it right now with the tatziki sauce and it is DELICIOUS. I'm going to make a double batch next time.

    I took a break from the the chats for a while and just saw this today. I'm so glad you like it. It is really fantastic!

    Hi there,

    Does anyone have any ground turkey dinner ideas they can share? I’m looking for something other than chili or spaghetti. Thank you!

    This is dinner tonight:

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/4 cup onion (peeled, finely chopped)
    2-3 handfuls of fresh spinach
    1 clove garlic (peeled, minced)
    1 pound ground turkey
    1 egg
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
    8 ounces feta (crumbled)
    4 Italian buns (toasted)
    4 slices provolone (optional)
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

    Preheat a grill or cast iron skillet to medium-high heat.
    In a large saute pan add olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add onions and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add spinach and garlic and cook until spinach is just starting to wilt. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    In a large bowl, combine chicken, egg, red pepper flakes, cooled spinach mixture, and crumbled feta. Just barely mix to combine. Form into four even patties. Place on grill and cook until charred on both sides and cooked through to 165ºF, about 6 minutes per side.
    Serve patties on an Italian bun and top the burger patty with a slice of provolone cheese if desired.
    Tip: Form the patties in advance and keep in the refrigerator until ready to grill. When you are ready to grill, allow the burgers to come to room temperature before cooking.

    Serves 4

    We will play around with the amounts; for instance tonight I'm not using as much feta and no buns. Sometimes we don't use the provolone. Make it your own.

    I grilled up some feta stuffed turkey burgers with Greek seasoning and then put it in a pita with some Tazhiki onion and arugula. Was going to take a picture of it but i took one bite and next thing i knew it was gone!
