    I found it in the food database when I searched ground meat. The nutritional value depends on how lean the beef is.

    i substituted ground turkey for ground beef a long time ago. I like the jennie o ground turkey breast. you might try it. when i did it my kids were still at home. i never told them and they never knew the difference and i had piece of mind it was healthier.

    I did too.
    I had a turkey burger for dinner and I don't miss ground beef at all.
    I think I've posted the recipe for the turkey burger if not, here it is:
