Fool your finicky eaters with low-fat ground turkey. The trick, add some browning sauce to mixture as you are frying it. It turns the turkey browner, more like hamburger (and doesn't change the clean taste at all!)

I have used ground turkey in chili in the past. In order to trick my husband into eating it (he is a picky, prejudiced eater who will eat only beef, and who would not eat turkey if he was starving), I had to add lots of spices to the turkey as I was browning it in the skillet, because it had relatively no taste. He ate the chili and thought that it was really good. Never told him what the meat really was! (03/22/2005)
Another trick is to add beef bouillon to the turkey mixture.
We've used ground turkey meat for several years now. Always adding spices to the bland taste of the turkey. Recently we tried mixing 1 lb. ground turkey sausage to 1 lb. ground turkey, which we both like a lot better. I don't have to cover up the flavor of it, as I would if I'd just used the plain ground turkey meat alone. (04/09/2005)
