Tip of the Day

I recently posted a recipe for mini turkey meatloaves so I thought I would talk a little bit about ground turkey vs. ground beef.  You would automatically think ground turkey is better for you than ground beef, wouldn't you?  Well, that may not be the case.  It is important to read the labels.  If the ground turkey uses a lot of dark meat, there may be more fat and more calories than a leaner ground beef.   You have to read the labels and compare.

If you really want a good quality ground turkey you may want to grind your own.  Buy skinless turkey breast and put it in your food processor.  Pulse a few times and it's ready to go.  When cooking with it though, you might want to add a little bit of olive oil (about a tablespoon per pound) so it is not too dry.
