Some cooks worry that using ground turkey will create dry, tough burgers or meat loaves, but that isn't the case. If you've ever swapped lean ground turkey in for ground beef in a recipe, you might've gotten off on the wrong foot by using spices that didn't complement the meat's natural flavors. Our Editors have selected the very best lean ground turkey recipes so that you can enjoy a hearty dinner tonight without any of the guilt.
Turkey Meatball Reuben Subs
This sandwich combines two deli favorites—the hearty meatball sub and zesty Reuben sandwich. Flavorful turkey meatballs are high in protein without all that saturated fat, and they pair well with your favorite packaged coleslaw of choice, creamy Thousand Island dressing and mild Swiss cheese. Make these for dinner for a satiating sandwich that the kids will love, and pack the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. If you're in a rush, make the meatballs ahead of time, and assemble the sandwich when it's time to eat. Use a small cookie scoop to form meatballs quickly. Use the extra hollowed out center of bread for a casserole, bread crumbs, or croutons.
