We use ground turkey in place of ground beef for everything, but here is one that is a hit in our house:

Cheeseburger Rice:

1 lb ground turkey 1/2 tsp. salt
1 T minced onion 1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups water 1 1/2 cups instant rice, uncooked (we use brown)
1/2 cup ketchup 1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
2 T. mustard

* Brown meat and onion in a large skillet over medium high heat: drain fat.
* Stir in water, mustard, ketchup, and pepper. Bring to boil.
* Stir in rice: cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.
* Sprinkle with cheese; cover. Let stand 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

We add a small can sliced mushrooms and sometimes a box of frozen spinach thawed for extra veggies.

Just made some delicious tacos...
I used 1 tray of ground turkey.. add kosher salt, garlic powder black pepper..
1 tablespoon of olive oil.
1-2 roasted peppers.. New mexico or anaheim.. or buy a can.. these are the long peppers.. safeway, lucky, nob hill. most stores carry these.. if not roast a bell pepper, pill skin off, chop into small pcs and add to meat.

While the ground meat is cooking.. peel 3-4 medium size potatoes and dice.
add to meat while still has some of it's juice left.. mix really good, cover and let
the potatoes cook.
Take corn tortillas brush w/a little vegie oil or olive put on a semihot skillet to 'toast'
fold in half and there's your taco shell.
Top shell w/meat,lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream ... oh yeah cut a lemon add a couple
of drop in the tortilla shell w/the meat so good yum ee-.

INGREDIENTS

1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

1 (12 ounce) package uncooked egg noodles

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute the ground turkey for 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Drain the turkey, stir in the tomato sauce and sugar, and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream and cream cheese. Mix well and set aside.

Cook noodles according to package directions. Place them into a 9x13-inch baking dish, then layer the turkey mixture over the noodles. Then layer the sour cream mixture over the turkey, and top with cheese.

We like Mexican Turkey and Rice at my house. Brown 1 lb. lean ground turkey. Stir in 1 pkg. (5.4 oz.) Lipton/Knorr Taco Rice Mix and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 8 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in a can of (15 oz.) black beans (rinsed). Remove from heat: let stand 2 minutes until beans are hot. We eat this rice mixture in warm soft tortillas w/ cheddar cheese and taco sauce!

I don't have a name for it but it's a huge hit at my house :) Take 1 lb ground turkey and brown - add 2 cans cream of mushroom soup and some fresh mushrooms if you have on hand. Add pepper and salt to taste. Cook some rice up - white rice or wild rice are best. Cook some green beans and put on plate with rice - top with turkey sauce - YUM!!

Anything you use ground beef in can use ground turkey.

One recipe I like:
1lb ground meet, browned
1can tomato soup
1 can green beans
Mashed potatoes or french fries
Cheddar cheese

mix the meat together with tomato soup and green beans and heat. Pour into a casserole dish and top with potatoes or fries. Cook for about 20 minutes at 350F. (a little higher if you use frozen fries). top with cheese and heat for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Kids love this
