I got some in to make dan dan noodles, I saw the recipe on bbc good food, then couldn't find all the ingredients so it's been sitting in the freezer.
I want to clear all the crap out of it for Christmas - and was hoping to use the turkey mince tomorrow.
Any ideas ?

I use it to make bolognaise instead of beef to make it a bit healthier. I add beef stock and no one notices the difference!

Turkey and leek burgers. Thinly slice leeks and finely grate carrots mix with the turkey mince add a veggie stock cube crumbled up. Cook the burgers and serve with avocado and tomato salad. Lovely.

Chilli with turkey mince is lovely too smile

I don't eat beef so use it for anything that you'd use beef (or any other) mince for - I agree that it makes nice meatballs, also lasagne, bolognaise, cottage pie, chilli...all nice wintry things

Do you do your meatballs in a tomato sauce ? They sound pretty easy to make, might add white wine though rather than red.

I love the idea of eckythumpenallthat's ginger turkey burgers.....

I make lasagna and burgers with turkey mince. It makes the lasagna much lighter than beef mince.

Brilliant x post BIWI and oragina smile they look lovely. Similar to ecky's burgers. What do you serve with the burgers ecky ?

Yep just mix them with some finely diced or grated onion, garlic and herbs, pan fry them and then finish in the oven. Serve with tomato sauce and spaghetti

Hairy Dieters Turkey burgers are excellent

Who knew turkey mince could be so tasty, I want to try everything.

I came on this thread to say 'bin it' as I'd cooked it for DS once and it smelled awful- like dog food!
I'm obviously not cooking it right!

I make enchiladas with it and also use it to top nachos with salad. I stir fry it with onions and peppers and pesto and tomato puree to taste and use this to top the nachos. For enchiladas I use the mix to fill tortilla wraps then bake in the oven topped with a tomato based sauce until the tortillas begin to brown.
