Ground turkey is often touted as a good alternative to ground beef, and for the most part it is. Unless you routinely use extra-lean ground beef, which is 95 percent lean, opting for ground turkey will lower the fat in all recipes that would otherwise use ground beef. Most ground turkey is 90-93 percent lean, although you can buy 99 percent fat-free ground turkey made from breast meat. Enjoy this selection of recipes featuring lean ground turkey.
