Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables
Ground turkey makes an excellent alternative to beef in these stuffed peppers.

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties
For a leaner breakfast give this turkey sausage a try. "You're not getting this flavor or quality at any drive-thru, I can guarantee you that," says reviewer DivineHealth7.
Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce
I know what you're thinking — turkey? In spaghetti sauce? Take it from reviewer Chrissy DeCosmo Fessler says, "This was an excellent sauce. I ate so much bread last night when I made this because I just kept loading it up with sauce. It is really quick to make too, which is nice when you don't have the time to do a long simmering sauce."
Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs
For a much healthier take on hot dogs, use ground turkey and flavor it with Middle-Eastern seasonings. "Fantastic! I have made these sausages into patties as well," says reviewer *ghill*.
Travis's Turkey Burgers with a Bite
Recipe creator JENLLONG says, "Yummy, moist, mesquite-flavored turkey burgers -- seasoned with a chopped jalapeno for that extra special kick."
This is not your average meatball recipe. Eggplant, ground turkey, carrots, onions, Parmesan, almond flour, and more come together in this paleo-friendly recipe. Reviewer TMMEZZA says, "Not only were these meatballs very moist and tasty, but more importantly my picky seven-year-old gobbled them up!"
'Unstuffed' Cabbage with a Kick
Recipe creator Tamara Glover says, "This is an alteration on a typical stuffed cabbage recipe. It's healthy, low-fat, low-carb, and a bit spicy. You can't go wrong with this recipe!"
Turkey Kofta Kabobs
This healthy take on Kofta Kabobs — a traditional Middle-Eastern delicacy — replicates the original using a multitude of flavorful spices. "We added a little bit of panko to make the meat less wet to help everything hold better," says reviewer Melissa Singh, "Other than that, amazing flavour!"
Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Casserole With Eggplant and Tomato
This protein-packed dinner layers ground turkey, sweet potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes, bright herbs, and a nutty sauce all in one casserole.
Jive Turkey Burgers
Ground turkey and turkey sausage mingle to make a moist yet flavorful burger. Reviewer Soup Loving Nicole suggests letting the mixture firm up in the freezer before cooking: "I ended up having to stick the mix in the freezer for 30 minutes to get it firm enough to shape into patties. Other than that this recipe is perfect."
