All too often disregarded as a less flavourful alternative to beef, turkey mince is actually a healthy, protein-rich and tasty way to make meatballs, burgers and all manner of other dishes.
The classic turkey meatball is given the Michelin-star treatment by Andy Waters, who covers them in a rich pepper sauce, while Dannii Martin, opts for a meatball and risotto soup instead – both warming, hearty meals that are perfect during the colder months. Lisa Allen’s Turkey sliders with homemade buns will have you questioning why beef is king in the burger world, while Andy Waters’ Turkey laab proves that minced turkey can be just as exotic as any other meat.
Turkey mince can be used as an alternative in most beef mince recipes, so get creative and try swapping the two for a healthier meal. Nearly all of these recipes can be made using leftover shredded turkey, too, so be sure to keep them in mind for just after Christmas.
