Recipe Tips
  • If your child isnít crazy about sandwiches, but loves turkey, consider sending some diced turkey and a side or two of fruit for his school lunch.

  • The next time you make your famous chili recipe, why not add turkey instead of beef? Youíll significantly decrease the fat and calories of the recipe, and save money at the same time.

  • Turkey isnít just for Thanksgiving! Consider roasting a turkey breast in the oven or slow cooker at other times of year. Turkey can be substituted in casseroles, soups, and sandwiches.
