Buying high quality ground turkey
When you eat meat you are consuming whatever the animal was fed or medicated with. So do your research to know how the turkey was cared for. When possible, I aim to buy turkey that is never given antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. Look for "pasture raised" and "humanely raised" on the label. USDA organic is also a good label to look for but not always necessary if the turkeys are pasture raised since the turkeys eat whatever is in their natural environment and not organic feed.
To simplify things, I've been purchasing my meat from ButcherBox for years so that I always have the highest quality meat right in my freezer. It makes meal prep super easy!
Ground Turkey FAQs
To enhance the flavor of ground turkey add seasonings and spices that compliment your dish (salt, pepper, garlic...). Adding some fat or grated zucchini will add some moisture to ensure the ground turkey doesn't dry out. To further enhance the flavor you could add tomato paste or worcestershire sauce.
Cooked ground turkey will usually last up to 4 days in the fridge when stored in an airtight container. Raw ground turkey can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days, after 2 days it should be cooked or frozen.
Both cooked and raw ground turkey will usually last for up to 4 months in the freezer when stored in an air tight container. Thaw raw turkey overnight in the fridge or in a bowl of ice cold water. Once it has been defrosted cook within 1-2 days.

Obsessed with these turkey burgers!
I don't cook much with ground turkey because I always thought it was too dry. You've convinced me otherwise! I'm looking forward to making quite a few of these. Enchilada Casserole will be the first!
