I have ground turkey thawing in the fridge for tonight and i'm not to enthused at the prospect of my standard turkey meatballs. Anyone have a good recipe for ground turkey that is gluten-free and DF or know a way to jazz up the meatballs?

Where to start....

How about making the meatballs as normal but add some sage ...

You can make turkey kebabs.... add some real fine chopped onion, paprika, cumin and cilantro... then grill them on a griddle

You can make a bolgnaise and just switch turkey in....

And just about any mexican dish .... how about some taco's... and guacamole... or chilli con 'pavo' ....

Meatloaf with gluten-free bread and turkey?

Here is a great tip


or almost all of these are easily gluten-free....

Stuffed peppers. Brown rice, turkey, garlic, salt pepper, tomato sauce or crushed fresh tomatoes if you want the best flavor, diced onion and chopped basil. Put in large peppers. I like to get the assortment of colors for stuffed peppers. It makes dinner look so festive.

Ukranian Meatball-Spinach Soup

2 lg. eggs

2/3 c. long grain white rice

1 pound ground beef or turkey(I always use turkey) or 1/2 of each

1/2 c. finely chopped onion

1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel

2 TB lemon juice

1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1/4 c. flour

1 1/2 quarts chicken broth

1 Lb. spinach leaves, rinsed and drained(I use bags of baby spinach leaves, to taste)

Combine 1 egg, rice, meat, lemon juice and peel, oregano, salt and pepper. Make meatballs and roll in flour. Shake off excess. Balls will grow in size quite a bit when cooking. You can make jumbos or minis as you desire.

In a large stock pot, bring broth to a boil. Add meatballs. Reduce heat and simmer until cooked through and rice is tender. About 15 min. depending on the size of the balls.

When meatballs are finished cooking, add spinach leaves and cook until wilted. Beat remaining egg and add to soup in a stream, stirring to make threads. Add salt and pepper to taste.

This makes a very light but satisfying soup. Enjoy with a salad, bread and fruit.

My family likes this Mexican style dip (although we eat it as a meal) that I make.

Ground turkey cooked crumbled

1 can refried beans

1 jar salsa

Mix beans and salsa into meat and heat it all up. I serve it with tortilla or corn chips and a salad.

I use ground turkey for any recipe that calls for ground beef or ground chicken. I use it for almost anything from meatloaf to chili. It has a milder flavor, so you may want to add a touch more spices, but my husband doesn't even know I exchange beef for turkey! Some day I will tell him, I don't do it for everything, but we are trying to cut back on fats in our diet, and that is a good way to do it.
