I have children who refuse to eat any kind of mammal so ground turkey is a good alternative, but I find the flavor bland. I tried this recipe and was extremely surprised with how good it was! I would use the recipe as-is for foods like tacos or for breakfast wraps for the kids. I would double the spices to add to spaghetti sauce or my version of green chile' stew. I like the bite of using black peppercorns ground to a medium courseness. Another thing I did was, after mixing the turkey with the spices, I shaped it into mini patties and froze them on a tray. When frozen I took them off the tray and bagged them... now it is easy to grab just as much as I need to cook for a soup or sandwich. Next I plan on trying this recipe as a base for meatloaf or meatballs. Update: Was recently given some store bought pork sausage, cooked some, tasted it, and it wasn't near as good as this recipe. I decided to use the spices used in this recipe, half the amount, mixed with the sausage, and the sausage was improved a hundred percent.
