Who else hates cooking with ground beef? Although I like a good burger every now and then I find ground turkey tastes very similar to ground beef and it’s so much healthier! Honestly the fat content in the Kirkland ground turkey is not much at all, I still drain out a little bit of fat but it’s nothing in comparison to ground beef, this makes it way easier to cook. I think people are starting to use ground turkey more but there are people still hesitant to give it a shot. I definitely recommend you check out the ground turkey at Costco because it’s not only healthy and easy to use but it’s super cost efficient! I have tried other brands of ground turkey when I have not been able to get to Costco and I find they do not taste as good and usually contain more fat that I have to drain out. So you may be thinking, Natalie! Tell me how I can use this ground turkey you speak so highly of. No problem, try it in mixed with the Baja chopped salad kit to make taco salad, use it in chili, one pan ground turkey lasagna, quinoa casseroles, or in things like tacos, burgers, meat sauce with pasta and stir fry. The options are endless! The ground turkey comes in a 4 pack and I usually pay about 19-20 dollars for a 4 pack which lasts 4 meals.

Nutrition: 9/10

Taste: 7/10 (You have to make it into something to make it taste good).

Convenience: 7/10 (Like I said you have to work your magic with it)

Cost: 8/10 (4 meaty meals for 20 bucks is pretty good in my eyes)

Talk to me about Turkey!

What do you all use ground turkey in? Do you have a favorite recipe with ground turkey you can share? Do you prefer ground beef or turkey? Would your partner eat ground turkey over ground beef?

  1. Hah only the people who can’t cook to save their lives are commenting negative stuff. Buy these and freeze them. Don’t be stupid and know how to cook, idiots

  2. Wow – comments left by some people across your review are impressively childish and rude.

    I buy this ground turkey all the time and find it is excellent when cooked with a mix of:

    – 1 tsp ground sage
    – 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    – 1/2 tsp onion power
    – 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    – 1/2 tsp salt

    Then eat it alongside eggs OR put it in a wrap with scrambled eggs and grated aged cheddar.

    And FREEZE the packages you don’t want to use right away.

  3. I just bought a 4 pack of ground turkey meat.
    It is absolutely discussing, it is white in color and smells weird. It doesn’t even smell like meat, it is white and looks like some meat alternative. ( no pinky meat look.)
    I tried to make a chili in a slow cooker, and the whole house smells bad from the meat.
    One day before the expiry date.
    It is going into a garbage damp and this is the last time that I have bought it.

    • Im so glad i found this comment, I came on here looking if someone had the same experience. I also cooked it yesterday 1 day before the expiry date, it seems we got the same batch. It just smells and tastes awful. I tried making it with a chili but I feel Ill be throwing out the entire pot unless my husband eats it.
      I’m suspecting it went bad before the best by date on the package. I’m returning the rest to Costco for a refund because there is no way ill be cooking with ground turkey again.

      • You need to keep in mind that this is NOT ground beef. It doesn’t look like it, cook like it, smell like it, taste like it, or anything else like it. I find it smells weird too but I turn on the fan and spice it up real well. I actually used it last night with a can of crushed tomatoes and lots of spices to make a healthy, low fat, high protein tomato meat sauce. It actually turned out good. It is not beef.
