Sometimes you just can’t pass up a great deal, which is I’m a fan and lifelong member of Costco! Who doesn’t love buying in bulk and saving lots of money. 

Moreover, Costco is great if you have a family or need to feed a lot of people. I love to plan my meals around Costco staples like their meat and produce, especially since everything is fresh and always well stocked.

Best Ground Turkey Recipes

One of my favorite Costco purchases is their lean Butterball ground turkey that sells for roughly $2.69 per pound. Moreover, in an attempt to cut down on eating ground beef, ground turkey is an excellent substitute. Really you can substitute ground turkey in any recipe that calls for ground beef. Just be sure to cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.

But here’s the thing with Costco, you can’t just buy however much ground turkey you want for dinner that night. You have to buy the entire bulk of the packages. That means you have to get creative on what you cook so that you’re not making turkey burgers every night. (Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing!)

So, the good news is that you can separate and freeze those meat packages. Moreover, it’s super convenient that the packages come perforated for easy separating too! This makes for a great weeknight dinners that can be done in a flash.

So, to avoid boredom and ground turkey burnout with your family, check out these easy and delicious ground turkey recipes that all use the Costco Butterball ground turkey meat packages.

These packages weigh roughly 1.7 pounds each. So you’ll see that these recipes call for 1 ½ –  1 ¾ pounds of ground turkey. It’s the perfect way to cook up those ground turkey portions!
