Protein is an essential part of our diet.  It’s necessary to keep the body healthy and protein is critical in many ways.  Too little can lead to health issues.  There are varying suggestions on the amount of protein one should consume daily so the obvious trailing sentence here is to check with your doctor.  But in the interim, you can be on the hunt for easy ground turkey keto recipes (hint, hint, like this one).

Here’s the good news about the flexibility of turkey – any ground beef recipe, ground pork, heck even ground lamb could be re-imagined with ground turkey.  And here’s the great news – turkey is generally lower in saturated fat than beef.

Let that low-carb inspiration begin!

Dinner Ideas With Ground Turkey

Here’s where it started for me.

keto ground turkey and zucchini recipes

I had one beautiful zucchini staring back at me each time I opened the fridge.  Now, I’ll admit that I’ve let many a good veggie die in the refrigerator before which always makes me feel wasteful.  Does this happen to you and it makes you feel bad about wasting money and a perfectly good item?  Well not today, friends.  Today we’re making a low-carb turkey burger with it.

Ground Turkey Keto Recipes For Lunch Or Dinner

I don’t know about you, but when I search for a recipe, I’m often considering how I’ll feel about eating it the next day and how many portions will the recipe make.  Will I be able to elongate the recipe into many meals to soothe the ever-climbing costs at the grocery store?  I almost always wonder if the dish is something I would serve to others.

What are your thoughts as you peruse the options?

We already know that turkey has less fat than beef.  That’s great news but it did cross my mind that my turkey burger could be dry because of this. Do you think that, too?  About turkey burgers?  Ask my dad, he won’t try one.  But, I have a yummy solution for that so let’s get into it!

Salad oil brings a delicious juiciness to this burger.  We’ll add it to the cooking process and a little bit to the finished product.

You’ll find salad oil in the deli section of your grocery store and it should be a staple in your pantry.  It’s now a staple in mine!  The flavored oil plus the zucchini added the proper moisture to make this ground turkey keto burger a standard in your monthly (or weekly) rotation.

We’ve covered lower saturated fat.  We’ve added veggies and salad oil for moisture.  But now we need crisp.  I’m tired of bacon.  I don’t particularly love it to begin with and I definitely hate the way my house smells after cooking it.

Let’s try something else.

Fried salami.  Have you ever tried this?

I always think frying is so wasteful.  Especially since it normally involves naughty food.  Wasting oil on junk food seems like a double whammy to me.  But I wanted something crunchy to round out the turkey burger, so …..

Using 3/4 cup of oil in a deep but small pan, I let the oil heat on high.  Cook off 2 or 3 slices of salami as a snack.  They won’t be as crispy as you want but this is an important step in the process.  The oil will render the fat in the salami.  I don’t know science so I’m sure we could look up the combo of avocado oil and salami fat, but what I do know is that the next 2 pieces you fry will be absolutely perfect.

You only need 30-35 seconds and voila.  Crispy perfection.
