I love turkey meatloaf. I usually use sour cream to keep it moist.

Re: Help! What to do with ground turkey??

If you like Asian flavors, try this:

~ one pound ground turkey - fry, drain well, discard juices

3 T toasted rice powder (can omit)
1/2 C diced red onion
1 C chopped mint
1 C chopped cilantro -- mix all these with the turkey

Sauce:
6 T lime juice
4 T fish sauce
2.5 T sugar
2 - 3 T red pepper or deep fried chilis -- put on turkey

Serve with rice, 3" pieces of cuke, romaine hearts.

My sister lived in Asia for a while, and adapted this recipe from some there. I like it a lot!

Another (easier) Asian recipe:

1/4 lb ground turkey/person. Fry/drain.
1/4 onion, sliced/person. Add to turkey and cook 2 minutes
2 T ground, toasted rice/person. (Can omit)

1-2 eggs/person. Scramble in separate pan.

Serve with chopped tomatoes, chopped cukes, torn cilantro, rice, fish sauce, chili peppers, lime wedges.

Re: Help! What to do with ground turkey??

I use ground turkey in anything I make with ground beef...but I've never liked how dry it gets while browning, so I always add some liquid like the juice from a jar of jalapenos (if I'm making tacos or something like that)

In meatloaf I've always been unhappy with the results until I started using 1/2 ground beef 1/2 ground turkey...that was freakin awesome!
