Mini meatball pittas

Swapping beef mince for turkey mince is a super simple swap that will instantly cut down the amount of fat in a recipe. We love using turkey mince to make these mini kofta-style pittas.

Perfect for picnics or packed lunches, these pitta pockets travel really well - just make sure the meatballs have cooled completely before boxing them up.

Butternut squash open lasagne

Our open butternut squash lasagne uses turkey mince instead of beef, and thin slices of squash instead of pasta for a gluten-free alternative that also adds a lovely caramelised sweetness to the dish.

Stuffed peppers

These sweet, slow-roasted peppers are filled with a lightly-spiced mix of veggies, sultanas and turkey mince and served alongside fluffy couscous for a colourful and delicious dinner the whole family will love.

Buffalo turkey sliders

Turkey burgers are a great alternative to chicken fillets - and will soak up any spices and seasonings amazingly. These bite-sized New York-inspired sliders are marinated in BBQ sauce for extra zing, and served in toasted baguette alongside coleslaw and pickles.

The smaller size makes them perfect for party food - simply stack on a plate and encourage guests to help themselves.

Lean turkey meatballs

These tender turkey meatballs are braised in a rich and fruity tomato sauce for ultimate flavour impact. Serve with spaghetti for one seriously satisfying dinner.

cottage pie with sweet potato topping
