Stretch out your turkey mince using these recipes

Turkey mince is a fantastic everyday protein that can be stretched across a melange of different meals. It's naturally low in fat, very lean, and nutritious too.

From indulgent burgers to large casseroles and pies, scroll on to discover how to use your turkey mince at home across many dishes:

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 lunch or dinner, these pitta pockets are so easy to create - just make sure the meatballs have cooled completely before wrapping them up to avoid breakage.

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.

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 lunch or dinner that promises leftovers.

cottage pie with sweet potato topping

Our take on cottage pie uses sweet potatoes for the fluffy mash topping, and tender turkey mince for a delicately savoury filling.
