5 Days of Meat: Turkey

This week we're doing a quick overview of different kinds of meats with a few of our favorite recipes for each. We're kicking off the week with turkey, which we think is very underrated and should be celebrated year-round!

  • Cuts: Turkey comes in many different packages; the entire bird, the breast, legs, or ground up. Ground turkey is our secret weapon - it's lower calorie than ground beef and still tastes great!

  • How to cook: Treat turkey as you would chicken. Meat should be thoroughly cooked but still moist. Stick in the oven to roast, sizzle in a pan for stir fry, or steam.

  • Wine pairing: Turkey goes nicely with a light red, like a pinot noir, or a dry white, like Chardonnay.

  • Veggie pairing: People always think of Thanksgiving when it comes to turkey so why break up a winning combo? Pair your turkey with sweet peas and sweet potatoes!
