Most of us have been faced with what will I do with this as it awaits to be cooked? That is exactly how I created this delicious burrito mixture. Anyone who cooks the extra lean ground turkey has experienced the overall dryness. My simple procedure: completely mix 1 lb. of ground mild/sweet Italian sausage with 1 lb. of extra lean ground turkey. Ground lean pork also creates a moister turkey product when combined for meatloaf, etc.

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine ground turkey and ground Italian sausage in an appropriately sized bowl. You want one uniform mixed meat.
  2. Heat skillet over medium heat, add 1 T olive oil and begin browning the meat until done: 20 minutes or more.
