Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need oil to cook ground turkey?

I highly recommend you use oil to cook the ground turkey. Turkey is very lean and you do not want a dry pan when cooking.

What can I add to the ground turkey and why season at the end?

This ground turkey seasoning is all you need. There is a perfect profile of spices with salt and a little bit of sweetness. You can add it to veggies or make healthy bowls for later.

You’ll want to season the ground turkey at the end because I suggest cooking at a high heat. And at a high heat spices and sugar easily burn. To avoid this save the ground turkey seasonings to the very end so all the flavors are bold and not burnt or scorched.
