Kitchen experimention

August 31st, 2006 at 08:22 am

Okay- I'm not sure how many of you out there realize that ground turkey is usually only 99cents, compared to ground beef which is nromally over $2 a pound. That's why I usually only buy the ground *beef* when it's on sale for the same price as the turkey.

In my tightwad zeal, I realize that there is a big difference in taste between the meats. We enjoy the "real thing" more. So- the last time I browned meat for tacos, I combined both of them and cooked 2 pounds of meat.

Taste test proved: the combination of both 99cent ground meat was much tastier than eating only ground turkey and was almost as good as our preference of ground beef.

Try it! =)

    I do this, too. We are lucky, we can still get a pound of ground turkey for $0.79/lb, but we never see hamburger for $0.99 anymore for at least two years. If we are lucky it will be $1.69/lb, but even $1.99/lb is considered a sale now here. Sigh. At least I can still get cheap chicken.

    Yep! This is a tighwads treasure. If it's in a seasoned dish at all it's hard to tell the difference, or at least the difference is not all that noticable. We can also get turkey sausage at the .99 cents too. Great for many things too. I find it funny...it's cheeper and healthier, yet most people avoid it...why? Just because it's not the 'social norm' I think.
