    i've had a big packet of turkey mince in the freezer for ages and haven't a clue what to do with it :)

    anyone have any ideas please, i've seen ideas on here for cheesy turkey burgers that i will try, but because it's only me don't really want recipes for which serves 4 etc because it's pointless for me lol

    so anything with turkey mince, with points worked out and cooking guidelines... as i can't cook :D would be amazing please!!

    thank you :)

    Not sure about me being able to provide points worked out etc. Though it's 3pts per 140g of mince. I would use it to make anything you would normally use beef mince in e.g. spag bol, chilli, tacos etc. I use turkey mince loads and at the moment have been making lots of turkey burgers, meatballs and kofta kebabs. Just look up a recipe online for those and you should find what you need. As for points - I just point everything I put in individually and then divide total points by portions.

    thanks everyone for the ideas! will definitely get onto cooking some! i'm dropping down to the next point section as being 12st 1lb i find i might as well move from 21 to 20 points ... therefore want to start using fresher ingredients and not processed foods as much etc so turkey mince seems the way forward! :D

    thank you!!! will let you know how i get on and yummymummy thank you v much!! didnt see that thread excellent timing! woo :D

    i always use turkey mince as i think it is lower in fat than beef, i like to make a chilli with it and if you use all the mince up you can freeze seperate portions . :)
