Turkey mince help please

#1
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.

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 . :)
