    Minced turkey also makes a nice "Shepherds" Pie, with a dash of worcester sauce, and cheese on top of the mash.

    How about Turkey Burgers? I use the mince, bind with egg and seasoning and herbs maybe a touch of flour to help, form burger shapes, and cook either in the oven or in fry light in the pan.
    Thats what im having tonight with a brown roll as my hexb and a salad. :)
