Expert Tips

Regular ground turkey can contain as much fat and saturated fat as ground beef, so be sure to use extra lean (99% fat free) ground turkey breast.

Garlic-pepper blend can be purchased in the spice section of the grocery store. It's a mixture of garlic powder, ground pepper and other seasonings. If not available, use 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder instead.
