12 High Protein Ground Turkey Recipes 

Air Fryer Turkey Meatballs

Air fryer meals are among some of my favorites! It’s quick and easy, and clean-up is generally a breeze. Our Air Fryer BBQ Turkey Meatballs are tender, juicy, and perfect for everything from family dinners to game-day appetizers!

Ground Turkey Cheeseburger Quesadilla

Fun fact: I used to work at Applebees when I was in college and we used to serve Quesadilla Burgers, not sure if they’re still on the menu, but they were so good! That was the inspiration for my Ground Turkey Cheeseburger Quesadilla, it’s a lightened-up, higher-protein version and it’s absolutely delicious.

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

There’s nothing more satisfying than coming home after a long day and having a hot, hearty meal waiting for you. Our Slow Cooker Turkey Chili is so simple to throw together before you leave the house in the morning and it’s a hit with the whole family.

Restaurant-Style Taco Salad

This recipe allows you to enjoy the authentic experience of a Mexican Taco Salad but from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Plus, the macros on our Taco Salad ensure you get to have your cake and eat it, too.

Veggie Taco Skillet

Around here we love one-skillet meals, especially when they’re high in protein, low in carbs, and super filling. Our Veggie Taco Skillet is one of my go-to meals when I’m in a fat-loss phase because it offers a giant serving size without a ton of excess calories.

Grilled Turkey Burger

When it’s grilling season, life tends to get a lot easier. Throw some of our high-protein Grilled Turkey Burgers on the grill and enjoy all the charred flavor while sticking with your nutrition plan. 

Turkey Sloppy Joes

The only thing easier than our Turkey Sloppy Joes is a can of Manwich, and I think we all know which option is the more nutritious one. This recipe is a family favorite and makes weeknight meals a breeze.

Crockpot Lasagna Soup

All the flavor of a classic lasagna but made into a hearty soup that cooks all day in the crockpot, that’s what our Crockpot Lasagna Soup is all about. Add a slice of crusty bread and a side salad and you have an extremely satisfying meal with little effort or hassle.

Macro-Friendly Hamburger Helper

Did anyone else grow up on boxed mac and cheese and Hamburger Helper? No shade here! But now that I’m an adult with my own family to feed and my own fitness goals to accomplish, I’m beyond grateful for our easy, Macro-Friendly Hamburger Helper recipe which takes about the same amount of time as the boxed kind and has infinitely better macros.

Unstuffed Pepper Skillet

Our Unstuffed Pepper Skillet is another go-to meal during dieting phases for me because it provides a hefty serving size, plenty of protein, and delicious flavor. Plus, all you need is one skillet!

Macro-Friendly Sloppy Joe Bowls
