  1. Hi: Can I use ground chicken o beef instead. There is not fresh Turkey this time of the year, only Emus 🙂
    Thank you.

  2. The calorie count for this appears to be incorrect. Lean ground turkey is only 160 cals for 4 ounces. What am I missing?

  3. I added some vegan cheese and some leftover eggplant in the mixture and cooked them on the grill. So delicious 🤤!!!5 stars
