As beef prices continue to rise, foodservice operators are faced with the decision to either raise their prices, make less money or find a new staple protein. As chefs look for cost-effective menu alternatives, Butterball Foodservice has developed a wide variety of flavorful recipes that feature ground turkey instead of beef.
Among Butterball’s recipes are:
- Banh Mi Turkey Wraps — These lettuce wraps made with ground turkey and Asian flavors
- Three Philosophers Sliders — Slider option highlights distinct flavor profiles of sweet, sour and savory
- Turkey Breakfast Tacos — These tacos feature spicy turkey taco filling, scrambled eggs and salsa in a warm tortilla
The perfect platform for menu creativity, Butterball Ground Turkey is great for burgers, meatloaf, meatballs, pasta dishes, comfort foods, tacos, breakfast burritos and more. Not only is turkey less expensive than beef, it is also a highly versatile protein for any daypart. Chefs can reinvigorate menus with new items at a better price point that also come with the halo of health.
Richie Jenkins, Butterball Foodservice’s senior director of marketing, said: “As beef prices skyrocket, foodservice operators are increasingly being forced to either raise their prices or find alternatives. Our versatile ground turkey provides an opportunity for chefs to use their creativity and enhance their menus in a way that allows them to satisfy their customers’ need for delicious food, healthy options and wallet-friendly meals.”
