Heartburn-Friendly Turkey Recipes


Updated January 27, 2009

Turkey is a safe choice for most heartburn sufferers, because it is leaner than beef and ground turkey can often be substituted for ground beef in many recipes. With these turkey recipes, you will also get great tasting dishes that are more heartburn friendly because of the lower fat content.


Mushroom and Cheese Turkey Burgers
Cheeseburgers are great grilled food. If you suffer from heartburn, however, regular cheeseburgers can be too fatty and may trigger your heartburn. Using a low-fat alternative to ground beef and low-fat cheese will help reduce the chances of heartburn.

Stuffed Turkey Cutlets
If you like cutlets but don't like the higher fat content, try this turkey cutlet recipe. The lower fat content of this recipe, especially with the turkey instead of beef or pork, makes it heartburn friendly.

Turkey Burgers
Burgers are great, whether prepared on an outdoor grill or in an oven grill. For some individuals, the fat content of ground beef can trigger heartburn for them. Eating a low-fat version of a hamburger can be a safe alternative.

Turkey Cutlets with Mushrooms
The turkey cutlet is leaner than its beef counterpart, which is important for those people who suffer from heartburn if their food is too fatty. Also, the recipe uses heartburn-friendly ingredients, such as grape juice instead of wine.

Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti
I love spaghetti and meatballs, but sometimes ground beef will trigger my heartburn. With this low-fat version of a classic spaghetti and meatball dish, extra lean ground turkey is substituted for the beef or pork. Fatty meats can sometimes trigger heartburn for some individuals.

Turkey Meatloaf
When I was growing up, my father made a great meatloaf. Years later, when my mom wanted to use something leaner than ground beef, she adapted his recipe to use ground turkey. Both were delicious. Using my mom's idea, I've created a meatloaf recipe that is not only lower in fat than the traditional meatloaf recipe but uses ingredients that are heartburn friendly.

Turkey Tetrazzini
If you are looking for a delicious way to use your leftover turkey, then this recipe is for you. Using low-fat ingredients and omitting the spices makes this recipe a healthy and heartburn-safe alternative to the traditional recipe.
