This easy turkey stroganoff recipe uses ground turkey, but you can also substitute ground beef or ground chicken in its place. Ground turkey stroganoff is certainly not the classic version, but my kids love it, and it comes together in roughly 30 minutes. I doctor it up with sliced mushrooms, garlic-shallot puree, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, and fresh herbs (such as thyme or rosemary).
