I think one of my all time favorite food substitutions has got to be ground turkey. I started using it in spicy dishes like chili and enchilada’s in place of ground beef. I did it on the sly to see if the family would notice. Didn’t happen. Then I started getting brave and putting it in meatloaf and meatballs. Amazing reviews followed. Very cool. Then I fessed up, and no one cared. Even cooler! Now, it’s what I use in place of hamburger in just about everything. I think the only exception would be hamburgers themselves, although I have learned to make a mean turkey burger too.
