GARNER, N.C. – With consumers looking for a variety of ways to incorporate meat into their diets, Butterball has developed a few new uses for its turkey.

 Butterball’s turkey breast sausage crumbles and turkey chorizo crumbles are prepared to give customers versatility when making meals, especially with breakfast.

 "These crumbles deliver the same great tastes as our turkey sausage patties and links and our chorizo-seasoned ground turkey, and their different format offers some new culinary possibilities,” said Butterball senior vice president Steve Canale.  “Chefs will find plenty of menu applications for these new innovations, while their customers will be able to customize their meals with top trending proteins and flavors.”

 Butterball also offered some possible dishes to go with the new crumble product: 

•    French Bread Pizza with Seasoned Turkey Crumbles- One slice combines the breakfast sausage crumbles with egg, cilantro and microgreens, while the other is topped with the chorizo crumbles, olives and pico de gallo—mix and match toppings to explore more taste combinations.

•    Venezuelan Breakfast Arepa- The arepa is filled with a mix of the breakfast sausage crumbles, turkey bacon, egg, queso fresca, salsa and avocado-cilantro sauce—this portable sandwich meets the increasing need for breakfast items to eat on the go.
