Leftover Turkey Patties
Prep and Cool time
Author: Vered DeLeeuw
Recipe type: Entree, Low-Carb
Yield: 10 patties
- 1 slice whole-wheat bread, dry (or lightly toasted and cooled)
- 2 cups cooked leftover turkey meat
- ¼ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- ½ onion, finely chopped
- ½ cup parsley, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- Tear the bread slice into pieces and process in food processor to breadcrumb consistency.
- Add the turkey, yogurt, egg, salt, mustard powder, black pepper, garlic and onion. Process until finely chopped and incorporated, stopping once to scrape the sides of the food processor bowl with a spatula.
- Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Fold in the parsley. (If you add the parsley to the food processor, the patties will be tinted green - still delicious, but not pretty to look at. Speaking from experience).
- Heat a double-burner griddle over medium heat, about 4 minutes. Brush with olive oil. Use a ¼-cup ice cream scoop or measuring cup to measure out the patties, placing them on the griddle and flattening with a spatula. Cook about 3 minutes on each side, until well-browned.
- Serve these turkey patties as a main dish, or on a sandwich with mustard, red onions and tomato.
