VERY Tasty Turkey Patties

Nothing like adding fat to improve the flavor of ground turkey — or anything else for that matter.  These turkey patties were juicy and tasty and ... okay, so they weren't particularly healthy but they were good!

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 3-4 slices pre-cooked bacon
  • 2-3 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbl. mustard
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs, Italian flavored if you have them.
  • 1-2 Tbl. olive oil
Procedure:
  1. Finely dice the bacon and cheese.
  2. With your hands, mix turkey, bacon, cheese, mustard and bread crumbs.
  3. On a clean surface, smooth the meat into a 1/2 inch thick sheet.
  4. Using a wide-mouthed glass or round cookie cutter, cut equal-sized patties.  Remold the scraps until all has been used for patties.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  6. Sauté the patties 3-4 minutes per side.  
  7. Remove patties from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  8. Serve.
This made 9 "old-fashioned glass" diameter patties. 

UPDATE: This is more than one meal for us so we got to test them as leftovers the next night.  We "nuked 'em in the nuker."   A few seconds in the microwave, enough to hear them sizzle, brings them back to moist and tasty.  I can see mass-producing these for the freezer the next time ground turkey is on sale!

Imprecise & Inexpensive

Two themes predominate in my approach to cooking. 1. Daily cooking of flavorful food need not be a precise art. 2. You can be an adventurous cook on a budget. Cooking and eating should be fun for both cookers and eaters.
