My First post!!. Turkey and Veggie Patties

Ok guys, bare with me! This is my FIRST EVER recipe post!!

This was a recipe that I just made up one night with ingredients that I had around and MY GAWD -- its delish!! Everyone I serve this to loves it! They are super easy to throw together, and you can vary the ingredients as much or as little as you want based on your preferences... Just have fun with it!


1 pound ground turkey (one package)
1 can mixed vegetables - drained. (Potato, carrot, corn, mix etc.)
5 slices whole wheat bread crumbled
2-3 eggs depending on size
2 teaspoon onion powder (amount depending on your taste)
2 teaspoon garlic powder (amount depending on your taste)
1 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste
Seasoning Salt to taste
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (enough to coat skillet)

Preheat skillet to medium high and add oil.

1. Mix all wet ingredients and spices in bowl with your hands. 2. Add as much crumbled bread as you need to make mixture firm enough to make patties.

3. Form patties about 1 inch thick (they will be very wet still).

4. Cook in skillet in a small amount of cooking oil until golden brown and cooked through (about 5-6 minutes per side). I usually Sprinkle with salt and pepper once or twice throughout cooking.

TIPS: The wheat bread is key.. it makes the recipe have a sweet undertone and keeps the patties moist. (Hint, wetting your fingers with water keeps the mixture from sticking to you when you are forming the patties) ENJOY!
