‘Vegetarian’ Turkey Patties

I love turkey patties! I just find them a lot more rewarding than any beef burger patties out there. Having said that, I really like my turkey patties to be full of fragrant herbs and spices. And the more the better which jokingly makes them more vegetarian than turkeyish. Not only does the parsley and cilantro make the turkey patties taste amazing but they are also so pretty to look at. One of the tricks that I use when I cook turkey is added a spoonful of yogurt or sour cream to the raw meat to avoid it from becoming too dry. I also threw some coleslaw together while waiting for the patties to grill.

Ingredients: Makes around 4 patties

Turkey Patties: 1 1/2 lb minced turkey, fresh parsley, fresh cilantro, 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of yogurt of sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, black pepper and salt.

Coleslaw: Slaw Cabbage, mayonnaise, honey, relish, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to season

Begin by adding the minced turkey to a large bowl. Chop fresh cilantro and parsley. I used twice the amount of fresh herbs that are in the photo.

Add the fresh herbs to the bowl and throw the crumbled feta cheese in.

Add the breadcrumbs, paprika, salt, pepper, yogurt and 1 egg

Mix all this together with your hands. Yes sounds gross but that is the best way to get everything really well mixed.

Shape 4 round shaped balls

Add to a hot grill and cook for 5 to 7 minutes

While the patties are cooking throw some cabbage slaw into a bowl. Add mayo, relish, Dijon mustard, honey, salt and pepper.

Mix together and serve with the Turkey Patties.
