This is a fantastic recipe to make ahead of time and have frozen, just to use at your convenience!! The addition of grated carrot to the mixture is a smart way to work veggies into the meal, while the bacon helps keep the patties moist while frozen.
- In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook carrots and onion until tender and golden about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute. Set aside to cool.
- In a bowl, use your hands to combine the turkey, egg, parsley, breadcrumbs, chili sauce and the cooled onion mixture until just blended. Do not overwork or the mixture will become tough when cooked. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into thick patty, about 3-inches across. Wrap a slice of bacon around the edge of the each patty. To freeze, wrap individual patties in plastic wrap and store in a resealable plastic freezer bag.
- Remove plastic wrap from frozen patties and place them on a grease rimmed baking sheet and bake in a preheated 375F oven until cooked through and patties reach an internal temperature of 165F, 40-45 minutes. If baking from fresh, cook 35-40 minutes. Serve with baked sweet potatoes and broccolini, if desired.
