Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz
Plan ahead the patties need to chill for at least 6 hours or 24 hours, the longer the better ---1 pound should give you 6 small patties or 4 large I would suggest to make them small to reduce the cooking time, if you are are oven baking then go ahead and make 4 large ---this recipe may be doubled but keep the garlic to the same amount or increase only slightly, these may be browned in a skillet in oil then placed on a baking pan to finish cooking in the oven

Yum! I am not usually a fan of ground turkey, and find most recipes too bland. This was perfect! It had a nice, strong flavor without being overpowering. I really, really love how well the ricotta and provalone created this awesome cheesey goodness unlike anything I've tried before. The only thing I changed was omitting the season salt and grating the onion instead of chopping. I made them slider sized and served them on home made whole wheat mini rolls. They held together perfectly and cooked evenly, though I didn't plan ahead and was only able to chill for about 4 hours. They were a big hit at my table, and I'm sure I'll make these again.
- 1 ground turkey
- 2 large garlic cloves, minced (garlic lovers use more)
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons ricotta cheese (can use creamed cottage cheese slightly mashed with a fork)
- 1⁄4 cup shredded provolone cheese (can use fontina or emmenthal)
- 1⁄4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (or use 3 teaspoons dried)
- 1 teaspoon dried basil (or use 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh)
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1⁄4 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt (or use white salt)
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (can use less I like lots of pepper!)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
