This is a recipe that I jotted down years ago. Not sure where it came from but sounded like something my girls would like.

These were made today for my granddaughter and she loved them. I used ground turkey breast, the poultry seasoning and coated them in corn flake crumbs instead of the flour and breadcrumbs. They turned out crispy and moist. Thanks much for sharing this wonderful kid friendly recipe.
