Ground Turkey or Chicken Patties

Total Time

Simply spiced ground turkey or chicken made into patties with seasonings readily available in most pantries. I used Ritz crackers and minced sweet onion instead of the onion flakes. You can cook these patties up to 2 days before serving. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to cook. When you want to serve, microwave on HIGH for 30 to 45 seconds. Originally from a Family Circle magazine clipping. Excellent served with French Toast and fruit for breakfast or brunch. I have also made these patties into a breakfast sandwich with a fried egg and slice of cheese on top of a toasted English muffin.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, mix ground turkey or chicken, crushed crackers, onion flakes, poultry seasoning, garlic salt or garlic powder, thyme, and black pepper.
  2. Shape into six patties each about 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches in diameter or other size as desired. Adjust cooking time if changing size or thickness of patties.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add patties and cook on all sides for a total of 10 minutes or until nicely browned and internal temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit on an instant-read thermometer. Or,cut into one cooked patty to make sure it is no longer pink inside.

Really good recipe! Easy to make and very flavorful. My husband likes them a lot and said they were much better than walking down to the local fast food place for a chicken sandwich. That's what he would have done before we were married back in January. I really enjoy these patties too. They are moist and delicious. I usually make them on the small side and use a brown and serve roll as a bun! YUM! Thanks for posting!

Made as posted with turkey, garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon ground sage in place of thyme. These are leaner for breakfast suasuge and very tasty in an English muffin with scrambled egg. Thanks for posting foodtvfan.

I made these on 9/21/07 for Adopt-An-Orphaned-Tag.To both my SO and I,we thought that there was a lack of "sausage taste". I wished I could say that we liked it,but we didn't.But thank you for taking the time to post this.
