My mom usually bought a whole bird for Thanksgiving dinner but no one but Grandma would eat anything other than the breast resulting in a lot of leftover dark turkey meat. If your family is the same way this is a great way to get rid of that left over turkey. You can use chicken and fish instead of turkey.
- 2 cups mashed potatoes
- 1 lb turkey, shredded
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3⁄4 cup onion, minced
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1⁄4 cup flour, you may need more
- Mix everything together until well blended.
- Add enough flour so that the mixture isn't too sticky.
- Shape into patties and fry until golden brown about 3-5 minutes on each side.
This was an interesting and tasty recipe:) I liked the turmeric flavor and the color it gave the patties. These would be good with gravy I think, or just ketchup too, thanks! Made for Spring PAC 2009.
