Quick and Easy Turkey Patties

Published by on

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and that your first days of 2013 are off to a good start.


 Today I have a delicious and healthy recipe to add to your collection that is packed with flavor, easy to prepare, and makes use of those leftovers in your refrigerator. Score!


I made these patties with leftover turkey, but substituting chicken would be equally as delicious. Serve these tasty patties in a bun topped with mayo, atop a bed of greens, or alongside your favorite side dish for a complete, filling, and healthy meal. Enjoy!


Quick and Easy Turkey Patties

Serves: 4

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes


  • 1/3 cup gluten free panko break crumbs (can also use regular bread crumbs)
  • 2 cups shredded leftover turkey or chicken
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • Black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1/2 onion – finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley – finely chopped
  • Cooking spray


  1. Add turkey and panko to a food processor and process until finely chopped.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients. Process until fully incorporated, stopping once to scrape the sides of the food processor with a spatula.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray.
  4. Scoop turkey mixture by about 1/4 cup and form into patties with hands. Place patties in skillet and cook about three minutes per side, or until nicely browned.
  5. Serve atop a hamburger bun with favorite toppings (I like miracle whip, lettuce, and tomato), over a bed of lettuce, or alongside your favorite side.

Happy New Year to you Paula! This is one healthy recipe I have to try for dinner one time. Love the addition of greek yogurt and all the spices… so much flavor! I'd top mine with lettuce and tomato 🙂
