Meal # 14 which was turkey patties is one of my lazy meals. Yesterday I went grocery shopping for our next seven meals and after running around doing errands with a toddler, dinner will have to be something already prepared or something really easy to make. Coincidently I had planned turkey patties for dinner on the day that I grocery shopped.
This only took me 5-7 minutes to prepare and cooking was real easy since I have a George Foreman grill. So all I had to do was use my ice cream scooper, scoop the mixture, plop onto the grill, and close the lid. How simpler could it get? To those that don't have a George Foreman grill, I really suggest you get one for cooking/grilling not only for burgers but for any other kinds of meats and even veggies too. I thank our old roommate for getting this contraption for us a few Christmases ago. Also, by using the ground turkey there was no fat that dripped from cooking it on the Foreman grill. So that's a real plus for those of you looking into trying to control your cholesterol.
The recipe I used for the turkey patties is the same one I used for the meatloaf I made a few meals ago. The only things I did different was doubling up the ingredients and omitting the ketchup. I bought a 3 lb. tray of ground turkey so this particular meal is going to last us until at least lunch tomorrow.
