Grind the turkey in your own food processor to get meat that is lower in fat than store-bought. If you are short of time, use 1 pound packaged ground turkey. On a fat-restricted diet, use breast meat instead of thigh.


  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless turkey thighs
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small sweet green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper

    How to make it  27 minutes

  • 1

    Using your fingers, remove the skin from the turkey thighs. Cut off any visible fat and cut the meat into small pieces.

  • 2

    Either place the turkey in the work bowl of a food processor and finely chop, scraping down the sides occasionally, or finely chop the turkey by hand.

  • 3

    Chop the onion in the food processor or by hand. Transfer to a bowl. Add the garlic and pepper, and toss to combine.

  • 4

    Add the bread crumbs, mustard, parsley, egg white, salt and pepper. Add the turkey and stir to combine.

  • 5

    Preheat the broiler, setting the rack 5 inches from the heat. Divide the mixture into quarters and form each into a round, compact patty.

  • 6

    Arrange the turkey patties on the broiler rack and cook them 6 to 7 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
