THANKSGIVING LEFTOVER PATTIES
Last year, my plans for a big Thanksgiving dinner got squashed because half of my guests came down with Covid the day before. I had dinner for eight all ready to go, but there were only three of us on hand to consume my feast. Needless to say, as the days went on, I had to get creative with the leftovers, so I came up with this quick brunch treat.
INGREDIENTS (Makes 4 patties)
1 ½ cups of stuffing, broken up
1 cup turkey meat, shredded and chopped
4 roasted brussels sprouts, chopped (or whatever green vegetable you served)
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup panko
¼ cup canola oil
salt to taste
½ cup cranberry sauce, for garnish
In a large bowl, combine the stuffing, turkey meat, brussels sprouts, eggs and panko, Stir until well mixed.
Form 4 burger-sized patties, pressing firmly on mixture.
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Place the patties in the pan and fry until brown on the bottom, about 3-4 minutes. Gently flip the patties and fry for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Remove from heat and drain on a paper towel. Lightly season with salt. To serve,
place two tablespoons of cranberry sauce on each patty.
