Twilight Time Turkey Patties with Cranberry Sauce

This is from Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals cook book. What a fun recipe with great flavors. The combination of ingredients reminded me of Thanksgiving dinner all in one burger- minus the jello of course. I think I will call these Thanksgiving burgers from now on. And my favorite- Cranberry sauce with Turkey!!!


1 handful of pecan pieces crushed or chopped very finely
1 cup instant mashed potato flakes
1&1/3 pounds ground turkey
1 small white onion grated or finely chopped
handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
2 sprigs thyme
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning ( I used 'Better Than Bouillon' chicken flavor from Costco)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce- or make it homemade.

Mix crushed pecans with potato flakes in shallow bowl and set aside. Place turkey in different bowl and add onion, parsley, thyme, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Form into patties and coat patties with potato and pecan mixture and cook on skillet with a little oil- 5 minutes on each side until turkey is fully cooked.

Serve with cranberry sauce on top! I love the Oroweat skinny hamburger buns toasted with this recipe.
