Let these gooey and sweet turkey patties satisfy your cravings!
Homemade burgers, meatballs and fritters are easy to put together and make special with different add-ins and seasonings. Instead of ground beef try using ground turkey instead. Since turkey is a leaner meat it’s obviously a healthier option. I put together a turkey patty recipe that can be transformed into any one of these depending on what type of meal you want. What makes these stand out is the addition of some fruit and goat cheese.
Start by dicing up the apple, garlic cloves and onion. Place in a bowl with the goat cheese, some honey and the seasonings. Add in the egg and mix all ingredients together.

Add the ground turkey in to the bowl. Use hands to form into multiple patties. Set aside in fridge and let chill for about half an hour so they hold together well.
Heat some oil in a skillet and place in turkey patties. Do a few at a time so they don’t touch. Cook for about 3 minutes per side on medium heat. Eat warm or use as part of a meal prep throughout the week!

These were refreshingly light and I am already envisioning other ways to use them in a dish. Carrot noodles…. lettuce burgers…!
I served this with my cranberry carrot wild rice. You can get that recipe here! The fall rice and turkey patty went perfectly together. Subtle hints of fruit made for a sweetly satisfying dinner.

I started eating healthy on my own a few years ago, around the time I started the blog. Shortly after I discovered the program 21 Day Fix and it COMPLETELY opened my eyes to clean eating. I learned how to control carbs, cut processed foods, not be so obsessed with sugar and so much more…. including how to become a meal prep pro! I now coach people through this program.
