Ground Turkey Sausage Patties

I tried a new recipe this week that we liked and it’s healthy. It reminded us of very mild sausage and was tasty. (Our son thought it was beef.)

1 lb ground turkey

1/2-3/4 cup chopped onion

4 garlic cloves or 2 tsp chopped garlic (I used the kind in a jar)

1 cup instant oatmeal

1/4 cup skim milk (I used 1%)

1 egg

3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

2 tsp basil

1/2 tsp thyme

1/2 tsp oregano

salt & freshly ground black pepper

Mix and form into patties. Cook in a little bit of olive oil in a skillet until done.

(For an even healthier version, spray a loaf pan with cooking spray, press mixture into pan, cover with foil and bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 5/10 minutes until the top is brown and the center’s not pink. I haven’t tried this yet.)
