I made a couple changes but this is a flavorful and unique way to use up leftover turkey. First of all I used a product called Fryin' Magic instead of cornflakes. I spiced the recipe up by adding just a touch of chipotle to the stuffing mixture. I then made a chipotle mayo and served the patties on French bread instead of cooking them in the soup. Turned out great and didn't taste at all like Thanksgiving all over again. Read More

This reminds me of turkey and stuffing. I used grape nuts instead of corn flakes which was good. My Man liked this recipe but I really did not care for it. Read More

Really good! The kids loved it too. I did substitute half the breadcrumbs for cooked rice healthy alternative. I also greased a pan and baked at 385F for 15 minutes on each side to get it crisp instead of frying. Cranberry sauce on top - mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Read More

It's wonderfully flavored and a unique way to serve Turkey sometime during the week following having cooked a Turkey Dinner. I suggest freezing some of the gravey and then using it rather than the sauces suggessted. Read More

Good idea and it was helpful while trying to figure out what to do with my left over turkey but they were pretty bland and I don't like the soup part. I made some changes that I thought were good more turkey less bread crumbs I also added cheddar cheese when making the patties as well as some bacon. I used 1% milk instead of half and half and add some garlic to that mixture. I got rid of the soup baked them for 20 mins and made up a quick curry mayo to dip with. I thought this was great but everyone is different feel free to try out my changes. Read More

I made them larger for turkey burgers and left out the cream of chicken soup. This is my new go-to for left over turkey. Read More

I really liked this but very bland. I will add some herbs next time because it's a nice way to use up leftover turkey. I added sauteed sliced mushrooms to soup for the gravy. Read More

These were pretty good even my picky kids liked them! A few changes: saltines instead of breadcrumbs; added a little Adobo; 1% milk worked great in place of the half & half. Read More
