Directions

  1. In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook carrots and onion until tender and golden, about 5 min. Stir in garlic and cook 1 min. Set aside to cool.

  2. In a bowl, use your hands to combine the turkey, egg, parsley, breadcrumbs, chili sauce and the cooled onion mixture until just blended. Do not overwork or the mixture will become tough when cooked. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape each into a thick patty, about 3 in. (8 cm) across. Wrap a slice of bacon around the edge of each patty. To freeze, wrap individual patties in plastic wrap and store in a resealable plastic freezer bag.

  3. Remove plastic wrap from frozen patties and place them on a greased, rimmed baking sheet and bake in a preheated 375°F (190°C) oven until cooked through and patties reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C), 40 to 45 min. If baking from fresh, cook 35 to 40 min. Serve with baked sweet potatoes and steamed broccolini, if desired.

Tip

The addition of grated carrot to the mix is a smart way to work in veggies, while bacon helps keep the patties moist while frozen. NOTE: Total Time: 1 hour, 5 min. (from frozen); 1 hour (from fresh).
