This idea came to me at work, because sometimes I think of things other than what I am doing (or supposed to be). I usually think about food. Of course it doesn't help that an avid foodie (hi Alli) sits in the cubicle across from me. This new recipe is a combination of stuff in my fridge and a "Big Bite" from Guy's Fieri's show on the Food Network.
Prosciutto Wrapped Italian Turkey Patties
(Please excuse the name...I got nothin.)
- 1 pound of low fat ground turkey
- 1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup spinach
- Prosciutto (enough to wrap each patty)
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Eggland's Best Egg
I also purchased the prosciutto at World Market.
To make the patty mix the turkey burger, chopped spinach, chopped sun dried tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder together.
Form small patty's together in the palms of your hands (I used a clean coffee scoop to measure the patties). Then, slice your prosciutto lengthwise in half and wrap around each patty. I actually didn't make all the patties with prosciutto, as I wasn't sure how they would turn out. I recommend with the prosciutto.
I got the idea to wrap the turkey with the prosciutto from an episode of "Guy's Big Bite" where he ate dove wrapped in bacon. The bacon helps to prevent the bird from drying out. I figured, turkey is usually dry, maybe this will help...It did.
Fry the patties until cooked through. Cover the patties to keep warm, while you fry the polenta. I have never eaten polenta, nor cooked it. The package said that 2 1/2 slices of polenta was one serving and that you could basically heat it up however you wanted to.
For a sauce I just used some Hunts stewed tomatoes, garlic and basil. I honestly felt like the tomato chunks were too much. A pured sauce would have been better.
Serve with the polenta on the bottom, tomato sauce and the patty on top. Garnish with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and some sliced spinach (basil would have been fabulous!).
There you have it folks, another new recipe...by me!
Oh and by the way, Maddie wanted to say hi, and she wanted me to tell you she loves her baby. :)
