Nanci and I were together the other afternoon and decided to tackle these delicious patties. They are commonly made with beef, not turkey but as usual we wanted to try to make it a bit healthier but still taste delicious. I think they came out really good. Next time we will actually make the dough from scratch instead of using pre-made dough.
2 tablespoons of margarine
1 onion chopped
1 lb of ground turkey
2 teaspoons of curry powder
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup of chicken broth
1/4 cup of bread crumbs
2 ready made pie dough
1 beaten egg mixed with 1 teaspoon of curry powder or tumeric for color
Melt margarine in a skillet over medium heat.
Saute onion until soft and translucent.
Stir in ground turkey.
Season with curry powder, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Cook until turkey is evenly brown, stirring constantly.
Stir in chicken broth and bread crumbs.
Simmer until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat.
Set aside to cool a bit
Roll out pie dough and cut 6" circles using a glass bowl or a circle cutter. Spoon equal amounts of filling into each pastry circle. Fold over and press edges together, making a half circle.
Use a fork to press edges, and brush the top of each patty with beaten egg mixed with a little curry powder or tumeric for color. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
