Saucy Mozzarella Patties

I found this recipe at an online forum years ago and I have made it a million times since. These are kind of a cross between a meatloaf and a meatball. They are made with ground turkey, browned in a pan and then finished off in the oven. Before being baked, you top it with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan. YUM!!! I usually serve this with a salad and crusty bread, but you could also make any pasta to go along with it.


Saucy Mozzarella Patties

1 lb ground turkey
3 cups breadcrumbs, divided
1 egg
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder, to taste
Olive oil
Marinara sauce

Mix turkey and egg; add 1 cup breadcrumbs. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Combine ingredients until well blended. Heat butter and olive oil in pan. Put 2 cups breadcrumbs on plate. Take 1/3 cup of mixture and form into pattie. Press pattie into breadcrumbs. Cook in pan until both sides are browned. Transfer to flat baking dish. Spoon sauce onto each pattie, then top with cheese and more sauce.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Reminds me of chicken parm.

I'm going to give it a try! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'm always on the lookout for easy tasty recipes. My children love variety and don't like to eat the same thing twice in a month.
