For Lili: making poultry burgers
Lili-here are my ingredients tonight: in the bowl, I grated 1 large carrot, added buttered toast from bfst that someone didn't want and some buttered bread as a snack (same issue)-both were whirled together in the food processor to make crumbs, 1 egg, white worcestershire sauce, black pepper, Mrs Dash table ready, dried minced onion, 3 mushrooms that also took a spin in the food processor. I blended this all together first, then gently folded the 1 lb pkg of ground chicken.
Let the mixture rest.
Pam spray a skillet and place your formed patties in it. I could have easily made these 5, but college boy opted out of dinner.
Once first side is golden, flip the patties
Cover and steam cook the second side
The patties get puffy, and very juicy!
Flip again, cover again for a few more minutes to give the first side more color, as needed.
I even used the warmth of the cast iron lid to "steam" the defrosted buns.
