  • 2 tsp. Butter
  • 3 Scallions chopped
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp. Garlic minced
  • 2 sprigs fresh Thyme
  • 1/8 tsp. Kosher Salt or Sea Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Red Chili Pepper


  • 2 Tbsp. Organic Plain Yogurt
  • 4 FL Oz Heavy Whipped Cream/or Half and Half
  • Salt to taste

Turkey Patty:

  • 1 lbs. 453g Ground Turkey
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 onion shredded or minced
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil


  • Chopped Chives OR Scallions green part


  1. First, in the large mixing bowl add ground turkey and season it. It can be in the fridge covered overnight. Make patties and cook in the frying pan with a few tbsp of oil, or grill it. It's done when it is golden on the outside, and the internal temperature of the turkey patty is at least 165° F, to kill potentially harmful bacteria. Once patties are done the cooking, set them aside. Read NOTES**
  2. In the saute pan, or frying pan, add butter and let the butter slightly melt. Add chopped scallions, stir for a few seconds, then add minced garlic. Stir-fry for a minute or so, then add washed and sliced mushrooms and thyme leaves. Season with salt, black pepper, and red chili pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium-high temperature, stir-frying it to prevent from burning.
  3. Meanwhile, mix ingredients for the sauce. Pour over the mushrooms and turn down the heat on low, let it cook for 15 more minutes. Make sure to mix sauce and watch closely, do not cover it will bubble up. Once the sauce thickened and it's reduced to almost half, add cooked/grilled patties. Turn patties few times while the sauce is bubbling, before turning off the heat. Cover with the fitted lid and serve hot with rice, potatoes or macaroni.

Recipe Notes

You do not have to make a mixture for the Turkey Patties. You can use the shortcuts, brand suggestions: Ballpark, Purdue, Jenny O, etc. -Frozen (thaw first) or already made patties, ready to cook/grill. It is your choice which brand you prefer. Also, you can ADD Beef, Chicken, or Lamb. I added 4 thick patties, however, you can make smaller sized patties. Serving size: it should be for 4 people if you have sides. Turkey Seasoning: This is not a burger, if it's for a burger, usually I'd add sage and thyme to the meat mixture, as well as panko breadcrumbs and an egg. Since we are adding it in the sauce, it is just little seasoning for the meat, so it wouldn't be plain patty. Sour Cream would not work for this, although it will not have a bad outcome, it just will not look, nor taste the same. Yogurt: I am in LOVE with the "Stony Field-Organic". It is a bit pricey comparing it to the other brands, but it tastes fantastic. It is usually stored in the health/organic part of the grocery store.
