Comfort food with a capital C! Yet, a much healthier, quick and easy version made with lean ground turkey; filled with all of the same goodness of Mom’s version, but with fresh herbs, sliced portabellas and a kiss of spice.

Ingredients:

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1/3 cup onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup bread crumbs 

1 tablespoon minced fresh Italian herbs or 1 teaspoon dry

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon allspice

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour or arrowroot powder

2 ½ cups chicken broth

1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

Gently mix turkey, egg, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, herbs, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl using your hands. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into oval patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the patties, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Add 1 tablespoon butter to skillet. saute mushrooms until slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, allspice, salt and pepper to taste, scraping up any browned bits. Sprinkle in flour and stir, then stir in 2 1/2 cups warmed chicken broth and simmer until sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter, swirling to combine.
