Smokey Garlic & Mushroom Turkey Patties

Sharing is caring!

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free and most are dairy free. I have revamped my diet to improve my health. Welcome to all who have found my blog. I want my food to not only taste good but to be something you crave. I also believe that food needs to look beautiful and smell divine. I am a person that eats with my eyes. Therefore my food needs to appeal to the eye as well as the taste buds. Some of my recipes take a long time to make others are fast and easy.

I was asked where my recipes come from. I pray a lot for inspiration. Some days I am not sure what to make. So I guess you could say sometimes a recipe just comes to me from out of the blue or from a more heavenly source. Sometimes a recipe or idea comes to fruition weeks after thinking about it. Sometimes I make it several times and feel it still needs more tweaking. I tweak and tweak until I feel it’s finally right. Sometimes I get really frustrated with a recipe that it may be awhile before I try improving it again. For example, I use to grind my own wheat flour before making bread.

This was one of my very first recipes that I came up with when I went grain free. I was looking for something similar to Swedish meatballs and a bbq flavor. I add smoked paprika and hickory liquid smoke. It makes it taste like the meat has sat in a smoker for hours. This is one of my favorite meals to make. Make with mashed potatoes, cauliflower rice, Carrots and Turnip mash or Turnip Mash.

This recipe contains the pattie recipe as well as a mushroom gravy recipe.

*Nutritional Facts are without the gravy.

1 lb ground turkey

1 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped mushrooms

1 clove garlic

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon coconut aminos 

1 teaspoon liquid hickory smoke

3 teaspoons Nevada Sauce

2 tablespoons Garlicky Onion Seasoning

2 teaspoons avocado oil

Heat avocado oil in a large frying pan on medium heat until oil is hot. Add onions, mushrooms, garlic, and fry until mushrooms are golden brown. Remove from heat. Allow onion mixture to cool. Once cool add onion mixture to ground turkey. Add smoked paprika, balsamic vinegar, coconut aminos, liquid hickory smoke, Nevada Sauce, and Garlic Onion Seasoning to the ground turkey and onions. Blend together with your hands as you would do with meatballs. Blend until well combined. Form small patties. Heat the frying pan that you fried the onions mixture in. Allow pan to get hot before adding the patties. Add the patties and cook approximately 5 minutes per side.

If you would like mushroom gravy to go on top then follow the remaining instructions. Preheat oven to 250. If you want to make gravy place patties into a dish to keep the patties warm while you make gravy.

Mushroom Gravy

2 teaspoons avocado oil

1 cup sliced onions

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

3 -6 cups chicken broth (homemade or store-bought)

1 teaspoon Nevada Sauce

1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon liquid hickory smoke

1 teaspoon coconut aminos

1/2 teaspoon pink salt

2 tablespoons tapioca flour

5 tablespoons water


Heat avocado oil on medium heat in the frying pan you fried up the Smokey Garlic Patties. Allow oil and pan to get hot. Fry up sliced onions and mushrooms until golden brown. Add chicken broth to the cooked onions and mushrooms. Add Nevada Sauce, Paprika, balsamic vinegar, liquid hickory smoke, coconut aminos, and pink salt. Stir until well combined. Take a spoon and taste gravy if it needs salt or pepper adjust. Place tapioca into a cup and add cold water. Stir to make a slurry. Once the slurry is made pour and stir while pouring into the chicken broth mixture. Continue stirring until thickened. If you have placed Smokey Garlic Patties into the oven remove and place them into the gravy. Once they have been covered in gravy turn the heat off and serve. Serve with mashed potatoes, riced cauliflower, or rice.
