Turkey Potato Pattie Pie

November 27, 2012

It is always hard to decide what to make with the ‘turkey’ leftovers but this one is good for any meal of the day.  The recipe is really for ‘patties’ but when it is more than 3 people I generally opt for this pie, which is really a giant pattie.  But leave it to an Irish lady to use all the potatoes.  Here is South Florida our herb gardens are thriving and make each meal a bit more special.  Use this same recipe for individual patties or croquettes (except cooking time), oh you knew that.

Turkey Potato Pattie Pie


  • 2 Lg. Eggs
  • 2 C. Cooked Turkey (diced)
  • 1/4 C. Breadcrumbs (or Parmesan Cheese)
  • 1 Bunch (5-7) Scallions (chopped)
  • Handful Fresh Parsley (snipped)
  • 3-4 Fresh Sage Leaves (snipped)
  • Handful Fresh Chives (snipped)
  • 1 t. Fresh Thyme (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 C. Mashed Potatoes
  • 2 t. Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper (to taste)
  • 2 T. Canola Oil


  1. In a large bowl beat the eggs to combine; add the turkey, Parmesan cheese, scallions, parsley, sage, chives, thyme and mix together thoroughly/add the mashed potatoes and Dijon mustard and combine again; salt and pepper to taste
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a pan; when medium hot add the pattie mixture and smooth to the size of the pan; heat about 15 min. to brown the bottom
  3. Invert on a plate/add a bit more oil or butter and slide the pattie back into pan and cook another 15 minutes
  4. Remove from heat and plate on a warmed ‘chop plate’ and garnish with fresh parsley leaves * (**)

* Pass some turkey gravy and the cranberry sauce too

** Put an egg on it for breakfast

Serves 4-8
