Asian-inspired Turkey Rissoles

Perfect for your next camping trip, these Asian-inspired Turkey Rissoles are cooked in a skillet, packed with flavor, and easy to make. Often rolled in breadcrumbs or enclosed in a pastry, we’ve kept these simple without the coating. Alternatively, the mixture can be made into meatballs. 

Rissoles are similar to burger patties but are served as the meat part of a meal rather than in a hamburger bun. This version is made from turkey and Asian-inspired flavors including ginger, garlic, and cilantro. They are shallow-fried to cook them through and add moisture.

As the turkey is ground it is also a great option for using wild turkey meat that has been harvested on your last hunting trip. The grinding helps make the meat less tough and easy to eat if this is a concern. You can also use ground pork or chicken.
