Meal Idea Mondays: Turkey Patties

Meal Idea Mondays: Turkey Patties by Custom Taste
 As we mentioned in an earlier post, we make a lot of burgers, and this is one is probably one of our favourites. It is moist, egg-less and super easy to make and can be used for anything you need meat for.  They are essentially low calorie and low fat and obviously loaded with protein so if you are like us and starting a new intensive workout routine these are a welcome treat.
