1 small onion, finely chopped
½ cup coarse fresh bread crumbs
5 Tbs. vegetable or olive oil, divided
¼ tsp. grated nutmeg
¼ tsp cinnamon
3 Tbs. milk
2 lb. ground dark-meat turkey
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
⅛ tsp. ground cloves
2 large egg yolks


Preheat oven to 250°F.

Cook onion in 1 Tbs. oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, stir together bread crumbs and milk in a large bowl and let stand 5 minutes.

Add onion to crumbs (reserve skillet), then add turkey, nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne, cloves, yolks, 2 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. black pepper and combine well.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Form 24 (2-inch wide) patties (about ½ inch thick) with damp hands and arrange on sheet.

Heat 1 Tbs. oil in skillet over medium heat until hot, then cook patties in batches, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, about 8 minutes per batch. Drain briefly on paper towels, then keep warm in a baking pan, loosely covered with foil, in oven. Wipe out skillet and add 1 Tbs. oil between batches.


You can substitute 2 lb. ground pork (not lean) for the turkey.

Patties can be formed but not cooked up to 1 day ahead and chilled.

Cooked patties can be kept warm in the oven for up to 30 minutes.
