Turkey Shapes Whatever You Want To Call Them

Get the kids involved with this one. You can make burgers, meatballs, or something inbetween and give them a new name. Whatever you decide upon they taste great and give fantastic taste to what can sometimes be a dry and tasteless choice of meat.

1 Onion
1 clove garlic
Knob of butter
Cubed pancetta 80g
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, stripped from stalks and chopped
Turkey mince 500g
oil for frying
250ml Chicken stock

1. Peel both onion and garlic, chop finely, and soften in the butter in a pan on gentle to medium heat. You don't want them browned or burnt, just nicely translucent and soft.
2. Add the pancetta and rosemary; fry for a couple of minutes. Spoon contents of pan into a bowl to cool a little.
3. Mix the turkey with the mixture into desired shape. Season with black pepper and a little salt. Leave for 20min.
4. Set oven to 190C/Gas 5, or 170C fan oven.
5. Heat a non-stick frying pan with a little oil, and fry turkey shapes until lightly golden all over.
6. Transfer to an ovenproof dish, pour hot stock over, put on lid, and cook for 25-30min.
7. Serve on bed of greens of choice. I put a bed of baby spinach in a bowl, put the turkey shapes on top and spooned over some of the stock.
