I’ve got a delicious recipe for you and it’s quite simple to make once you’ve gotten past grating the onions. :)

The best dishes are the recipes you get from friends. I had a photoshoot with a friend one day and she prepared this for lunch. It took 15 minutes for her to whip this up. Ofcourse, the meat was already seasoned and prepared ahead of time and so was the topping. This could be served with flat bread (lavash or pita) or rice.

Ground Turkey kebabs

1-lb ground turkey meat (I mixed dark and white)

1-tsp salt (or to taste)

pepper to taste

1/2 grated onion (yes grated)

1 egg

Mix the egg, onion, salt and pepper. Add the ground turkey and mix well. (I put on disposable gloves and used my hand to mash the meat into the seasoning)

Add a swirl of oil on a non-stick skillet. Add the mound of seasoned ground turkey.

Set on medium high. Now, my onions were too juicy and it started to water a lot. You can choose to soak up the sides with some paper towel so it would brown the bottom better.

When the disk of turkey is almost cooked, cut it into sections, let it cook a bit more and then flip.
