Ingredient 6 servings 50 servings
medium grain brown rice 1/2 cup 4 cups
vegetable oil 1 T 1/2 cup
yellow onions, minced 2 T 1 cup
garlic, minced 1 sm clove 1/4 cup
celery, washed and minced 1 small stalk 1 head
lean ground turkey 16 oz 8 lbs.
dried cranberries, rough chopped 2 T 1 cup
spinach leaf, well washed, drained, stems removed, chopped 3/4 cup 6 cups
eggs 2 large 16 large
salt 1/2 tsp 4 tsp
black pepper 1/2 tsp 4 tsp
Worschestershire Sauce 1 tsp 8 tsp
crushed red pepper 1 scant pinch 1 tsp


For Sandwiches: 12/96 small multigrain or whole grain rolls Tomato, sliced Red Onion, thinly sliced (optional) Condiments – your choice

Instructions: 1. Wash and sanitize hands, utensils and all equipment to be used. 2. To cook rice: follow package instructions for cooking brown rice. When cooked, transfer to a plate and cool completely in refrigerator. This can be done up to a full day ahead. 3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 4. In a skillet sauté onions, celery and garlic in oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Transfer to refrigerator and cool completely. 5. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients including cooked rice and cooked onion mixture and mix well. 6. Portion into 2.5 oz patties the diameter of buns onto a parchment lined baking pan. Bake at 350F for 12-18 minutes (time will vary depending on oven. Use a thermometer to check starting at 12 minutes) until turkey is at an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Avoid overcooking – the lean turkey will dry out if cooked too long. 7. Serve on mini whole grain rolls with optional lettuce, tomato, red onion and condiments.
