Dive into a heartwarming meal with these Savory Turkey and Sausage Boulettes! Packed with protein, flavors, and a touch of love, they're perfect for any family dinner.


Step 1: Soaking Bread

Begin your cooking adventure by soaking a slice of bread in milk. This might seem like a small step, but it's crucial for achieving the tender texture we’re aiming for in our boulettes. Let the bread soak thoroughly until it's well saturated; this will make it easier to blend into your meat mixture later on. Trust me, this little trick makes a big difference!
Pro Tip: Ensure the bread is fully soaked for easier mixing.

Step 2: Cooking Veggies

Next, warm some oil in a large skillet and cook diced onion until it's soft and translucent. This is where things start to smell really good! After a few minutes, add sliced mushrooms and chopped parsley to the skillet. The mushrooms will release their juices, which, combined with onion and parsley, create a flavorful base for our boulettes. Let everything cook until the mushrooms are tender and the liquid has mostly evaporated.
Pro Tip: Cook the mushrooms until there's no liquid to ensure proper texture.

Step 3: Mixing the Meat

In a large bowl, combine ground turkey and sausage meat. These two meats bring their unique flavors and textures to our boulettes, making them irresistibly savory. To this meaty mixture, we'll also add an egg, grated Parmesan, dried sage, and our soaked, squeezed bread. The egg and bread act as binding agents, while the Parmesan and sage add depth to the flavor. Thoroughly mix these ingredients until well combined. It’s okay to get a little messy here; it's all part of the fun of home-cooking!
Pro Tip: Ensure even distribution of ingredients for consistent flavor in each boulette.

Step 4: Forming Boulettes

After letting your meat mixture rest in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to solidify, it's time to form those boulettes! With your hands, shape the mixture into individual patties. This is a great moment to involve kids or other family members in the cooking process. Roll each boulette in breadcrumbs for a crispy finish. There’s something genuinely therapeutic about forming these little boulettes, feeling the ingredients bond together, ready to be transformed into a delicious meal.
Pro Tip: Letting the mixture rest makes it easier to form boulettes.

Step 5: Cooking Boulettes

In a large skillet, heat some more oil and sauté your boulettes until they’re golden brown and cooked through, with no pink remaining. This step fills the kitchen with a mouth-watering scent, promising a delightful meal ahead. Cooking them to perfection ensures a crispy exterior with a juicy, tender interior. Once cooked, place them on paper towels to drain any excess oil, making them ready to serve!
Pro Tip: Don't overcrowd the skillet to ensure each boulette browns nicely.
