      1/3  cup           bread crumbs
      1/3  cup           milk
    1 1/4  teaspoons     salt
    1                    egg
    1                    egg white
      1/3  cup           heavy cream
    1      tablespoon    vegetable oil
    1      pound         ground turkey
      1/4  bunch         cilantro -- finely chopped
    8      slices        rye bread
    8      slices        Monterey Jack cheese
    8      slices        tomato
 
 In a medium skillet place the bacon fat and heat it on medium until it is hot.
Saute the onions and garlic for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the onions are tender.
Let the vegetables cool (about 10-15 mins.) and then puree them
 
 In a LARGE BOWL place the jalapeno Chile peppers, bread crumbs, milk, salt, and
pureed onions. Gently mix the ingredients together so that they are well blended.
 
 In a MEDIUM BOWL place the egg, egg white, and heavy cream. Whisk the ingredients
together.
 
 Continuing with medium bowl, add the oil and ground turkey, and mix them in with
your hands. Add the cilantro and mix it in. Add the bread crumb mixture, and mix
it in well with your hands. Shape the meat mixture into 8 patties that are the
size of the bread slices.
 
 Preheat the oven to 350°. Place the patties in a baking; pan and BAKE them for 10
MINS on each side, or until they are firm.
 
 On each slice of the bread place a slice of cheese and tomato. Place the bread
slices under a preheated BROILER until the cheese melts.
 
 Place one baked sausage patty on top of each grilled bread piece. Top it with the
Southwestern Slaw. Serve the Black Bean relish on the side.

 “Once you get all of the ingredients gathered, this is very easy to put
together.” The restaurant serves sausage links.  This recipe is simpler. “When
you are ready to form the patties ... coat your hands with some oil.” --
