      1/4   bn           Cilantro -- finely chopped
    8       sl           Rye bread
    8       sl           Monterey Jack cheese
    8       sl           Tomato
                         Southwestern Slaw
                         Black Bean Relish
   In a medium skillet place the bacon fat and heat it on medium until it is
   hot.  Add the onions and garlic, and sauté them for 4 to 5 minutes, or
   until the onions are tender.  Let the vegetables cool and then purée them.
   In a large bowl place the jalapeño chile peppers, bread crumbs, milk, salt,
   and puréed 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. 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°F.
   Place the patties in a baking pan and bake them for 10 minutes 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 has melted. 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.
