  • Author: Melissa Cookston

  • Yield: 4 patty melts 1x


Make an amazing turkey melt with this recipe featuring my new Woo Woo Sauce and Cajun Garlic Sauce.  Don’t worry if you don’t have those, just substitute as needed (see instructions.) Flavorful and filling, with a little planning, this is an easy recipe to fill some hungry tummies with deliciousness!



1 lb ground turkey

3 TBS Melissa’s Woo Woo Sauce

2 TBS finely diced onions

2 TBS finely diced red bell pepper

1 TBS Melissa’s Cajun Garlic Sauce

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

8 slices your favorite cheese, recommend cheddar,  provolone, or pepper jack

8 slices thick cut bread/Texas toast

For the Caramelized Onions

23 medium onions, sliced into rings

2 TBS butter

2 tsp Melissa’s Garlic Blend, or your favorite all-purpose seasoning

½ TBS brown sugar

1 tsp salt

For the Woo Woo Aioli

1/2 cup mayo

3 TBS Melissa’s Woo Woo sauce

1 tsp Grillin’ Shake, or salt and pepper to taste


For the onions

Cut onions in half, then slice in half rings.  Heat butter in a skillet, then add onions and cook, stirring occasionally.  After 10 minutes, sprinkle on salt and brown sugar.  Continue to cook for up to 30-45 minutes, adding water a tsp at a time if necessary to keep them from drying out.  Finished onions will look golden, transparent, and will taste sweet.  This can be done up to a week in advance if they are refrigerated.

For the Worcestershire Aioli

In a small mixing bowl, add mayo, Woo Woo Sauce, and Grilling Shake.  Stir and set aside.  May be done 2 days in advance if refrigerated.

For the Turkey melt-

Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly.  Form into 4 balls, roll tightly, then hand press out into a burger shape.

Heat a griddle or cast iron skillet to medium high.  Add just a dash of high heat oil, such as canola or grapeseed oil.  Place patties on skillet and press down to form about 1/2″ to 3/4″ thick patties.  Sear 3-4 minutes, then flip over.  Remove when they reach 165 degrees.

Wipe out skillet, add 2 TBS salted butter, then place down toast slices 4 at a time.  put a slice of cheese on each piece of bread, add approximately 1/4 cup of onions to two of the slices, and a TBS of the aioli to the other two slices.  Place patties on the slices with onions, then put the slices with aioli on them on top of them.  Press a bit with a spatula.  Cook until both sides are toasted, turning when necessary.  Remove and repeat for remaining  patties and toast.  Serve
