These gluten-free, dairy-free, Whole30, Paleo Butternut Squash and Cranberry Turkey BurgerFit patties are so easy to make and so delicious! It’s the perfect way to use those turkey and baked chicken leftovers! It can be hard to figure out what to make after you’ve already eaten enough turkey for the year, but what do you besides just freezing it? Answer: make these leftover turkey patties! You will be a superhero in your house for it – trust us! It is also a great way to use any leftover veggies, especially for those that are picky eaters! They will have no idea they are eating butternut squash and cranberries, and loving it!
I love eating my paleo butternut squash and cranberry turkey patties over a green salad with one of my jar shaken dressing recipes. My husband loves eating his in a pita and my 5-year-old loves eating his with a side of pickles and mustard. There are so many ways you can serve these and they all turn out amazing!
This recipe was made with both leftovers from my favorite Glazed Butternut Squash recipe and leftover turkey but you can use any leftover butternut squash you have or make it fresh!
When I cook these patties in the skillet, I usually use leftover bacon fat from cooking the bacon but you can easily use any cooking fat that you prefer to cook with: coconut oil, avocado oil, rendered lard, tallow, etc.
Even though I used the Koops’ Original Yellow Mustard, you can use almost any of the Koops’ Mustards! Some other ones that I think would be great in this Paleo Butternut Squash and Cranberry Turkey BurgerFit Patties recipe are:
If I told my son that he was eating butternut squash, he wouldn’t eat them. That’s why I don’t tell him. -Alane
