This is a recipe I got from BHG.com.

Turkey Salisbury Steaks

1 lb. ground turkey, uncooked
1 envelope beefy onion soup mix, divided
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, divided
2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp butter
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced (8 oz. pkg)
¾ cup beef broth
¼ cup dry red wine
¼ cup tomato paste
Fresh thyme leaves (optional)

Combine turkey, 2 tbsp of the soup mix, and 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce and mix well. Shape into 4 oval patties about ½” thick.

In skillet cook patties in hot oil over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until browned; turning once. Remove; set aside. In hot skillet cook garlic in butter 30 seconds. Add mushrooms. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Add broth, wine, tomato paste, and remaining Worcestershire sauce and soup mix. Stir, scraping up browned bits. Return patties to skillet; spoon sauce over. Cover; cook over medium-low heat for 8 minutes or until patties are 160°. Sprinkle with thyme.

Makes 4 servings.

*A note about the nutrition info: It was calculated using chicken broth instead of beef broth. I wasn't sure what changes that would make, so I just left it. It will still give you a rough idea of the nutritional values.

So these don't photograph very well because they are dark in color, but they are super tasty. And really easy to throw together. The only thing I changed about the original recipe is that I used beef broth instead of chicken broth. I changed it because I thought beef broth went better with mushrooms, red wine, and tomato paste. It was really good that way.

The original recipe called for serving it with a white bean mash, but I'm not a big fan of beans and served it with mashed potatoes instead. My husband said that if he hadn't already known, he wouldn't have thought this was turkey instead of beef.
