I tried this as written, did some baked and some with the outside dipped in panko. The panko added a much needed crunch to these.. The ones without the panko, even fried ones never got crunchy. Make sure you add lots of salt and pepper

This recipe has potential, but it needs a lot of doctoring. It is very bland as written, much like eating plain shredded turkey. I think next time I'll try adding some onion and seasoning salt to the mixture. Maybe some cheese. It's a good base recipe, and I think anyone could have some fun experimenting with different ingredients.
