Turkey Burger "Drumsticks"

This is a totally fun, easy and yummy recipe that I found in my Rachael Ray mag! It was a big hit with the whole time I'll have some dipping sauce for everyone, maybe BBQ sauce or Ranch or something like that. You could also play around with seasonings to change it up.

Turkey Burger "Drumsticks"

1 lb. ground turkey
1 5 oz can evaporated milk
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cups crushed cornflakes
2 ounces medium-hard cheese (I used sharp cheddar)

In a bowl, mix the turkey, 1/4 cup evaporated milk, the onion and 2/3 cup cornflakes. Season with salt & pepper. Divide into 12 portions. Cut the cheese into 12 small sticks and thread on each of 12 skewers. Wet your hands with evaporated milk then mold a portion of meat around each cheese piece, shaping it into 3-inch ovals. Pour remaining milk into a bowl. Add remaining cornflakes to a plate. Dip each "drumstick" into the milk, then coat with cornflakes. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and fry each drumstick until browned, about 12 minutes.
***You could also easily grill these on a BBQ or bake in the oven - just make sure to soak bamboo skewers in water beforehand.
