mmm very good flavour! i could not get them into small patties, so i did one big one!! Turned it over into another frypan to brown the other side, it worked great, but when i went to transfer to plates one side broke up, but all in all it didn't matter, it tasted wonderful and the sauce was a great tasting finish. I used sliced turkey cut up and had no green pepper, just had red pepper, everything else as written.  I wouldn't hesitate to make it again, but next time i will finish it under the broiler instead of flipping it. Thanks for posting.

I will definitely be making this again - even if I don't have any leftover meat! I don't really care for celery, so just left it out completely but I think for my tastes water chestnuts would have been a good substitute that I will probably try next time. I also departed from Bergy's recipe a bit in that I sauteed the onions, mushrooms, and pepper first to soften them slightly before stirring in the egg and seasonings. Just make sure that they have cooled some so that you don't end up with scrambled egg before it gets in the skillet! :)
