  • Place breadcrumbs into a bowl with soy sauce and milk, mix with fingers until the bread is completely broken up and no lumps remain. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Add egg and mix well, then add turkey and garlic, folding gently with your hands until the liquid is evenly incorporated. Form small patties one inch in diameter.
