• 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sage
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 Combine all ingredients (use less pepper if you don't want a spicy taste) and blend well.
  • 2 If time permits, refrigerate overnight to let the meat absorb the flavor of the spices.
  • 3 Form into patties and cook as needed, freezing leftovers.
  • 4 Don't overcook or they will dry out–remove from the heat as soon as they're no longer pink inside, but still juicy. (if you prefer a moister texture, you add a splash of olive oil or an egg to the mixture just prior to cooking).
