1 tsp whole fennel seed
1 tsp dried rubbed sage
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp allspice
1 lb ground dark meat turkey (93% lean)
1 Tbsp olive oil
Whisk together the spices, sprinkle over the turkey and blend it in evenly using clean hands/wooden spoon, being careful not to over-mix. Form the mixture into 8 patties that are about 3-4″ across.
Heat half the oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, add half the patties, cooking until nicely browned on the outside and cooked through (about 3 minutes/side). Transfer to a plate; repeat with the remaining patties.
Serve in breakfast sandwiches with English muffins, eggs and cheese.
