  • 2 pounds ground turkey

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried sage

  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Mix ground turkey, black pepper, salt, sage, ginger, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl until well blended. Form mixture into 8 equal-sized patties.

  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; coat with nonstick spray.

  3. Add patties and fry until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


Increase cayenne and black pepper if you like more of a punch. Thyme may be substituted for sage, or use both.
