turkey sausage patties

My favorite ground meat is definitely turkey: a lean, mean, flavor-melding machine. Ground turkey is a great heart-healthy substitute for any recipe that calls for ground beef really. As long as turkey is spiced correctly, you could trick any beef lover into thinking any chili or even this sausage is nice 'n beefy.

Ingredients (adapted from this for 8 patties):
2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp hot chili flakes
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp herbs de provence
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 lb ground turkey
4 tsp maple syrup
2 tbs olive oil

1. Crush & combine all herbs and spices in a medium-sized bowl. 

2. Mix in the turkey & maple syrup until evenly combined.

3. Heat olive oil over med-high heat in a nonstick skillet. Form multiple patties and push down to make thin. Cook on one side for 2 minutes and then flip.

4. Cook for another 4 minutes.

5. Place patties on tin foiled-baking sheet and keep warm in preheated oven of 325F while you make egg sandwiches or the remainder of the meal.

6. Once finished completing the remainder of the dish (I made an egg & cheddar sandwich drizzled in more syrup), add delicious sausage and enjoy!
