  • 20 ounces ground turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (or black pepper to keep mild)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Heat a small pan over medium-heat and gently toast fennel seeds until fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Coarsely grind seeds using mortar and pestle (or back of your spoon on a cutting board.) 
  • In a medium bowl, combine crushed fennel seeds with ground turkey, maple syrup, salt and cayenne. Mix well then form into eight small, round patties.
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry patties for 3-4 minutes per side or until turkey is cooked through. Serve warm.
