For a milder flavor, use 1 teaspoon rosemary instead of the sage, black pepper and red pepper flakes. For an Italian flavor, try 1 teaspoon of basil and 1/2 teaspoon of fennel instead of the sage and red pepper flakes.

Serves 6

Ingredients:

       
  • 1/2 pound lean ground pork loin

  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey breast

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  •    
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Form the mixture into 12 patties. Spray a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the patties and cover.
