  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • red pepper flakes, as desired
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • additional lard, for frying

  1. Add the ground turkey and 2 tbsp melted lard to a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix together.
  2. In a separate small bowl, add the fennel, garlic powder, black pepper, sage, salt, and onion powder and mix to combine.
  3. Sprinkle the seasonings over the pork and mix to combine. Form the pork into 8 equal sized patties.
