  • Entree
  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast

  • 1 Tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoon red pepper flakes

How to make it:
  1. Mix all together.
  2. Form into 3 ounce patties (will cook down to 2 ounce portions). Freezes well.

    As an alternative I sometimes substitute the apple, brown sugar and maple syrup for mushrooms and poultry seasoning for a less sweet sausage.
