Directions:
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for oil. Mix well. Shape into desired patty size. Heat a grill pan brushed with oil Brown patties over medium heat on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Cover and continue to grill 3 more minutes, until cooked through. Or in a saute pan, add just enough oil to coat a hot pan. Saute over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side to brown, decrease the heat and add a tablespoon of water. Cover to steam the inside, about 6 minutes. Try in pita pockets or on buns.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Fennel and Ginger are natural digestive aids and easy on the stomach, and if you use dark meat instead of white, you'll get 3 times more iron per serving. Patties can be individually wrapped and frozen for up to 3 months. This recipe was created by a nutritionalist for a cancer patient who loved hamburgers but had to cut out eating red meats and needed to find a tasty, healthy alternative to hamburger meat. Serenity and Kay really love these turkey burgers.
