Pear, Ginger and Turkey Patties

ground turkey burgers patties

Although we have been following a Paleo diet for many years, we haven’t been able to heal my husband’s eczema. We recently started following the protocol outlined in the eBook, The Eczema Cure. We have had tremendous success with this approach. His eczema was nearly cleared up within the first week. This is the best that I have seen his skin in years!

This protocol has been so helpful; I can’t say enough good things about it. However, it is recommended that you eliminate peppers in the first phase. That part has been so difficult for us! I love to add kick to most dishes. I have had to abandon my favorite spices and get creative in the kitchen lately. These ground turkey breakfast patties have become our new go-to for breakfasts, quick snacks or even a light lunch!

The pear gives these patties a slight hint of sweetness, while the ginger adds some zest.  These patties are easy enough to make for a weekday breakfast, but elegant enough for a weekend brunch! Pair them with my Pomegranate and Fennel Salad for a festive meal.

The Players

The How-To

  1. Pulse pear in a food processor until it is smooth. In a medium bowl, combine turkey, pear, garlic, ginger, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  2. Shape mixture into small patties by rolling them into a ball in the palm of your hand and then flattening them. The mixture should make about 10 patties.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a heavy bottomed pan, like cast iron. Add enough patties, so they are not crowded in the pan. You will have to cook these in two batches.
  4. Cook them for 4-5 minutes on the first side, until lightly browned and the patty lifts from the pan easily. Flip and cook them on the second side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are browned on both sides and no longer pink inside. Move cooked patties to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add more coconut oil if needed and cook the second batch of patties.
  6. Enjoy!

    These sound scrumptious and I will be trying them after Christmas, or even sooner with chicken, which I’ll probably roast sometime between now and Christmas.
