  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme (or less dried thyme)
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Mix ground meat with the thyme, zest, and sea salt well and form into small round patties. (think flat sliders) You should have approx. 8 or so and the flatter you make them, the fast they'll cook.

  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a sauté pan and add your patties (you may need to do in batches). Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Store away for a week or serve with your favorite veggies, salad, or however you'd like them!
