Turkey Sausage Patties

1.25 lb ground turkey (get the regular lean kind, not the all white meat kind)
1 small onion, finely diced
1 roasted bell pepper, finely diced
cilantro, Thai basil, and Italian parsley - about 5 tbsp all together minced finely
3 cloves of garlic, minced up with the herbs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
some freshly ground pepper


Chop everything really fine and mix it up in a big bowl. If you have a food processor you could chop everything but the meat in there, but a knife and a cutting board works just fine. Make about a dozen patties, 2 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick.

Spray a large nonstick skillet with oil and cook the patties over medium heat, turning once until cooked through (about 15 minutes). Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
