I will try to get some good stuff in here for diabetics for the holidays. Turkey is SUCH a good start!

Combine well the turkey, salt, pepper, sage, thyme, ginger, nutmeg, Calvados, and orange zest in a bowl.
Spray a non stick skillet with cooking spray and sauté a small bit of sausage mixture to test for seasoning. Correct if necessary. Form the remainder into 6 patties, about 1/2 inch thick, and sauté until browned on both sides and cooked through. Serve hot from the pan.
