Blueberry + Turkey Breakfast Bites

I have so many reasons for loving this recipe. Normally, one would use an egg and bread crumbs as a binder to hold patties together, but I swapped both of those for a flax egg. Using just a single protein in a meal reduces metabolic waste, and flax adds fibre so…bonus!!

This recipe is versatile. I used blueberries and thyme from my garden, but apple and ginger would be a fab combo to try.

Double or triple this recipe to batch cook a whole bunch as they freeze really well. Pop a couple out when you’re gearing up for breakfast, or serve them alongside a salad for lunch. Either way, get ready for delicious bursts of blueberry and satisfying lean protein that will fuel you for hours. Here is what you need:


  • 1 package of lean, ground turkey
  • 1 C frozen or fresh blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • sprinkle of sea salt and pepper
  • olive or coconut oil for frying


  • Add water to ground flaxen let sit for 10 minutes to thicken (this becomes your egg replacement)
  • Add turkey, blueberries, herbs, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl and stir together
  • Pour in flax “egg” and combine well into mixture
  • Form into 8-10 patties
  • Fry for apron 8 mins on each side, or until cooked through
