1 pound ground turkey breast

4 teaspoons sugar-free pancake syrup

1/2 teaspoon dried sage

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 large beefsteak tomato, cut into 4 slices

4 (1-ounce) slices reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Heat oven to broil. Combine turkey, syrup, sage, cayenne, salt, pepper, and ginger in a mixing bowl and mix well. Divide into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cook patties until well browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat.
Place tomato slices in a single layer in a baking dish; season with salt and pepper. Top each slice with 1 turkey patty and 1 cheese slice; broil until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Serve hot.
