Crisp turkey cutlets, stuffed with fresh herbs, ginger, garlic & mashed potatoes, make a sumptuous treat, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside! My Sunday Supper team is doing a “Thanksgiving leftovers” theme – so here’s my fav turkey cutlet recipe. Love the theme, by the way!! Everyone has Thanksgiving leftovers – right ? and thinking up creative ways to use them is one big challenge. Plus, Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year. A time to give thanks for “All” that we have in our lives, the good, the bad and the “wish I had”! Personally this year has been an eventful year – the year I started my blog and found a way to unleash some creativity through my recipes and Nutrition rants! Who knew blogging could be such fun! I`ve met some wonderful bloggers and friends along the way including my awesome Sunday Supper Team who are such a source of inspiration to me. My family – my guinea pigs – thanks for eating it all (!!!) I am eternally grateful to you. I’ve also had my share of events that I was not too crazy about. But, I am thankful knowing that the good far outweighs the bad, that adversities only make us stronger, that living and having reasonable good health is a big blessing in itself! Yep, so much to be thankful for! These cutlets are a favorite in my home! They are easy to make and you can make them bite size or larger. My kids like them small so I usually go for the bite size. I use red potatoes – simply because I like them. I spice up my cutlets with ginger, garlic and pepper. I have also added some finely chopped red onion, fresh cilantro, mint and basil. These ingredients add so much texture and flavor to the turkey cutlet, taking it from good to um…. super special! Toss the cutlets in some breadcrumbs and pop them into the oven for a crisp treat. You can also fry them, but make sure you drain well on paper towels. You can make this cutlet with any ground meat. It tastes so good. Pair it with my Mint Cilantro Chutney or my Cranberry Chutney to add some pizzazz to the turkey cutlet! You can make these cutlets all year around!
Nutrition Wise !
Turkey is a good source of lean protein. It is a good source of iron, zinc and B vitamins. Good white meat ! It is also a good source of tryptophan, the amino acid that helps calm the body into blissful slumber.This is one of the reasons I have it on my list of foods that help with Insomnia ! Red potatoes are a good source of complex carbohydrate, fiber and B vitamins. Ginger, garlic and onion have anti-inflammatory properties. Herbs just add so much zest and flavor to the dish !
