  • 2 tsp finely diced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley

  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • oil for cooking burgers
  • 2 Kaiser or hamburger rolls
  • toppings and dressing (not pictured)*

Breaded turkey cutlets

I’ve been trying to eat more turkey. Well, I’ve been trying to eat less red meat and I already eat chicken constantly, so amping up the turkey intake seemed like the next step.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

Tangy turkey and Swiss sandwiches

A nod to AllRecipes.com for this recipe, which I have altered slightly.

I tried this for the first time about five years ago, and have made it every once in awhile since then. The important thing with this recipe is to use a hardy bread, otherwise the bread falls apart. I did not have the right kind of bread today, and worked around it, so it can be done, but. . .use a hardy bread.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 slices hardy bread
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/4 pound deli sliced oven roasted turkey
  • tomato slices (2 to 4 per sandwich, depending on size and preference)
  • Swiss cheese slices (1 or 2 per sandwich, depending on preference)
