ACTIVE: 30 minutes TOTAL: 40 minutes
This quick and healthy turkey cutlet recipe delivers a taste of Thanksgiving in just 40
minutes start to finish. Serve with wild rice pilaf and steamed green beans.
6 ounces sliced white mushrooms
1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/8 teaspoon salt plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
4 turkey cutlets (about 1 pound)
3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter
1. Finely chop mushrooms and onion in a food processor. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large
skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and onion, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4
teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring, until the liquid is mostly evaporated, about 4 minutes.
Scrape into a bowl and stir in breadcrumbs and cranberries. Wash and dry the skillet.
2. Cover cutlets with plastic wrap and pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to about
1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle one side with poultry seasoning and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon
each salt and pepper. Turn the cutlets over and spread about 1/2 cup of the mushroom
mixture over each. Roll up, starting from a short side. Tie the rolls closed with kitchen string.
3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add rolls,
seam-side down, and cook for 2 minutes. Carefully turn. Whisk broth and flour together
and add to the pan. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until an instant-read
thermometer inserted into a roll registers 165°F, 10 to 12 minutes.
4. Remove the rolls from the pan and strain the gravy through a fine-mesh sieve, if desired.
Stir in butter until melted. Slice the rolls, if desired, and serve with the gravy.
