I would be the first person to say that this year has flown by, as much as we don’t want to admit it we are becoming so much busier!
On December Sunday the 16th we had the Van de Elzen Xmas. The problem was that Bee has spent most of Saturday (the day before) in the kitchen preparing food for the lunch. Yes, we may take food a little more seriously than the average! However most of us just want to do something simple fast and above all tasty.
So, I present my Turkey escalopes.
Simple, different, tasty and above all very Christmassy!
Parmesan Crusted Turkey Escalopes
- 600g turkey breast
- 2 Tbsp plain flour
- 4 whole eggs, lightly beaten
- 100ml cream
- 50g finely grated fresh parmesan cheese
- pinch salt
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 50g butter
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Rocket, pear and parmesan salad
- 1 pkt baby rocket leaves
- 100g fresh parmesan, shaved
- 1 pear, quartered and finely sliced
- 1-2 Tbsp aged Balsamic vinegar
Slice the turkey breasts into escalopes, or rounds. Lay the slices between two pieces of plastic wrap and beat with a rolling pin or similar until flattened.
Now prepare the seasoned flour and egg-wash. Put the salt, pepper and flour in a large bowl and mix. Put the beaten egg, grated parmesan and cream in another bowl and mix.
Pass the turkey escalopes through the flour, then through the egg-wash. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan until bubbling. Shallow fry the turkey for 1-2 minutes each side until the coating is crispy. Serve with rocket salad, prepared by combining the ingredients in a bowl, drizzled with the aged balsamic.
