Italian Turkey Cutlets



I love Turkey Cutlets.  They are super easy, fast, and affordable.  And best of all, they don't taste like Turkey.  Those of you that don't like Turkey will get what I am saying.  The Turkey you get at Thanksgiving is Turkey to me.  I am good with having that once a year, but after that, I am good.  Turkey Cutlets though, don't taste like that.  The texture is way different, and I just like them. 

In going through my freezer I found that I had 2 packs of Turkey Cutlets. Score!  I have 2 stand bys that I make with turkey cutlets.  One is you coat in seasoned flour, lightly brown in a tiny bit of oil, top with salsa and cheese.  The other is this Lemon Turkey.  Both good, but I wanted to do something different.  I had one lonely tomato from my garden to use, so I got to thinking.  Then I remembered I also had pesto in the freezer.  I like to freeze it in ice cube trays.  Once frozen pop them out of the tray, store in a bag, and you are good to go.  So this is what I came up with.  The name isn't all that great, but I couldn't come up with a better one!

Italian Turkey Cutlets
Printable Recipe

2 Turkey Cutlets
1 cube pesto (approx 1 Tbls)
1/4 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup Mozarella Cheese
Drizzle Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Heat skillet over medium heat.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Season both sides of turkey with salt and pepper.  Once the pan is hot, brown one side of the turkey.  Turn over and top with pesto, tomatoes and cheese.  Cover the pan, leaving a slight opening.  Cook until cheese is melted, and turkey is cooked through.  Approx 5 minutes per side. 

Enjoy with roasted potatoes and a salad for a yummy dinner!

Turkey is a great healthy alternative to chicken - less fat! And this sauce will certainly help keep it moist. Very tasty.

I love turkey (in any form) but I love the ease of cutlets. I also need to get going on freezing some pesto since my 3 basil plants are getting huge and I'll need to make sure I have enough pesto for the winter. :). Your recipe looks wonderful!!

hmm, this is intriguing to me, since i typically do not like turkey. i may eat a bite or two on thanksgiving, but that's about it. but if you say these don't taste like turkey, maybe they'll be a nice change for me instead of chicken cutlets. food for thought!

PS. I'm glad we can be friends!

Hmmm. Apparently I have been living under a culinary rock because i have never once considered picking up a pack of turkey cutlets in lieu of my old standby chicken. You've given me pause for concern. I will remedy immediately. This looks too good to pass up.

That is a genius idea with the pesto in the ice cube tray! I'm totally gonna steal that. Great recipe as well, I'll proly steal that too :)

You just reminded me of a turkey cutlet recipe I used to make for the kids. I haven't made that in a while. I'm putting that back on our menu and adding this one too!

I totally get what you are saying about turkey. I'm typically not a fan, but cutlets are a different deal. This recipe sounds like the perfect complement to the cutlets and I am looking forward to trying it very soon!
