Turkey is the typical hospital/diet sad meal, I think. However, it can be really tasty, just using some creativity and a couple of tasty ingredients. Indeed, this is the way my husband always wants is turkey now.
You know, I don’t eat meat, but I do satisfy my husband’s meat cravings now and then. I have to say it’s pretty easy, as he eats almost everything, even when some of my experiments don’t come out that well. These breasts paired with my Beetroot Rosti are just the perfect combo.
This wasn’t the case of this turkey breasts – I used chicken as well and it works deliciously – which he just loves. They’re so easy to prepare and the outcome is really tasty, completely different from the usual grilled breasts. They’re moist on the inside and crispy on top. Plus, they’re really tasty when warmed up the day after, they don’t dry out at all. What are you waiting for? Turn on the oven and bake some dinner!
“I don’t know — maybe the world has two different kinds of people, and for one kind the world is this completely logical, rice pudding place, and for the other it’s all hit-or-miss gratin.”Haruki Murakami

- 50 gr Breadcrumbs
- 30 gr Grated Parmesan

- Preheat oven at 180C. Align the turkey breasts on a oven tray layered with baking paper and season slightly with a pinch of salt.
- In a bowl, mix together all the other ingredients, except for the milk and oil. You should get a moist but dense mixture. Add a couple of tbsp of milk in case the mixture seems to dry.
- Cover each turkey breast with the mixture, spray some olive oil on top to get a nice crust. Bake for 15 min at 180C and other 10 min at 200C, use the grill function for 2 extra minutes for a crispier crust.
I do have a scientific mind, probably it’s the reason why I love to hide in the kitchen and start creating.
My cooking is healthy, fun and colorful… and really tasty!
