Greetings turkey lovers! I omitted the “Christmas” from my greetings to you there because although it is that time of year that I’m writing this, you may actually be reading this baked parmesan turkey escalopes recipe and planning it in the middle of June!
No matters! Whatever time of year you put this baked parmesan turkey escalopes dish on the table it’s delicious! 😉
I often choose to cook with turkey because it’s half the price of chicken and I think it’s overlooked.
I mean essentially turkey provides more or less the same nutritional benefits as chicken. The main differences being turkey has a slightly lower protein content compared to chicken but it does have a lower fat content per gram too. So it’s an extremely ideal lean and healthy choice!
Low cost, easy quick healthy family meals have always been a feature in the majority of my blog recipes. Even more so now that I am between jobs and watching the pennies until I find new employment. Whether or not you are in that situation too this baked parmesan turkey escalopes recipe is an ideal, easy family recipe.
Sure you could buy something equivalent pre-made in the supermarket but nothing beats healthy home cooking does it?
I recommend serving the baked parmesan turkey escalopes with a squeeze of lemon and the simple tomato and rocket side salad which compliments this well!
These baked parmesan turkey escalopes are delicious and such a great quick healthy meal to make.
- For the escalopes:-
- 2 turkey steaks
- 8 tbsp wholemeal breadcrumbs
- 6 tbsp parmesan
- ½ tsp mixed herbs
- Salt and Pepper
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp corn flour
- For the tomato and rocket salad:-
- 2 chopped medium sized tomatoes
- leaves Rocket
- 12 black olives
- 1 small red onion chopped
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Pre-heat oven to 220C Fan.
- Place the turkey steaks under some cling film and use a rolling pin to flatten them out.
- Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan and herbs together in a bowl and season with a little salt and pepper.
- Beat the egg in a separate bowl to make up the egg wash mix and sprinkle the flour evenly over a separate flat plate.
- Coat each turkey steak in some flour, dip into the egg wash mix, and then coat thoroughly in the breadcrumb mix. Put the turkey steaks into the fridge for 15 – 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make salad by combining all of the tomato and rocket salad ingredients together in a salad bowl, ensuring that all of the oil and vinegar coats all of the leaves.
- Place turkey steaks on a lightly greased baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
- Serve with a squeeze of lemon over the escalopes.
If you don’t have wholemeal breadcrumbs, white ones can be used.
Anyway, it’s time to put the Christmas tunes back onto the iPod for my gym sessions. With my changing circumstances, I’ve now started going to Glasgow Club’s Gorbals gym. It’s huge, but with all the cardio and weight machines I need to keep up my exercise routine. Sometimes you need to change with the times. 🙂
