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 still an extremely ideal lean and healthy choice!

Why Baked Parmesan Turkey Escalopes Make A Great Quick Healthy Meal

Easy low cost quick healthy meals designed for families have always been a feature in the majority of my blog recipes.

And now this is 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!

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.

I’m so looking forward to that celebration and the photography lessons I had on Tuesday have given me a whole new way of looking at my photography, so stand by for York photographs in the future!!

      Oh, fantastic! Now you’re talking Carla.:D

      Ground turkey, I can think of healthy turkey burgers, healthy turkey meatballs…..mmmmm 😉

  2. Happy Birthday to Lynne!!!
    Neil – I confess, I am one of those who overlook Turkey and just get chicken – but I am gonna look in my grocers meet dept and see if turkey is cheaper than chicken over here in Atlanta too. As a single parent, am always looking for budget friendly meals – this sounds like a delicious addition to my rotation! Thanks so much! And good luck with the job hunt – looking forward to those photos…

      Lynne says “thank you” 😀 Shashi

      She feels she knows you closely because I rave about your recipes every time a new one is up! Only today I took a slice of your Chocolate Chip & Kabocha Breakfast Bar from my freezer to have with my morning coffee. Yum!! Only one left now though. Do I make more or do I make the Chocolate and Beet Cookies? Decisions, decisions ❓

      Glad you liked the recipe here! Hope you can get turkey cheaper than chicken like we can.

      Onwards with the job hunt (thanks 🙂 ) looking forward to York and picture snapping.

  3. Looks delicious & healthy, Neil! Happy Birthday, Lynne! Tomorrow is my birthday (63rd). Looking forward to seeing your photos from York! 🙂

  4. Well…actually…where you live, TODAY is my birthday – Dec. 5th….gets confusing….
