Turkey Cutlet Recipes: A tasty coating seasoned with cheese and Italian herbs


Turkey cutlet recipes are pounded or thinly sliced cuts of turkey breast. The fact that these thin pieces of meat cook very quickly is one of the biggest advantages. Plus, turkey breast is a great source of lean protein, and an excellent alternative to veal, pork, or chicken cutlets. 

These baked turkey cutlets are packed with lean and tastes quite scrumptious with a simple Parmesan cheese and breadcrumb coating. A small amount of spicy mustard in the egg coating adds extra flavour to the turkey cutlets, quite a spicy trick. Won’t you agree? 

This simple breaded cutlet makes a great match with baked potatoes and a side vegetable. You can also slice them and serve on a Caesar salad. Or maybe arrange the cooked Turkey cutlets in a baking dish with marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese. And bake them just until the cheese melts. A lemon sauce also tastes excellent on these cutlets.

Why don’t you try them out and see for yourself!
