Turkey Scallopini with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Carrots.

Monday, December 05, 2011

This dinner is one of my favourites! It is healthy, cheap and full of delicious flavours! I know most recipes that involve coating meat in breadcrumbs require egg for dipping and coating, but I am not a fan of very thick coating.  I just use some oil so the breadcrumbs stick lightly. Its great for those who are counting calories!



Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Ingredients:
2 large sweet potatoes
2 cups of baby carrots
3 garlic cloves, minces
1 tsp dried rosemary
salt, pepper, cayenne pepper
3 tbsp olive oil

Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and place rack at the top of oven.
2. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into small chunks.
3. Place potatoes and carrots in a large bowl.
4. Add oil, garlic, rosemary to the bowl and coat vegetables evenly.
5. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cayenne.
6. Transfer vegetables into a 13x9 baking dish.
7. Roast for 40 minutes until tender and lightly browned.

Turkey Scallopini with Mushrooms

Ingredients:
4 thin turkey breast slices (if using a thick breast, be sure to pound to 1/4 in thickness)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
salt, pepper, garlic powder
1.5 tbsp olive oil
1 package of sliced brown mushrooms
1 tbsp butter
1 clove garlic (minced)

Directions:
1. Heat butter and garlic in a pan over medium heat.  Saute garlic until golden brown.  Add mushrooms and turn up the heat to medium-high.  Saute mushrooms for about 10-13 minutes until liquid is evaporated and mushrooms are tender and brown. Set aside until turkey is finished.
2. Mix breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and generous amount of garlic powder on a plate.
3. Rub a little bit of olive oil over the turkey and then place in the breadcrumbs mixture until fully coated.
4. Heat olive oil in non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.  Lay 2 turkey breasts on pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side.  Remove breasts and place on a plate with tin foil tent until the other pieces are cooked.
5. Place a scoop of mushrooms on top of turkey and serve with potatoes and carrots.
