Turkey Cutlets with Bacon and Cheese

Most people cannot resist bacon and cheese.

I cannot resist a white wine / yogurt sauce.

As the weather cools and the cooking returns to the kitchen, my thoughts turn to our favorites.

We have all winter to think about healthy….

The turkey cutlets we get here are so versatile.

They are big, so I normally buy 2 cutlets and cut them into thirds; and they are thin so are great to use in stir-fries, quiches, or as a base for something fun.

Just add bacon.

  1. I get turkey breasts, bone in, or I get them boneless. I have to cut them up and they’ve gotten really expensive. Pork has become the least expensive meat I can buy in my area now. But this looks delicious so I’ll have to give it a try. Still hoping you’re having a good time. 🙂
