I decided to make these for dinner the other night.
I went on to my blog to grab the recipe and realized it didn’t have a print option.
To make life easier for me the next time I want to make them I decided to fix that.
For all of you who have not seen the recipe or thought about … Continue reading.....
When we lived in the US I could buy turkey tenderloins, ground turkey, turkey sausage, and whole turkeys.
Here I can buy turkey legs (including the thigh), turkey cutlets and whole turkeys – but I can only get the whole turkeys at Christmas. The other two are always available.

In summer we do them on the barbecue; in winter I roast them in the oven.… Continue reading.....
