Gone are the days when turkey was just to be served up at Thanksgiving or Christmas! Now we can enjoy all cuts of turkey at any time of year. Turkey is a versatile, lean delicious and nutritious protein that lends itself to many different flavour combinations and recipe ideas, which is why I like to cook with it all year round. While we do love a whole roasted turkey, we also enjoy turkey in burgers, soup, pot pie, lettuce wraps and casseroles. Yum.
Now with Easter and Mother’s Day just around the corner, I created this delicious dinner recipe for Asparagus and Swiss Cheese Stuffed Turkey Cutlets. Fresh spring asparagus paired with lean and delicious turkey, make these a perfect main course for any springtime special occasion!
Don’t be afraid to make these! I know the idea of stuffed turkey cutlets may seem daunting, but I promise it’s not hard. Preparation takes less than 15 minutes, and can be made even easier if you buy pre cut turkey cutlets. Once you have the cutlet, then it’s really just a matter of rolling them up with delicious ingredients inside. Let me show you.
I like to buy pre cut turkey cutlets from the grocery store that come tenderized and ready to use. Once you have your cutlets ready to go, lay them out on a cutting board and get them prepared for the next step. For these Asparagus and Swiss Cheese Stuffed Turkey Cutlets, I first seasoned them with salt and pepper, then placed Swiss cheese slices, and 3 asparagus spears on to each cutlet.
Then you just gently roll them up and secure them with wooden toothpicks.
Now they’re ready for the next step! See, wasn’t that easy?
I then rolled these cutlets in a crushed cornflake mixture, seasoned them with seasoning salt, and drizzled them generously with butter. Put into the oven for about 40 minutes and smell the deliciousness as they bake.
These cutlets then come out of the oven with a crispy, crunchy, flavourful crust, a tender turkey outer layer and a cheesy delicious centre! So good. You might have noticed that some of the cheese has melted out of the roll up, but don’t worry, it’s not as much as you might think, but make sure to scrape all these buttery cheesy bits off the bottom of the pan and eat them…it’s one of the best parts 😉 Yummmmmm
Asparagus and Swiss Cheese Stuffed Turkey Cutlets
- 4 turkey cutlets (you can buy them as cutlets)
- fresh ground pepper
- 4 slices Swiss cheese (I used large slices. Just make sure you have enough to cover the cutlet)
- 12 asparagus stalks
- 1/4 cup crushed cornflakes
- seasoning salt
- 1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Lay out the turkey cutlets, then salt & pepper each cutlet.
Place one slice of Swiss cheese on each cutlet, then 3 asparagus spears.
Roll each turkey cutlet, and secure with wooden toothpicks (as shown in the picture).
Roll each turkey cutlet package in the crushed cornflakes, then place on a baking sheet.
Season each roll with the seasoning salt, then generously drizzle with the melted butter.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until the turkey has cooked fully and the juices are clear.
Remove the wooden toothpicks before serving.
Serve with a side salad and potatoes if you like!
You can make as many cutlets as you like...if you have 6 people to feed, use 6 cutlets and increase the ingredients as required.
- You can purchase pre cut turkey cutlets in your grocery store. Or if you wish, you can make your own from a whole turkey breast.
- If you don’t love asparagus (or are allergic to it like my daughter), you can substitute it with broccolini.
- Don’t have cornflakes? You can use bread crumbs instead.
