I found this recipe card in the November issue of Saveur. As usual, I did not follow the recipe exactly. I don't usually...unless it is Paula Deen :) So, here is my version based on the one I found.
Turkey Schnitzel with Cherry Relish
6 oz package of dried cherries
1 cup of water
5 tbsp butter
1 sweet onion, diced
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
4 pieces turkey breast (I bought a package of 2 pieces turkey breast + tenderloin to give me 4. They were huge!)
1 cup flour
2 cups Italian breadcrumbs (you can use any kind, this is just the seasoned one I typically get)
4 tbsp olive oil
S&P to taste
1. Heat oven to 400. Heat 1 tbsp butter in small saucepan. Add onion and cook for about 5 mins. Add cherries, 1 cup water, sherry vinegar, and brown sugar. Bring to boil and cook for 2 minutes. Set to low heat until ready to serve.
2. Grab 3 bowls: 1 for flour, 1 for eggs, and 1 for breadcrumbs. Dredge each piece of turkey into the flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Place in baking dish with the 4 tbsp of olive oil and 4 tbsp butter. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
3. Serve with salad or fresh veggies and biscuits. Enjoy!
Now the recipe asked for, in my opinion, WAY too much butter and olive oil. I cut those 2 ingredients in half. Also, the directions were to cook in skillet. I baked it in the stove.
Do you follow directions word for word or do you change up recipes?
