Last night I made Turkey Cigars. It’s another great recipe from 30 minute meals. Her original recipe calls for ground chicken, but thats not super easy to come by so I substituted ground turkey breast. It made for an excellent meal. Below is my modified recipe if you want to try it out. Here is the original.
1 pound ground turkey breast
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons grill seasoning (recommended: Montreal Seasoning by McCormick), half a palm full
2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves, a handful
4 sheets phyllo dough
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place turkey in a bowl and mix with spices and parsley. Place a piece of phyllo on a nonstick cookie sheet, butter it and top with a second sheet. Divide the turkey in half. Form a 1-inch thick log the length of the long side of the phyllo dough. Roll the log in phyllo tightly. Cut the turkey filled phyllo into 4 “cigars” and brush with a dab more butter. Repeat to make a total of 8 turkey and phyllo roll-ups.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes until golden.
