Cajun Praline Turkey Cutlets

Culinary Setting
Boneless Breast, Turkey Ham


1/3 c maple syrup

1 tbsp margarine


2 (1/8-inch thick) Slices TURKEY HAM, each cut in half

1 oz Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 1/4-inchX2-inch strips

2 tsp Creole seasoning

1/4 c pecans, finely chopped

4 tbsp plain yogurt or light sour cream


In an 8-inch micro-safe dish, combine syrup and margarine. Cover and microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 20-30 seconds or until margarine is melted. Set aside.

On each cutlet, place a slice of ham. Arrange a cheese stick at one end of ham-topped cutlet. Roll cutlets up, jelly-roll style, to encase cheese. Place rolls, seam-side down, in a baking dish with syrup mixture. Sprinkle each roll with 1/2-teaspoon Creole seasoning.

Cover dish with wax paper and microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 2-1/2 minutes. Rotate dish 1/2 turn and baste rolls with sauce. Sprinkle pecans over top and recover. Microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 2-1/2 minutes.

Allow rolls to stand, covered, 1 to 2 minutes before serving. Top each roll with 1 tablespoon yogurt or light sour cream.
