This was easy and very good. My grocery store didn't have turkey cutlets - so I made it with pork chops. I also just chopped plain white onions instead of shallots. It was terrific. My kids aren't fond of spinach -- so I just covered their pork chop with the cheese and gave the extra spinach to me and my husband. I would definitely make this again and may even try it with chicken.
Turkey & Fontina Melts
From EatingWell: EatingWell Serves Two
An elegant presentation of turkey layered with spinach and cheese, yet surprisingly quick to make. Round out the meal with a side of whole-wheat pasta, a salad and a glass of Pinot Noir.
3 Reviews for Turkey & Fontina Melts
This was delicious and so easy. We seasoned the cutlets with salt and pepper, before dusting with flour (as usual, I find this step missing from Eating Well recipes and it greatly enhances flavor). The combination of shallots and sherry gave a wonderful flavor that matches well to the nutty-sweet taste of the Fontina. This is a dish worthy of company at the table. We served it with a bit of tomato salad to add some acidity to the mix.
This was easy and incredibly delicious. We paired it with a tomato salad to add some acid to the mix. The shallots and sherry just made the spinach so tasty! The fontina was a great choice of cheeses. I think this is a dish that can be served to company.
By the way, we seasoned the turkey with salt and pepper before the flour; and we also seasoned the spinach with a bit of salt and pepper. I find the EW recipes generally are not seasoned well enough.
