I often struggle to think of things to cook when my boyfriend comes over for dinner, as he is extremely fussy and has fairly simple tastes - he doesn't like sauces, or strong flavours, and generally prefers to eat things like pizza or burger and chips - but he's not doing that in my house! (Well, not all the time, anyway). So one thing I like to do is my own homemade version of something that he already eats out of a packet, so I know he will like it, but that my version will be healthier - and also that it is made with love :-)
So one night recently I hit upon the idea of turkey escalopes filled with bacon and cheese. I started off by cooking some bacon: in retrospect, I should have made this healthier by using my George Foreman grill.
Then I set out three bowls, containing flour, an egg (beaten after this photo) and Paxo breadcrumbs
Lay a turkey escalope out flat and place a piece of bacon then a thick slice of mozzarella cheese on top
Carefully holding the cheese and bacon onto the turkey, dip each side in the flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Place on a baking tray: they don't look half bad!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo after they had been cooked but the escalopes basically look the same as above, only darker and crispier. When you cut into them you get a great combination of turkey, cheese and bacon. My boyfriend really liked these and asked me to make them again so I think I can put them down as a success!
