Turkey Cutlets in Tarragon White Wine

Total time: 25 minutes
      You can use turkey tenderloin - sliced horizontally to make cutlets, or kept whole and simmered another 10 minutes, then sliced before serving.  This is served with a light tarragon sauce.

Turkey Cutlets in Tarragon White Wine Ingredients:


Fried Sweet Potatoes

Total time: 35 minutes
   Incredibly easy, faster than the more traditional sweet potato methods of baking or drenching in something sweet; simple frying lets the wonderful flavor shine.  A bit of oil added to the butter helps prevent burning.
