Turkey Cutlets with Mustard Crust

Mock Spinach Soufflé

      My love affair with sweet potatoes continues - here, cooked very simply.  An easy dinner to finish the week.

Turkey Cutlets with Mustard Crust

Total time: 30 minutes
  The mustard - crumb crust keeps these nice and moist and gets deliciously crispy fried in just a bit of olive oil.  You can use chicken breasts in place of turkey, but they will need an extra 10 minutes of cooking time.... unless you pound them thin first.

Sweet Potato Chips

   Paprika works well with sweet potatoes, adding a little zing.  Use hot paprika if you like.

Mock Spinach Soufflé

Total time: 40 minutes
    Another recipe whose origins are lost in the mists of time.  It's delicious, easy and helps me get my weekly ration of spinach.  Even non-spinach lovers are happy with this.  With a bit of bread and a salad it can also make a light lunch.
