Turkey with Horseradish Sauce
Sautéed Paprika Potato Rounds
Glazed Tarragon Carrots

Cooking time: 30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

    Horseradish is a most under-used condiment.  I like to add a bit for a different type of heat than typical hot sauce.  The turkey cutlets cook quickly making this an easy dinner.

Turkey with Horseradish Sauce  

Total time: 30 minutes
      You can use turkey tenderloin - sliced horizontally to make cutlets, or kept whole and simmered another 10 minutes, then sliced before serving.  The combination of mustard and horseradish gives this dish an interesting 'warmth', but not heat like pepper sauce would.

    Rather than baking these chips, I sautéed them.  They get a bit more crisp, and it's easier to add seasonings as they cook.

     Roll-cutting gives interesting looking pieces with lots of surface to be coated with this lovely sweet-sour, tarragon glaze.  I came up with this recipe in the spring with my fresh tarragon, but it's just as good now, with the dried.
