Posted for RecipeZaar World Tour 2006. Make in advance for your next BBQ... Use any cheese that has good melting qualities... Cheddar, Double Gloucester etc. Preparation time includes 2 hour chilling time. Escalopes= A French term meaning a “very thin”, boneless slice of meat such as: veal, pork, turkey, or salmon. Escalopes are thinner from using a meat mallet or rolling pin to thin out. The cooking time is very short because they are so thin. REGION: France.
- 700 g turkey escalopes (1.5 lb)
- 8 slices cooked ham (thin slices)
- 100 g cheese (4 oz)
- 30 ml creamed horseradish (2 teaspoons)
- 29 ml plain flour (4 Tablespoons)
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 90 ml dried breadcrumbs (6 Tablespoons)
- vegetable oil
- lime slice (to garnish)
- But your turkey into 16-18 pieces.
- Lay it onto a sheet of cling-film or greaseproof paper, cover with another sheet of same and use your rolling pin or a meat tenderizer to roll or bash them really thin.
- Cut each of the slices of ham in half and cut the cheese into 16-18 little rectangular blocks.
- Wrap the cheese blocks with the ham, making sure that you have a small amount of horseradish and seasonings inside with the cheese.
- Wrap up your little ham bundle in a piece of the turkey, using a cocktail stick to secure firmly.

- Coat the turkey bundle in the egg mixture and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
- Brush with plenty of oil and BBQ or grill them for approximately 8 minutes each side.

We loved these little babies. They were very flavorful and we loved the touch of horseradish, although I used more than stated. I had a lot of trouble with the coating as written. It was just to dry to stay on each bundle. I added an additional egg, but that only made it a thick paste and I could not get it to stay on. So, I dipped each bundle in a beaten egg mixed with a little water, then coated each in the flour and bread crumb mixture (I used panko since that was what I had). I did not see a way I could grill these, so popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Never could get them to brown very well. Then I applied the BBQ sauce to some and cocktail sauce to others and put them back in the oven for about 5 minutes. Yummy. I'll be making these again.
