This is a lighter version of one of my favorite recipes. I got this from the Jennie-O turkey web site. Wonderful with side salad for light summer dinner or lunch.

- 2 large egg whites
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

- 2In a shallow dish beat together egg whites and milk with a fork. Add 2 tablespoons flour, cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg, and mix well. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and add 1 teaspoon butter. Place over medium heat until butter sizzles.
- 3Put remaining 3 tablespoons flour in plastic bag. Add 2 turkey slices at a time to bag and shake to coat. Dip into milk mixture, turning to coat and letting excess mixture drip off. Add coated turkey to skillet and cook about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and no longer pink in center.
