DIRECTIONS

  • Break the bread into pieces. In a large bowl, soak the bread in the half-and-half until the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Mix in the turkey, egg, salt, pepper, dill, and the 3 tablespoons room-temperature butter. Put in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm up.
  • Remove the turkey mixture from the freezer; it will still be very soft. Form the mixture into four oval cutlets and coat them with the bread crumbs.
  • In a large, nonstick frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the oil over moderate heat. Cook the cutlets until golden brown and just done, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Menu Suggestions.
  • Sautéed mushrooms are the traditional Russian accompaniment to turkey cutlets. Beets, glazed carrots, and mashed potatoes are other excellent possibilities.
