Paleo Almond Crusted Turkey Cutlets make a fast & furious 20 minute dinner! Oven baked on a sheet pan with rosemary, this recipe makes juicy, tender cutlets with the perfect crunch! Paleo + Gluten Free + Low Calorie
I really hope you’ve been loving these easy, 20 minute sheet pan meals! They’ve been my go to meals this summer. Now that I’m cooking for two, I’m always trying to make weeknight dinners as easy as possible. Before I started dating the guy, I could pretty much make one or two meals over the weekend and eat leftovers all week. Not so much anymore.
While he does cook, he doesn’t plan. I’ve learned if I leave meals up to him, we’re either eating tuna and salad or salmon. If I’m not there, he’s eating pizza and God know whatever else. He truly flies by the seat of his pants. That’s probably why he needs to lose a few pounds. Oops! Don’t tell him I said that. Exactly why you have to plan to lose weight!
These turkey cutlets are generously coated in almond flour. I love using almond flour to make fried recipe knock-offs like these Almond Crusted Turkey Cutlets. Almond flour has a similar texture as fried foods, and when baked it get a nice crispy, crunch!
To flavor the almond turkey cutlets, I added rosemary. It adds a burst of unexpected fragrance. I’m pretty sure rosemary isn’t used enough in recipes except in winter. Why is that? It’s sooooo good!!!
Speaking of good, these cutlets are tasty good for you. Going to whip up another batch tonight for dinner. They go perfect with almond crusted asparagus fries! Now, if only I could get the guy to eat that too.
P.S. This weekend there won’t be a meal prep recipe on Saturday or Monday due to Labor Day!
