  • 1 pound red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 pounds small white button mushrooms, stems trimmed
  • 2 strips bacon (2 ounces), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 8 turkey cutlets (3 to 4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Grainy mustard, for serving


  1. Heat broiler. If using a broiler-proof rimmed baking sheet, set rack 4 inches from heat; if using a broiler pan, set rack so that top of pan is 4 inches from heat. On sheet (or pan), arrange potatoes and mushrooms in a single layer. Sprinkle with bacon, sage, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  2. Broil, tossing every 5 to 6 minutes, until potatoes are tender and browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl (reserve sheet).

  3. Place turkey cutlets on sheet; season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with Parmesan, dividing evenly. Broil until cheese is golden and turkey is opaque throughout, 6 to 8 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, toss potatoes and mushrooms with parsley; season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

  5. Serve turkey cutlets with potato-mushroom mixture, accompanied by grainy mustard.

Cook's Notes

Turkey cutlets can be used instead of chicken cutlets in many recipes; they are particularly good broiled, sauteed, or cut into strips and stir-fried.
