Cheesy Turkey Fingers

This is my final turkey dish, I promise, and another that I'm entering into the competition in conjunction with Lean on Turkey that BritMums are currently running. It's reasonably healthy as I baked the fingers instead of frying them and they only have a small amount of cheese in. I would've liked to have added some chilli powder to the crispy coating but my three children probably wouldn't have eaten them if they were too spicy. It does make quite a large number of fingers considering there was only 4 turkey steaks used. At under £4 for the turkey it's also a very economical family meal.

Cheesy Turkey Fingers
573g Turkey Breast Steaks
4 Eggs, beaten
100g Plain Flour
135g Cream Crackers, finely crushed 
4 tsp dried Oregano
25g Parmesan Cheese, finely grated

  • Cut the turkey into fingers, I find it's easiest to do this with scissors rather than a knife
  • Mix together the cream crackers, oregano and parmesan and put into a shallow bowl or plate
  • Add the beaten eggs to another bowl and the flour in another
  • Dip the turkey into the egg, then the flour, back into the egg & then into the cream cracker crumbs, coating fully in each
  • Lay the fingers onto a greased baking dish
  • Bake in a preheated 200 degree (C) oven for 20-25 minutes, until cooked all the way through and crispy on the outside
I served in pitta bread with salad and coleslaw and a herb and garlic mayonnaise
