Happy Thursday. Nearly December!!
Around this time of year like me, you might be looking for some new and tasty recipes to cook up something fun with Turkey!?
Today I am sharing a tasty recipe from We Love Maple…
Maple Pulled Turkey Sandwiches:
Servings: 20 portions
- 30ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
- 1.5kg (3.5lb) turkey (legs or breasts, with bones and skin)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 head of garlic, cut in half
- 250ml pure maple syrup from Canada
- 125 ml tomato paste
- 125ml cider vinegar
- One 341ml bottle of dark ale
- 15ml (1 tbsp) ground cinnamon
- 15ml (1 tbsp) ground ginger
- 5ml (1 tsp) ground cloves
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 20 bread rolls
- Preheat the oven to 160°C (325°F).
- In a large oven-proof casserole dish, heat the olive oil over medium heat and brown the turkey pieces for about 3 minutes per side. Add the onion and garlic, and fry for 1 minute.
- In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (except the bread), then add to the casserole dish. Cover and bring to the boil, then bake for 3 hours.
- Leave to cool before removing the turkey pieces from the dish. Remove the skin, de-bone then shred the meat with a fork. Set the shredded turkey aside.
- Remove the fat from the meat juices using a spoon, then return the pulled turkey to the casserole dish. Mix together well and reheat for about 5 minutes.
- When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Fill the bread rolls with meat and place on a baking sheet, then cover with aluminium foil and bake for 15 minutes.
These look great for a warm Christmas tea or Boxing day lunch.
Sweet party food ideas, methinks!!
