(Serves 4) 4 x Gourmet Direct Turkey Breasts
1 x Gourmet Direct Butter Pastry (approx. 200-250gm required for this recipe)
1 x Packet Gourmet Direct Prosciutto
4 turkey breasts
220gm blue cheese
1 packet sliced prosciutto
Butterfly turkey breast lengthwise.
Slice cheese into 1cm thick slices, and wrap each in a slice of prosciutto (this helps to keep the cheese in the middle while cooking).
Roast turkey at 180°C for 20 minutes until slightly pink inside.
Rest & cut each turkey breast into 4 slices.
Pineapple & Cherry Upside Down Tart
Puff/flaky pastry rounds – large round cutter 5-6 inch; ¾ cm thick. Place paper under each.
½ tsp fresh cracked pepper
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup balsamic vinegar
Simmer sugar mix until dissolved.
Pineapple – use fresh golden pineapple, trim & wedge pineapple.
6 dried razz cherries per tart – very sour (available from any good wholefood shop/deli).
In small shallow frypan place 2-3 pieces of pineapple, 6 cherries and a heaped tablespoon of sugar mix. Place pastry on top. Chill until required.
Set oven at 200°C and bake 4 tarts for 10-12 minutes until pastry is golden and cooked (tarts can be cooked and kept somewhere warm until turkey is cooked).
Place tart in centre of plate – arrange turkey on top of tart and spoon any tart juice around plate.
Garnish with crisp prosciutto.
All of the preparation for the tart can be done the day before. The tart can be made up the morning before.
Pear or nashi can be used instead of pineapple (any dried fruit can replace cherries. Eg. dates, cranberries).
