With or without the dipping sauce, this crunchy crowd-pleaser is tasty. The cranberry-Dijon sauce gives the fun snack plenty of tang.—Donna-Marie Ryan, Topsfield, MA

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 4 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons jellied cranberry sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground walnuts, divided
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • DIPPING SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard

Nutritional Facts

1 appetizer with 2 teaspoons sauce equals 76 calories, 5 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 14 mg cholesterol, 232 mg sodium, 7 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 2 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 fat, 1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a small skillet, cook turkey over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cheese, parsley, cranberry sauce, 1 teaspoon walnuts, honey, mustard, salt and pepper.
  2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface with a long side facing you; brush with butter. Repeat with three more sheets of phyllo, brushing each layer. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
  3. Cut the stack widthwise into four strips. Place 2 tablespoons turkey mixture along one long side of each strip; roll up tightly. Pinch edges to seal. Cut roll in half; place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat. Brush tops with butter; sprinkle with remaining walnuts.
  4. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. For dipping sauce, in a microwave, heat cranberry sauce until softened. Stir in mustard. Serve with appetizers. Yield: 2 dozen (1 cup sauce).

I have made this recipe 3 times, just as it is written. I made it for a party the last time and people were asking to take home the leftovers.
