Reviews for Italian Turkey Cutlets
"I really, REALLY enjoyed this recipe! So simple but an amazing flavor! I actually used two leeks that I had on hand in place of the onion - basically bulked up the veggie end of this. I also pan seared the cutlets in a cast iron skillet. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks Janet! :)"
