To be honest I have no idea how to call this recipe (in case you spotted my made up name above) – it is something like a drop scone, but its Polish name RACUCHY doesn’t have an English equivalent.
Normally racuchy are a sweet cuisine, but someone somewhere sometime ago decided that it doesn’t have to be this way. It was changed and adapted to function as a savoury dish. It is my recipe, for a change, and I have been cooking it for as long as I can remember. The recipe is quick, easy, really tasty and what’s most important is you can add to it just about any ingredients you desire depending on your mood or the fridge contents.
So what will you need to create your basic Turkey Flipper?
500g of British turkey breast, cubed small – Red Tractor approved
2tbsp of flour
50ml of milk – Red Tractor approved
Good handful of your favourite cheese, grated – Red Tractor approved
Goose fat or lard, for frying
Optionally depending on what you fancy, you can add mushrooms, onion, papers, chillies… the possibilities here are endless…
- Prepare your turkey by cutting it into small cubes – not too small as you want to taste it
- Mix the eggs, milk and flour all together until you have smooth, double cream like batter
- Add salt, pepper and herbs to taste and mix well
- Grate a good handful of cheese
- Add turkey and grated cheese and mix well
- Now you are ready to fry!
- Make sure that your frying pan is hot. Do not make your “Flippers” to big as they will be difficult to turn over and there is a possibility that they will fall apart or worse not cook in the middle.
- Fry for 3-4 minutes on one side
- Turnover and fry again fry for 4-5 minutes
- Once both sides are golden brown remove from the heat and serve
They go very well together with freshly prepare Caesar salad, especially if you have some homemade dressing and croutons.
And once again, this time with some pictures 🙂
