Southwest Grilled Turkey Cutlets

Ever go into your freezer for something else and find a package of meat that you totally forgot about? It happened here today – I went to take out a roast to thaw for tomorrow’s dinner and found a package of turkey cutlets.  Since I had no plan for dinner, this was a sign!

Add some spices to give the turkey cutlets a kick and throw them on the grill – easy and quick since the cutlets will grill pretty quick. Can’t get much simpler than this!

    1. Thanks for sharing Joanne! The cutlets are great, both of my girls said they had a great kick to them as I usually make the cutlets a bit boring lol.

  1. I am looking to incorporate more protein into my diet by eating more turkey. This southwest grilled turkey looks like a delicious way to spice up the meat. Like you said, it is easy and quick since the cutlets grill so quickly. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ll have to go buy some turkey to try this out.
