Turkey Cigars with Cranberry Dijon Dipping Sauce

1/2  pound ground turkey
4  tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
2  tsp. minced fresh parsley
2  tsp.s jellied cranberry sauce
2  tsp.s ground walnuts, divided
1  tsp. honey
1  tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2  tsp. salt
1/2  tsp. pepper
12  sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
6  Tbsp. butter, melted

Dipping Sauce:
1/2  Cup jellied cranberry sauce
1/4  Cup Dijon mustard

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.

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.)

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.

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)


About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
