The National Turkey Federation's (NTF) "Turkey, Savor the Success" Web feature series on eatturkey.com will showcase turkey appetizers in March on a special recipe page. Twelve selections from commercial and non-commercial operators are highlighted including Panko Fried Turkey Croquettes with Mango Salsa (photo), Blackened Turkey on Sugarcane Skewers, Turkey Berry Spring Rolls and Turkey Spanikopita with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce.
"Turkey makes a fabulous appetizer whether it's presented as Smoking Dragon Wings or Pavo Quesadillas with Fruit Chutney," says NTF's Senior Director of Marketing and Communications Sherrie Rosenblatt. "It adapts to many cuisines as our recipe collection shows and ounce per ounce it's higher in protein and lower in saturated fat than other meats so it satisfies restaurant customers seeking variations on traditional appetizers."
Operators may access the appetizer recipe feature by simply logging on to eatturkey.com and clicking on the "Turkey, Savor the Success" box. This links to the featured recipe page where foodservice professionals can view the applications and link to even more recipes from a database of 70+ appetizers.
Every month eatturkey.com will have a new "Turkey, Savor the Success" feature from menu categories such as breakfast or kids' meals, from individual chefs in commercial and non-commercial operations or from ethnic cuisines such as Mexican and Caribbean. Once eatturkey.com showcases a feature it will be added to a "Turkey, Savor the Success" page and will continue to be linked to NTF's popular recipe database. Here foodservice professionals can access not only the new dishes, but also a library of more than 650 innovative turkey applications, nine "Virtual Menu" applications and 30 celebrity chef demonstrations.
