Turkey & Fontina Melts

An elegant presentation of turkey layered with spinach and cheese, yet surprisingly quick to make. Round out the meal with a side of whole-wheat pasta, a salad and a glass of Pinot Noir.

Serves 2

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 turkey cutlets, (8 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry, (see Note)
  • 1 6-ounce ba baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Fontina cheese
  • 1 teaspoon butter

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Position rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat broiler.

Step 2

Sprinkle both sides of turkey with flour. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the turkey to a plate.

Step 3

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and shallot to the pan; cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add sherry and spinach; cook, stirring constantly, until the spinach is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Step 4

Carefully mound equal portions of the spinach on top of the turkey. Transfer the spinach-topped turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan. Top the spinach with cheese and transfer to the oven. Broil until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 5

Transfer the melts to 2 plates. Add the butter to the pan and whisk into the juices over medium-high heat until melted, about 30 seconds. Drizzle over the melts.
