Bernard Matthews invited me to come up with a family fun meal with one of their fresh breaded products so I nipped to my local supermarket and picked up a tray of their 6 fresh breaded turkey steaks for only £3! How economical is that?
They are incredibly easy to cook under the grill or in the oven and this time I chose the oven method for 35 minutes as I wanted to serve them with roasted summer vegetables and they are cooked in the oven too.
For summer roasted vegetables I chose a selection of courgettes, peppers (use yellow and orange) red onion, baby tomatoes, spring onions and basil. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil and pop in the oven at 220C for 30 – 35 minutes until they soften and begin to colour.
The Bernard Matthews turkey steaks go in for the last 15 minutes until golden and voilà your meal is ready.
Husband had a spoonful of coleslaw with his and some potato salad too.
Other ideas included grilling the steaks and serving sliced into pieces on a salad.
You could try serving the steaks with a pizzaiolo sauce which is a tomato sauce with olives and mozzarella added at the last minute so it melts in the sauce.
Another idea we have tried recently to make a great meal for the kids was Turkey nugget kebabs. This time using some of the the Bernard Matthews frozen turkey pieces. By serving this regular meal in a slightly different way peaked the imagination and the kids loved them. They are simple and quick to do and great for playdates too
Turkey nugget kebabs
Cook the Bernard Matthews frozen turkey pieces as directed on the packet. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
Whilst cooking take one long mozzarella and cut into pieces across the width, then cut up some yellow peppers. I had basil leaves to hand and baby tomatoes.
Place the food on the kebab stick in a colourful manner and serve!
