Peppered Turkey Bites Ingredients.

The best thing about this peppered turkey bites recipe is that it uses only 6 ingredients, yes, S I X ingredients, in other words, less time to shop and cook, and more time to relax and enjoy.

First is the healthy keto-friendly bread that I am currently loving — Sara Lee® Delightful™ White Made with Whole Grain Bread. This bread is a low-fat food (hello), cholesterol-free food, contains no high fructose corn syrup, and 45 calories per slice! You surely cannot beat it.

Additionally, you will need some leftover Turkey; amazingly, you can make these turkey bites with white or dark turkey meat; I used turkey breast (white), also, bell peppers, onions, olive oil, and salt. I stopped at my local Walmart to grab everything I needed to make this recipe. The bread was easy to find on the bread aisle.

Description

These healthy and easy to make peppered turkey bites on keto-friendly bread is about to be your best appetizer for any occasion, especially during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. These little bites are scrumptious and nutritious appetizers/snacks.


Scale

Ingredients

4 slices of Sara Lee® Delightful™ White Made with Whole Grain Bread

1 (already cooked) Turkey Breast (any other part works just fine)

1 bulb of onions

3 big bell peppers (2 red and 1 orange; any color works just fine)

¼ cup of Olive oil (plus another tablespoon spoon or oil spray)

12 teaspoons of salt (always use salt according to your taste).


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Cut one slice of bread into four squares (do the same for all the bread), then lay on a baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle or spray olive oil on both sides of each bread “square,” and sprinkle a little salt on both sides as well.
  4. Bake for 7 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other side (a total of 10 minutes), set aside.
  5. Cut the turkey meat into squares/cubes, spread on a baking tray, sprinkle a little salt, and broil in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes or until crisp and golden. Keep eyes on this, not to overcook. Then set aside.
  6. Wash, and quarter the bell peppers and onions, then add to the food processor. Roughly blend so that you can still see the pepper/onion fragments.
  7. Set a clean pan on the stove, and add olive oil, and then allow to warm up. Add the bell pepper onion blend as soon as the oil is hot.
  8. Cover, and cook until the liquid visibly reduces; stir now and then while it cooks. This may take up 20 – 30 minutes, depending on the quantity of the blend.
  9. Season with salt according to your taste, then add the turkey bites into the peppered sauce; make sure to properly incorporate, cover to simmer on low for another 5 – 7 minutes. Taste and adjust flavors.
  10. Scope peppered turkey bites unto baked bread bites to serve. This recipe serves up 8 – 10 people.

Notes

Use seasoned white or dark turkey meat for this recipe; either would work just fine.
Keep eyes on the bread while they bake; it cooks quickly and can easily burn. You want crisp bread, not a burnt bread.

Start by baking for 7 minutes on one side, then flip, and complete baking for another 3 minutes.
