Turkey Prosciutto Cutlets
The two biggest advantages of turkey meat are that it provides high-quality protein and contains hardly any fat. It is also rich in niacin, which supports the metabolism, and zinc, which is important for a smoothly functioning immune system and normal cell division.
This dish pairs beautifully next to roasted rosemary potatoes.
