Spiced Turkey Minis – The Ultimate Appetizer
NC)—This time of year marks the start of seasonal parties and friendly drop-ins. Every party host needs a go-to appetizer recipe in their repertoire. One of my favourites is my Spiced Turkey Minis. Not only are they simple to make, they are delicious and perfect for this time of year. Your guests will love them.
Roger Mooking’s Spiced Turkey Minis
1 turkey leg
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp coriander ground
1/2 tsp cumin ground
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rub turkey with all ingredients and place on a roasting tray. Roast for 30 minutes or until turkey is fully cooked. Allow to cool.
Add red wine vinegar to the roasting tray and scrape the yummy bits from the bottom of the pan and add to a bowl. Once cool enough to handle, remove turkey from bones by scraping with a fork. Hand chop until diced and add to bowl.
Chili Mayo for Turkey Sliders
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup of Sambaal Oleck chili paste
Combine until both ingredients are well combined. Set aside.
Putting it together:
On a mini burger bun of your choice, add turkey salad, top with baby arugula and chili mayo.
