Gen­tly spiced turkey crack­ers

Let's Talk - - LET’S BAKE -


• 1 ta­ble­spoon veg­etable oil

• 200g turkey cooked breast, finely chopped

• 1 small onion, finely chopped (ap­prox­i­mately 65g)

• Pinch of salt

• 1 small red eat­ing ap­ple, cored and finely chopped

• 1 tea­spoon medium curry pow­der

• 150g full-fat crème fraiche

• Juice of half a lemon

• 1 ta­ble­spoon fresh co­rian­der, roughly chopped

• 50g ready-to- eat dried apri­cots, chopped

• 25g flaked al­monds

• Salt and pep­per to taste

• 6 sheets filo pas­try

• Ap­prox­i­mately 50g but­ter, melted


1 Pre-heat the oven to 200C (180C fan/gas mark six).

2 Heat the oil in a small fry­ing pan over a medium-low heat.

3 Gen­tly sauté the chopped onion with a pinch of salt un­til it is soft and translu­cent but not coloured at all.

4 Stir in the curry pow­der and cook for a fur­ther minute be­fore re­mov­ing the pan from the heat and set­ting aside to cool com­pletely.

5 In a large bowl, stir to­gether all the re­main­ing in­gre­di­ents with the cooled onion and curry pow­der mix.

6 Un­fold a sheet of filo pas­try and brush the sur­face all over with melted but­ter. Then cut the sheet in to three rec­tan­gles by slic­ing it width­ways.

7 Place one dessert spoon of the turkey mix at the short end of one of the rec­tan­gles, then roll up the pas­try.

8 Brush the roll with melted but­ter and then pinch the ends to form a cracker shape.

9 Place the cracker on a bak­ing sheet lined with bak­ing parch­ment.

10 Re­peat the process with the re­main­ing filo to make a to­tal of 18 crack­ers.

11 Bake the crack­ers for 15 to 20 min­utes un­til they are crisp and golden brown.

12 Leave the crack­ers to cool slightly be­fore serv­ing.


Do not be tempted to sub­sti­tute the full-fat crème fraiche for a low­fat al­ter­na­tive as they can be less sta­ble when cooked and the flavour will not be as good.

You can tie chives around the ends of the crack­ers to dec­o­rate.

This fill­ing can be used as it is to fill pre-cooked filo cases or even sand­wiches.

Crispy and gen­tly spiced, these turkey crack­ers are a real treat.
