Hellmann’s “Stuffing” crusted Turkey Cutlets (and GIVEAWAY!!)


I grew up on mayonnaise. Not Miracle Whip….ewww.


I know, I know, it’s totally a preference thing and depends on what you grew up with. My husband grew up with Miracle Whip and I grew up with mayo. We still get along though.


But when I was growing up, my mother was raising 7 kids. She pinched her pennies, used coupons, shopped sales, and found deals the best she could. But there was one thing she never skimped on, and that was on mayonnaise. She always bought Hellmann’s® brand mayo because she insisted the taste was superior. No one ever dared slip some store brand mayo in her potato salad. No, never.


(And in case you’re confused……Hellmann’s mayo is the same as Best Foods mayo

 It just depends on which side of the Mississippi you live on.  Same company, same great taste.)


And now that I’m grown, raising my own family………I’d rather save money on toilet paper than on mayonnaise. And umm, I’m not kidding. :) For our household, it’s Hellmann’s® all the way. So when asked to try out a Hellmann’s® recipe for this upcoming holiday season, I jumped all over it. For me, it was easy. And I like to find new ways to use my favorite mayonnaise brand. Yum.


Bobby Flay has actually teamed up with Hellmann’s to come up with some delicious recipes that are quick and easy……..and to use up leftover turkey from the upcoming holiday season. Check, check, and check. I like fast and easy. And come on, Bobby Flay isn’t going to come up with tasteless recipes. He’s an Iron Chef!


And if you’re not sure you want to cook a whole bird this Thanksgiving or want an additional turkey option on your Thanksgiving menu…….you have got to try this.


All I have to say is juicy, crispy, and delicious.




Can’t you just see a platter of these on your Thanksgiving dining room table?


The crust was only on one side and was so crispy and flavorful, while the turkey was so juicy and tender. There was something about the mayonnaise mixture fused with the fresh parsley, poultry seasonings and breaded crust that totally surprised my taste buds. It had a nice familiar “thanksgiving turkey” flavor to it as well. But I guess I’d have to admit that my thanksgiving turkey has never tasted this juicy. (Oooh, I’m suddenly starving just typing this up!)



And because it was so quick, I’m going to have to make this up all year long.

I don’t have to wait until a holiday to have the time to make some incredibly tasty and moist turkey. Yum.



Want to see how it easy it was?



Here are the only ingredients:



And because I can’t eat regular bread crumbs, I had to make my own. I toasted about 8 slices of gluten free bread (Udi’s brand) in the oven for a few minutes. When the bread was toasted and dried out, I broke it up and threw it into the food processor. The results were perfect.



First, blending your mixtures:

1. Combine 2 cups of your plain bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons of chopped flat leaf parsley, and some salt and pepper to taste.

2. Then combine 1/4 cup of Hellmann’s® (or Best Foods®) mayo, 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard, and 1 tsp. poultry seasoning.

3. Blend ingredients well in their separate bowls.



Next, dipping your turkey cutlets:

1. Brush one side of each turkey cutlet with a generous portion of the mayo mixture.

2. Place the mayo side down into the bowl of bread crumbs. Press down gently with fingers to be certain the crumbs are adhering on the other side.

3. Place the turkey with the breaded side up on a plate, while you coat your other turkey cutlets on one side.

4. Heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a non-stick skillet (which I didn’t use but would have helped) over medium heat. (the directions said medium-high but that was too high on my stove.) Place 2 of your cutlets with the breaded side down and cook for 3 minutes. Then flip over and cook another 2 minutes on the non-breaded side.



Remove and serve.



And then thank Bobby Flay later for this warm and delicious yet seriously quick dish. Yum.






. . . . .



And ooooh, oooooh……..don’t forget about the giveaway[s]. (That’s right, there are TWO!)

    My hubby and I both grew up on Miracle Whip, and then realized shortly after we were married that Miracle Whip is the reason we didn’t like our mom’s sandwiches, deviled eggs, etc. We’re mayo people all the way! Now I spend half my life in the kitchen (or so it seems), so I’d love a cooking.com gift card!!

    Crista says:

    During my last pregnancy, I craved mayo so much that I was eating it out of the jar with a spoon. While I’m not that bad anymore, we still love mayo around here. Definitely gonna try this recipe!

    Hellmann’s is the ONLY brand of mayo I will ever use. We bought a jar of store brand mayo last month and I ended up throwing it out. Terrible. My granny raised me right by using Hellmann’s!

    Ashley, Just wanted to inform you that you misspelled Bobby Flay’s name right after the recipe….you wrote BOOBY….I found it quite comical though haha.

    I like mayo sparingly. I don’t know if I could rub my turkey in it, then fry it. It LOOKS delicious though! It’s all mental for me.

    Debbie B Sam says:

    Okay- so I saw someone else confess here, I’ll do the same. I have pictures, of me eating a bowl of Hellman’s mayo with nothing else in it! My Mom said I woke up one morning before anyone else, and that was my breakfast of choice, I was younger than five. I WILL NOT use anything else but hellman’s for sure! Will have to give this a try :)

    We are also hellmann snobs. The taste really is superior. I will say though that the Kirkland brand at Costco taste exactly the same. (or so close I can justify saving the 2dollars on their brand…..but when that hellmanns coupon comes out at Costco…I still buy hellmanns).

    Marin D says:

    I am the same way about mayo. I don’t eat a ton of it on sandiwches (I do cook with it a lot though) but I am still picky about the brand I buy. It has to be Best Foods or I don’t want it.

    Valerie Nelson says:

    The brand name switch is very interesting!!! I didn’t know they did that in the states, I thought it was just an international thing! In California (where I’m from), they sell under the brand name ‘Best Foods.’ The past 4 years I’ve split my time between England and California and in England they sell ‘Hellmann’s.’ Now I live in Holland and it’s back to ‘Best Foods,’ HA! It tastes the EXACT same though. Gotta love a new recipe, looking forward to trying it, thanks!

    huh, i didn’t know that it’s sold under best foods too. i’m with you there- there is nothing worse than off brand mayo!! ick

    I can’t use mayo if it isn’t Hellman’s. No other brand has that thick and wonderful consistency! Here’s to hoping I win a grocery card to buy some delicious mayo (hah, and other things.. that would be a ton of mayo)!
