Exceptional Turkey Rolls

This is something I made when I didn’t know what to make.. but it turned out very yummy!  A balsamic reduction was the perfect component to bring these treats from basic to remarkable. Definitely a great BBQ or party munchy with a major comfort food vibe.


  • Pastry dough, 1 sheet
  • 1/4 purple onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp capers
  • Few slices turkey breast
  • Few slices provolone
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup or so of balsamic reduction (1/2 cup balsamic heated on low heat till thickened)


  • Baking sheet
  • Frying pan, for onion
  • Flour, for dough
  1. Prep pastry dough as per box instructions. (Thaw, handle with flour, preheat oven, 400*.) Lay out dough.
  2. Melt butter in frying pan, add onion and cook in med hi till browned. Add capers when onion is nearly finished cooking.
  3. In a small bowl whisk egg and mustard, brush over dough’s “up” side.
  4. Thinly layer turkey, cheese, onions. Roll dough carefully, starting at side closest to you. Try to seal roll as best as possible.  Cut in 1/2 inch slices. Arrange on greased baking sheet.
  5. Brush each with egg mixture.
  6. Cook for about 15-17 mins, until golden brown.
  7. Drizzle with balsamic reduction before serving.


Cheese on Toast

I don’t think enough Americans know about this.

You could make this in the broiler or toaster oven, as they do in England.

All you need is bread, cheese, and worcestershire.

I used a butter spread and fried on med heat on both sides, topped with swiss cheese and a few big shakes of worcestershire. Cover with lid to let cheese bubble.


Apple and Goat Cheez Hors D’oeuvres, with Honey, Spanish Almonds, and Black Pepper

This is a  simple thing you could make as an appetizer, snack, or even for a holiday party, in no time.  The flavours are nicely interesting, but the best part is you don’t have to actually cook anything.


  • Granny smith apples
  • Lemon juice, about 1 tsp or so for brushing
  • Goat cheese
  • Spanish almonds, or other somewhat soft nut
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Black pepper, finely ground

Cut apples into level slices and brush lightly with lemon juice. This prevents apples from browning too quickly. Top with goat cheese.  Using your fingers is probably best.

Add nuts, and drizzle honey over centers.  Carefully dust with cinnamon and pepper.

That’s it!
