This is a VERY simple way to enjoy Middle Eastern flavors in an American format... the hot dog! Serve on a bun or wrapped in a pita. I like adding banana-ketchup, but any condiment will do! Tahini might be appropriate. Rice or couscous or an Israeli salad would make a fine side dish. Use ground turkey with a 7% or 8% fat content, as the super lean turkey will be harder to cook with.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together cumin, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. In a large bowl, crumble the ground turkey; slowly work in seasoning mixture with your hands, distributing seasoning as evenly as possible. Divide into 8 equal balls. On a flat surface, roll out each turkey ball into a tube shape.
  3. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray, and set it over medium heat. Place turkey tubes into the skillet; cook, turning frequently, until golden brown on all sides. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven about 6 minutes.

I already rated this once before, but I had to write again! So good and so easy. I used plain yogurt mixed with mango chutney as a sauce and served with warm tortillias. Thank you so much. I only used about 3/4 of a teaspoon of each spice... perfect!UPDATE ON REVIEW: I now usually serve with warm whole wheat pita bread and mix the mango chutney with light sour cream....YUM!

Very easy and surprisingly authentic tasting. My husband told me that these taste as good as the kafta (beef sausages) he gets at our favorite Middle Eastern restaurant. We ate them two to a pita with tzatziki sauce. My only complaint was that they were a little dry -- I think I cooked them too long. Next time I will not let them brown so much in the pan or only bake them for four minutes.

We love these! I mix the spices in early in the day and refrigerate until just before dinner. It is wonderful to have another low-fat decadance up my sleeve. Thank you!
