These were so fun! Easy to make and fun to eat. Who doesn’t like dipping things into stuff? Especially when those things are stuffed with more stuff! May I introduce… Easy Cheesy Turkey Dippers. Ha, when did this blog turn into a kids cookbook? I don’t know. But if I had kids, I bet they’d like these. I know the dog would gobble a couple of these dippers up if she got the chance. They were easy enough for a kid to make, too. (With help!) Also needed: a working oven. Which I now have!

Cheesy Turkey Dippers (makes 12-20)
1 Tbsp Butter
1/2 cup Shallots, diced
1 clove Garlic, finely diced
1/2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning, or Herbs de Provance, or some mix of fresh or dried Basil, Parsley, Oregano, etc.
S&P
1 Egg
1 lb Ground Turkey
2 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
6-10 Mini Mozzarella Balls, halved
Dipping Sauce

Preheat to 350. Melt the butter and saute the shallots, garlic and seasonings until soft. Let cool. Scramble egg and mix with turkey and 1/2 cup panko. Add the shallot mix and combine. Use your hands to encase each half mozz ball with the turkey mix:

Once rolled into balls, roll balls in extra panko crumbs until coated and place on a greased pan. Bake for 20 minutes, and serve hot with hot dipping sauce.

    I want to try this too! do you think it’d work as a meal or more of an appetizer ?? Maybe a meal if you included a vegetable side?

    Sara – could be a meal if you served with a salad and some garlic bread 😉 (or something along those lines…) otherwise, they are great apps! You can always make them bigger or smaller to suit your situation.
