1 1/2 pounds turkey breast cutlets
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
120g all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten
150g bread crumbs
80g cornmeal
45g grated Parmigiano Reggiano
1 orange, zested
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves finely chopped
Olive oil or vegetable oil
450g bulk sweet Italian sausage or 3 short links removed from casing
1 medium onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, crushed
2 small to medium zucchini, cut into bite-size chunks
2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
45g butter
28g all-purpose flour
240ml red wine (recommended: Pinot Noir)
475ml turkey or chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Season the turkey cutlets with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Set up separate dishes with the flour, the eggs and the bread crumbs combined with cornmeal, cheese, orange zest and rosemary. Coat the cutlets in the flour, then in the egg, and then in the bread crumb mixture.

2) In a medium skillet, heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, and brown and crumble for 5 minutes. Stir in the onions, peppers, garlic, zucchini, thyme and salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and cook until the zucchini is tender, about 10 to 12 minutes

3) Heat a saute pan with 0.6cm of oil over medium to medium-high heat.

4) Add the cutlets, in batches, and cook until deep golden brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer the cutlets, when cooked, to a baking rack to keep crisp.

For the gravy:

5) Melt the butter in small skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the wine and reduce for a minute or so, then whisk in the stock and cook until thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

6) Mound the sausage and zucchini on serving plates, top with the cutlets, then douse with gravy and serve.
