December: Christmas Turkey Plait

December: Christmas Turkey Plait

On the Esporão 2017 Planner you’ll find recipes by some of our co-workers, one for each month, with pairings to try at home. Every and each one of them were illustrated by the portuguese artist Ana Gil, architect by formation, and a gastronomy illustrator by heart.

For December, Catarina Santos, Marketing Director, suggests a recipe in the spirit of the season and very easy to do – the Christmas Turkey Plait.

Ingredients

  • Puff pastry
  • Leftover roast turkey
  • Esporão's extra-virgin olive oil
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • 1 tsp of flour
  • Milk as needed

Preparation

Brown some garlic and onion in olive oil. Add the turkey in small pieces and the tablespoon of flour previously dissolved in milk. Stir until well miced. Roll out the puff pastry and place the turkey filling in the middle. Make lateral and diagonal cuts and braid the pastry. Bake in a preheated oven (180ºC)  for 20 minutes. Serve with Dijon mustard and a green salad.
