Asiago Honey Garlic Turkey Panini

At the beginning of the month I shared with you that I received some product from a new company (or at least new to me) called Gourmet Warehouse.  Today I want to share with you a panini sandwich that I made with one of their injectables.

Spiced Crock Pot Turkey Breast

Have you used your crock pot to make turkey?  When my hubby first came to America I made a whole turkey in the oven.. thinking that I would give him a taste of American cooking.  Well, he didn't like it, he thought it was dry and had no flavour.  He didn't want to have turkey again.  It was a few years later that we decided to try and make it in the crock pot and put in some spices and VOILA it was terrific.  Full of flavour and moist.  So since that day I have made my turkey in the crock pot.

I know, you are going to say .... everyone does that.  This is not new.  But what is new is what spices that I use and how I infuse the spices throughout the turkey breast, so that not only the outside has the flavour, every bite has it.

Here is how I do it.

3 lb turkey breast
1 garlic clove
1 inch fresh ginger
1 tbsp anise
1 tsp grains of paradise (you could use black pepper
1-2 tbsp onion
Salt water

Place turkey breast in water to cover and approx 1 tbsp salt.  Let sit while you mix your spices.
I use my mortar and pestle and grind together garlic, ginger, anise, grains of paradise and onion.  Add a small amount of water to this so it makes a paste.
Take turkey breast out of salt water, remove skin,  cut a few slits throughout the turkey.
Rub spices all over the turkey and into the slits that you cut.  Cover the breast with the skin and rub some spices over the skin.
Place turkey in crock pot.
Cook on low for 5-6 hours.   Remove from crock pot and let sit for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Cooks notes:
My crock pot is a 6 qt which is probably too big.  You could use a smaller one if you have it.  I do not add any liquid to my turkey as it has enough already.  Most of the time the liquid is covering the turkey breast when it is done.
If you don't have a mortar and pestle, a small food processor would work to grind the spices.  I have not tried this recipe with ground spices as I use fresh garlic, ginger and onion and whole anise and grains of paradise.

Turkey Chili with the Help of Mrs Dash

Oh the cold weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no where to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!!

This song has been going through my head just about everyday... We have had snow... and snow... and snow.  It just doesn't want to stop.  It also has been cold and windy.  This is the perfect time to make Chili. Even though you have to go out in the snow and the cold it isn't so bad if you can come into a warm bowl of Chili.

I am always filling out forms to get free samples and one of the samples that I got was Mrs Dash Chili Seasoning Mix.  I decided to try it and YUM!  I love the flavour that it gave my chili.  It even tasted better after sitting in the fridge for a couple of days.  I was not asked to do a review of this seasoning and but wanted to share this wonderful seasoning.  It makes it so much easier to make a great chili.

Turkey Chili

1 lb turkey (can also use ground beef or hamburger)
1/2 cup diced onion
1 garlic clove minced
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes (I used Red Gold) 
1 5 oz can tomato sauce
1 15 oz can kidney beans
1 pkg Mrs. Dash Chili Seasoning Mix
1 cup corn (I use frozen corn)

In large frying pan or saucepan, fry turkey. Add onions and garlic and continue to cook for a couple of minutes.
Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, Kidney beans, corn, Chili Seasoning Mix.  Bring to a boil and turn down and simmer for at least 15 minutes.

Using Up Leftovers With the Help of Pompeian Grapeseed Oil

I received this product from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

Last month I received Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and I made Mustard Crusty Chicken and Couscous Cake with Mango and Ginger Salsa.  So I was excited to receive their new product ~ Grapeseed Oil Spray.

I will be the first to say that I don't really like cooking sprays.  Needless to say I do use them once in a while. This Grapeseed Oil seems different from the first spray.  Instead of getting a mist or not much of anything from other sprays, this spray looks and feels like oil.

Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil is all natural and light. There is no propellant mixed in with the oil so it is 100% oil and you can see it as you spray.  I also love that by the pressure of your finger you can deliver the oil differently ~ by drip, steam or spray. I have used the oil on my waffle iron, making stir fry and sauteing and it has worked wonderfully.  It also worked perfectly for making Quesadillas and using up your Thanksgiving Leftovers.

Turkey and Cranberry Quesadilla
2 8in flour tortilla (can also use corn if you want to be gluten free)
left over turkey
bacon slice
left over cranberry sauce
Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil Spray

Spray cast iron pan or skillet with Grapeseed Oil Spray.
Add one tortilla to pan.
Spread desired amount of crumbled turkey, bacon, onions, cranberry sauce and cheese.
Add second tortilla over mixture.
Cook on medium high until cheese is melted.
Flip tortilla over and cook other side.

I will be buying this product and using this product and I hope you do too.

Disclamer:  I received this product,  from smiley360, for my honest review on this product.  All opinions are 100% mine. I did not receive any compensation for my review.
