As Kitchen Klutzes, we are getting mighty brave. This simple yet oh so delicious Turkey Rollup requires frying up bacon without burning down the house.
If that’s not enough to live on the edge and dance with danger, we’re going to put our knife skills and baking skills to work. Yeah, but trust me – this is really simple. I think the most dangerous part will be frying up the bacon. It’s a step you don’t want to skip. Although the bacon might not sound like an important ingredient, that smoky crunch really adds to the dish.
In case you haven’t guess it, today is National Kitchen Klutz Day. It’s that day when we celebrate all those well-meaning disasters in the kitchen. When things turn out right, we are thrilled. And when they don’t, our family sings our praises anyway. So enjoy the day – and those we love.
Turkey Club Crescent Rollups
4 strips Bacon
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
2 (8 oz) tubes Crescent Dough Sheets
1 cup Baby Spinach Leaves
3/4 lb Smoked Deli Turkey
Heat oven to 375-degrees. Spray a 13-inch by 9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Dice bacon. Place in a skillet over medium heat and cook until crisp. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Reserve bacon drippings for another purpose.
In small bowl, mix mayonnaise and garlic powder. Reserve 1/4 cup of the mayonnaise mixture, covered, in the refrigerator. Set remaining mayonnaise aside.
Unroll 1 dough sheet on work surface. Reshape the dough into a 12-inch by 8-inch rectangle. Spread 2 tablespoons of the mayonnaise mixture onto dough sheet, to within 1-inch of one of the short ends, leaving room to seal the seams.
Layer 1/2 cup of the spinach leaves, half of the bacon and half of the turkey over the dough. Starting on the short, topped edge of rectangle, roll up tightly, and pinch seam together. Repeat with remaining dough sheet, mayonnaise, spinach leaves, bacon and turkey.
With serrated knife, carefully cut each roll into 6 slices, about 1 1/4 inches wide.
Arrange spiral sides up in baking dish, reshaping into round shapes, if necessary. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and dough is baked through. Cool 5 minutes.
1/2 cup Baby Spinach Leaves
2 firm Roma Tomatoes
While the turkey club bakes, chop spinach leaves and dice tomatoes for garnish. Set aside.
Once turkey club is baked, remove from oven. Remove reserved mayonnaise mixture from refrigerator; transfer to small, resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut small corner off one of the ends of bag, and squeeze onto roll-ups. Garnish with spinach and tomatoes. Serve warm and enjoy.
Looking for something sweet at the end of the day? As luck would have it, today is also National Cupcake Lovers Day. Now we could get busy in the kitchen whipping up some wonderful cupcakes, or better still stop at a bakery to pick up some of those amazing cupcakes. Arrange the cupcakes on a footed serving platter, toss the box and take all the credit.
