Gluten Free Turkey Pesto Dippers, Chips and a Warm Salad

The idea for this recipe came from a Channel Mum video I watched recently. In the video another channel was making Chicken Pesto Dippers and I thought they looked really yummy. The dippers in the video were made with breadcrumbs so sadly I can’t eat them. (For those of you that don’t know I have a gluten intolerance).

So I decided to try these with turkey and my breadcrumb alternative, ground flax seed. Ground flax seed makes a brilliant gluten free crumb. It turns crispy and golden brown just like breadcrumbs. Plus it doesn’t contain any chemical nasties like gluten free bread. I have used ground flax seed on fish cakes and chicken dippers. It worked so well I thought I would try it with these delicious dippers too.

My lovely husband Howard and son Ted really enjoyed this dinner and were very impressed with the dippers. We were not disappointed and we would recommend trying this recipe.

Gluten Free Turkey Pesto Dippers

Turkey Pesto Dippers, Chips and Salad were a huge success. They are great for kids and big kids like my husband. I would recommend making this dinner on the day. The pesto could be made in advance and frozen. However, that is the only part I would freeze for this dish. However you decide to make this dinner, as always, please enjoy.
