GF and DF Spicy Turkey Dippers

GF and DF Spicy Turkey Dippers

My husband Howard and I love a spicy meal. So I decided to try turning my ordinary turkey dippers into spicy ones. Turkey can be a very plain meat. So it’s a great one to use when you want to add a lot of flavour to a dish. I have made Turkey Dippers but I had never thought about making them with spices.

For a bread crumb replacement I use ground flax seed. It makes a surprisingly crispy coating. Plus adding the spices makes it extra flavoursome and so tasty. For my son I made plain turkey dippers then I added the spice to the flax seed mix and made our dippers. These were so yummy and I just had to share the recipe with you.
