This tasty recipe is a fun finger food for kids. Using high-fibre breakfast cereal adds the right amount of crunch to the turkey fingers.


1 ¼ lb boneless skinless turkey breast 600 g
1 tbsp Dijon or yellow mustard 15 ml
1 tsp canola oil 5 ml
2 cups bran flakes 500 ml
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese 30 ml
1 tsp Italian herb seasoning or dried oregano leaves 5 ml
  Oven Fries  
sweet potato, peeled and cut into strips
parsnips, peeled and cut into strips
1 tsp canola oil 5 ml
1/2 tsp chili powder 2 ml


Step 1
Cut turkey breast into finger size strips and place in a bowl. Add mustard and oil and using your hands coat turkey fingers evenly.

Step 2
Place bran flakes into a large re-sealable bag and crush to look like breadcrumbs. Add cheese and seasoning. Add turkey fingers to bag, one at a time, and shake to coat. Place coated turkey onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat with all the turkey fingers; set aside.

Step 3
Oven Fries: In a large bowl, combine sweet potato and parsnip strips. Add oil and chili powder and toss to coat evenly. On a second parchment paper lined baking sheet, spread fries in single layer onto sheet.

Step 4
Place fries in bottom third of preheated 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes. Move fries to top third of oven and place turkey fingers on bottom third of oven for 15 minutes.*


Ask little chefs to help peel the vegetables using a peeler.
Make a double batch of the turkey fingers and freeze for those hectic weekdays.
Change it up — try chicken or lean pork instead of turkey.  
Switch up the herbs and try dried parsley, basil or thyme.  If you have fresh herbs, just chop finely and use twice as much.  
* Use a digital food thermometer to check that turkey has reached an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
