Sleepy time wild turkey recipe

Recently on the blog we talked about how lack of sleep effects you, and I gave you some tips on how to sleep better starting immediately. Fortunately, several foods may help, thanks to their content of sleep-regulating hormones and brain chemicals, including melatonin and serotonin. Additionally, some foods contain high amounts of specific antioxidants and nutrients, such as magnesium, that are known to enhance sleep by helping you fall asleep faster or stay asleep longer. It's best to eat these foods 2-3 hours before trying to fall asleep so that you don't experience symptoms of acid reflux!

So today I'm giving you a wild turkey with sage and rice recipe that should help you drift off to sleep within hours after eating it!


  • 8 (1/4 Inch Thick) Turkey Cutlets

  • 1 1/2 Cups Walnuts

  • 3/4 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs (Or Homemade Breadcrumbs)

  • 3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • 8 Medium Fresh Sage Leaves

  • Salt & Pepper

  • 1 Large Garlic Clove

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter

  • 1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil Plus 6 Tablespoons For baking

  • 1/4 Cup Chicken Broth

  • 2 Large Eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and pour the 6 tablespoons of oil over a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

  2. In a food processor, place half the walnuts, two of the sage leaves, the grated cheese, and breadcrumbs and process until the walnuts are finely ground.

  3. Place the walnut crumb mixture in a shallow bowl, and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Clean out the food processor, and then add the remaining walnuts, sage, and garlic and pulse until coarsely ground.

  5. Add the butter, 1/4 cup olive oil, and chicken broth and pulse until mixed.

  6. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

  7. Beat the two eggs in another shallow bowl, and then dip each cutlet first into the eggs, then into the walnut crumb mixture.

  8. Place the prepared cutlets on the prepared baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Turn the cutlet over and bake another 8 minutes.

  9. Spoon the sauce over the cutlets and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.

  10. Serve wild turkey with a side of roasted broccoli and wild rice.
