Touchdown Turkey Bites Step by Step Directions
Stack several slices of bread on cutting board, cut slices of bread into football shapes and then place on parchment paper ( I prefer these pre-cut sheets. You might think they are more wasteful but they are the exact size you need so there’s no guesswork. Place it on a large baking pan or cookie sheet. Brush with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
(I take all the extra bread edges and place them in an open jar I keep in the pantry to make my own whole grain breadcrumbs
Top with turkey mixture and grated cheese
Optionally you can spread just remove the crusts from the bread slices and fill your baking sheet with bread slices cut in half.
Pop into oven at 350° Bake 8 Minutes Check to see if cheese is melted how you like it.
Place on a serving plate and serve! Watch out for your fingers when you set the plate on the buffet, these will disappear.
If you want to be extra fancy you can pipe a mixture of cream cheese and plain greek yogurt or sour creek on each football in the shape of laces. We forgot to do it for these photos but there’s always next time.
You can make this recipe gluten-free by simply substituting gluten-free bread. Our favorite brands so far are Canyon Bakehouse or Out of the Breadbox.
