The goober sauce is peanut butter based then add any fruit your child wants. We use bananas, mangos, strawberries, and peeled apples and pears. Make it fun and make sure the kids put the goobers in the sauce- That is half the fun!

  • 4 6-ounce turkey breast cutlets
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup sliced fruit, (Strawberries, mango, bananas- Good Goobers)

In a mixing bowl combine flour, oats and ground flax seed. In another mixing bowl lightly whisk the egg. Season the turkey cutlets with kosher salt and pepper. Add to the bowl of flour and thoroughly coat the turkey with the dry mixture.

Preheat a pan over medium heat, add the peanut oil.

Dip coated turkey in the egg mixture and place in the heated oil and cook until golden brown, turn over and brown the other side. Remove from the pan and hold until ready to serve, with sauce

In a non-reactive pan sweat the onions, garlic and ginger, in the juice of one lemon until aromatic. Add tomato paste and stir, then add the water and the blend with a whisk. Bring to a boil. Whisk in peanut butter. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Add “goobers” (fresh fruit) right before serving with the turkey cutlet.
