Panko-Crusted Turkey Breasts with Pomegranate-Pear Sauce
On Tuesday this week, The University of North Carolina Tar Heels faced off against they Wildcats of Kentucky in a good old fashioned game of Basketball. The place to watch Carolina games is down at Von Scrumptious' apartment, and luckily for the food monster, she decided to whip up her entry into the Pom Wonderful brand Pomegranate contest. Thanksgiving it seems came early when she decided to create what she calls, Panko-Crusted Turkey Breasts with Pomegranate-Sauce. She details how to make the Sauce, which combines pears, pomegranate seeds and a pomegranate juice and cranberry reduction. The Turkey Breasts were moist, juicy, and covered in Panko (or as I like to call it, Plinko, a la The Price is Right), which gave it a lighter healthier flavor than breadcrumbs.
Unfortunately, her Rosemary Red Potato dish that accompanied dish is only briefly mentioned. They were fantastic in their own right, and even better with a little sauce over top as well. To top it all off, she served homemade pumpkin bread to make sure we were all in the holiday spirit. The heels looked like they hadn't eaten in awhile, playing with a hunger to win that Kentucky obviously lacked. The bad news, the freshman seven footer, Tyler Zeller, will be out with a wrist injury for most if not all of the season. Well, at least I have delicious comfort food in Panko-Crusted Turkey Breasts with Pomegranate-Sauce. Seriously, get over to Von Scrumptious' page and try the recipe, you will not be let down.
