Spicy Turkey Steak and Cheese Toastie

Fajitas spiced turkey steak with cheese, chilli and tomato toastie

This was an idea which came about when turkey breast steaks were on special offer in my local supermarket a few nights back. I bought one and brought it home, without really having decided what I was going to do with it. It was therefore a search of the fridge and cupboards to see what was available that led to this particular, incredibly simple recipe idea being created.

Ingredients (Serves One)

6 ounce turkey breast steak
1 teaspoon fajitas spice mix
Vegetable, sunflower or similar oil for frying
1 tablespoon grated Cheddar cheese
1 medium green chilli, seeded and finely diced
Black pepper
2 slices of bread
4 slices from medium tomato
2 basil leaves, rolled and shredded

Starting to fry fajitas spiced turkey breast steak


Scatter half the fajitas spice mix over each side of the turkey steak, season with a little salt and gently massage it in with your fingers. If time permits, cover and leave to dry marinate for an hour.

Pour the oil in to a non-stick frying pan and bring it up to a medium heat. Lay the turkey steak in to the pan and fry for four to five minutes on the first side, still on a medium heat.

Grated cheddar cheese, green chilli and black pepper for topping turkey steak

Put the grated cheese in to a bowl and mix with the green chilli and some black pepper.

Turkey steak is turned to fry on second side

Turn the turkey steak to fry for another four to five minutes on its second side. Ensure it is properly cooked. Turn off the heat, push the pan to a cool part of your stove top and let it rest while you preheat your kitchen grill (broiler) to maximum.

Cheese and green chilli mix is laid on fried turkey steak

Carefully arrange the cheese and chilli mix on top of the turkey steak. Put the pan under the grill for a minute or so until the cheese is melted and bubbling. During this time, you should also put the bread slices in to your toaster.

Lay the two slices of toast on a serving plate and carefully lift the turkey steak on to one of them with a spatula.

Tomato slices and shredded basil top cheesy turkey steak

Lay the tomato slices on top of the turkey steak and scatter with the basil. Put the second slice of toast on top, press down very lightly and slice diagonally to serve.
