Pancetta Crusted Turnips
4-5 turnips, washed, peeled and cubed
thinly sliced pancetta
1/2 c. sesame seeds
1 egg slightly beaten
oil - for deep frying
Heat oil to 350 and oven to 350 also.
Wash, peel and cube turnips into 1x1 in cubes. Wrap the turnips in pancetta, dip in egg wash and roll in sesame seeds.
Deep fry for about 1 minute or until seeds are golden brown (work in batches). Place on a paper towel to drain. Move to a baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until soft inside.
This was paired with mozzarella and spinach stuffed chicken breasts wrapped in the left over pancetta - team consensus....we will eat them again :)
