Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs


"This is a VERY simple way to enjoy Middle Eastern flavors in an American format... the hot dog! Serve on a bun or wrapped in a pita. I like adding banana-ketchup, but any condiment will do! Tahini might be appropriate. Rice or couscous or an Israeli salad would make a fine side dish. Use ground turkey with a 7% or 8% fat content, as the super lean turkey will be harder to cook with."

  2. In a small bowl, mix together cumin, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. In a large bowl, crumble the ground turkey; slowly work in seasoning mixture with your hands, distributing seasoning as evenly as possible. Divide into 8 equal balls. On a flat surface, roll out each turkey ball into a tube shape.

Not bad, the spices were a bit overpowering though. These were good in a hotdog bun or on their own.

Very easy and surprisingly authentic tasting. My husband told me that these taste as good as the kafta (beef sausages) he gets at our favorite Middle Eastern restaurant. We ate them two to a pit...

We love these! I mix the spices in early in the day and refrigerate until just before dinner. It is wonderful to have another low-fat decadance up my sleeve. Thank you!

Fantastic! I have made these sausages into patties as well. I never thought i could enjoy a low fat sausage without bread or egg. i like to dip these in dijon mustard and eat them for breakfa...

Excellent with hummus and tzatziki in a pita! Easy to prepare, and tasty!

We thought this was a great change from "the usual". I thought before I made them that it seemed like the recipe called for a lot of spices, but we decided after eating the meal that we wouldn'...

This had a great taste, but I didn't form it into tubes as directed. I ended up making this a loose meat sandwich, using pitas and a california style israeli salad from this site. The seasonin...

This was really good. I used large tsp amounts because I love strong flavours and I made mini loaves and as others suggested, put them in pitas with tzatziki, onions, tomatoes and they were sooo...

Wonderful!. I followed recipe exactly except for rolling out the meat. Instead I formed the meat around wooden skewers and cooked as per instructions. I served it with a peanut curry sauce and p...
