Chow Down to Eurovision 2013 - Slovenia

Onto our third country in as many days, we really are moving along at a Contiki pace, well maybe just not as drunk. Slovenia's highest placing in a Eurovision final was 7th in 2001 and 1995, after first joining in 1993. Throughout the years Slovenia have been responsible for sending an array of performances to delight audiences from a James Bond theme in 1999, to cross dressing flight attendants, an operatic ET with a light up hand, mild bondage themes and a wolverine look-a-like.

Should I be too embarrassed to admit I made a replica of Slovenia 2003?


For the Slovenian dish I came upon a recipe for turkey, it is really just a sneaky way of getting Turkey to be part of the Chow Down to Eurovision 2013. I think this recipe will be a favourite amongst the Australian audience as it seems we love to crumb a poultry breast and cover it in cheese.

Turkey Schnitzel with Gorgonzola sauce
  • 4 turkey breast fillets
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (I used panko)
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1/4 cup oil and a knob of butter fry pan frying
For the sauce
  • 60g unsalted butter
  • 195g gorgonzola dolce, chopped
  • 200ml cream
  • pepper to taste
  • Beat the egg in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of water
  • Put the flour and breadcrumbs on 2 separate plates
  • Using a meat tenderiser pound the turkey breasts to flatten out a little.
  • Coat the turkey in the flour, egg and breadcrumbs
  • Heat the oil and butter in a hot frypan
  • Pan fry the turkey for 2 mins each side
  • Put the turkey on an oven tray and put in a 180 oven for 5-7 mins depending on thickness.
  • Season to taste
  • Serve blanched broccolini or chips and salad.
To make the sauce
  • In a medium saucepan heat the butter over a medium flame
  • Add the gorgonzola and cream and stir till melted and combined
  • Pepper to taste

It will be Straight into Love for Hannah this year in Malmö,
