Stuffed turkey with mlinci

Here comes the turkey! The turkey is a must, especially with homemade mlinci.

A classic that never goes out of fashion and one that is prepared at least several times a year for holidays that the people of Zagreb love so much. What makes it a classic? The excellent taste, of course! Zagreb-style turkey is practically a symbol of the holidays. Find a place for it on your table too.

 

Ingredients for 8-10 persons:

1 cleaned turkey / 3-4 kg

 

For stuffing:

2 large rolls

150 ml of milk

2 eggs

1 onion

40 g softened butter

150 g turkey liver

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

30 g pure lard

 

As a side dish:

300 g mlinci (thin dried flatbread)

 

Also:

150g carrots

3 celery stalks

150 g celery root

1 onion

Salt and ground black pepper

Preparation:

Cut buns into pieces, move to a suitable bowl and cover with milk. Add chopped liver, chopped parsley, chopped onions, butter, two eggs and season with pepper. Mix the ingredients well. After cleaning both the inside and outside surfaces of the turkey, season it with a mixture of salt and pepper and stuff it with the mixture of buns, liver and eggs. Grease the bottom of the baking dish, cover with chopped vegetables and place the stuffed turkey over them. Coat the turkey in lard, add water and bake for two and a half hours in an oven preheated to 220°C. Just before the turkey is done, break the mlinci (thin dried flatbread) into smaller chunks, salt them and pour boiling water over them. Leave to rest for a few minutes. When done, place the turkey on a cutting board and stray gravy. Cut the turkey in pieces. Drain the soft mlinci, overflow them with the gravy and stir. Serve hot together with stuffing of bread and turkey liver.

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.
