4 eggs, beaten

1 cup (235 ml) chopped pretzels

1 pound (450 g) wild or store-bought turkey breast, sliced about 1/4-inch (6.3 mm) thick

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon (14 g) butter

Put flour, eggs, and chopped pretzels in separate bowls. First, coat the turkey slices in flour, then the egg, and finally the pretzels. Heat oil and butter in 12-inch (30 cm) frying pan. Gently place breaded turkey slices in pan. Reduce heat to low. Cook about 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

Remove from pan, drain on paper towels, and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with thin streams of honey and serve immediately.
