If you don't have pumpkin pie spice on hand, simply combine 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon with 1/8 teaspoon each ground allspice, nutmeg, and cloves.


2/3 cup canned whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/3 cup canned crushed pineapple
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon paprika
4 turkey cutlets (4 ounces each), halved crosswise
2 teaspoons olive oil

2 Preheat the broiler. Sprinkle the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and the paprika over the turkey cutlets. Brush the cutlets with the oil. Broil the cutlets 4 to 6 inches from the heat until lightly browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.

3 Serve the hot cutlets with the chilled relish. Makes 4 servings

Broiled Pork with Cranberry-Cherry Relish In the relish, step 1, substitute cherry all-fruit spread for the crushed pineapple. Substitute 4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each) for the turkey. In step 2, omit the paprika and use 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage and 1/2 teaspoon thyme and rub them over the pork, then sprinkle with the salt.
