I can't seem to get enough roast turkey this time of year, but some nights -- even for me -- it can become monotonous. When I really want to serve something different and unique, I try to spice things up....literally. Between all my experimenting adding extra flavor to Chloe's baby food as well as whipping up dish after dish for Thanksgiving, I've been in my spice drawer non-stop lately. And that's where I got the inspiration for this dish.

There are so many ways to change up regular roast turkey. You can go for barbecue, make sandwiches, maybe even make a turkey salad. But why not try an Indian spin? It sounds exotic, but it's really easy to do and the flavor is amazing! I love using garam masala and since it contains cinnamon, it has a real kid-friendly flavor. Instead of the traditional Cranber-Wee Sauce I usually serve with my turkey, I quickly cooked up this Apricot Apple Puree, the perfect sweet accompaniment with this juicy turkey breast.

I promise this is a taste no one will get tired of in your house.

Apricot Apple Chutney (Makes 1 1/2 Cups)

1 Apple, cored, peeled and cubed
1/2 Cup Dried Apricots (preferably unsulphered)
1/2 Cup Raisins
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Tsp Curry Powder

1. Place all the ingredients in a small pot and cook over low to medium heat for 10 minutes.
2. Puree in a food processor.
3. Serve.
