Enjoy A Wonderful Dinner With This Homemade Turkey Roulade
Don’t be fooled by the complex name. This easy-to-cook Turkey Roulade dish is perfect for a memorable dinner. You will be surprised how simple it is to prepare and you’ll wonder why you haven’t thought of trying this before.
You can even prepare the dressing ahead of time and refrigerate for a later meal. If you’re a little bit intimidated cooking a whole turkey, then try this turkey breast. It’s smaller and takes less time to cook.
Let’s start cooking!
- 1 whole boneless turkey breast (2 halves) – with skin, about 4 pounds
- 1/2 cup dried cherries
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 3/4 pound italian sausage – casing removed
- 1 onion – chopped
- 1 stalk celery – chopped
- 2 cloves garlic – chopped
- 1Tbsp + 1 t. fresh thyme – chopped, divided
- 1 Tbsp + 1 t. fresh sage – chopped, divided
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt, fresh ground pepper
- 2 cups cooked wild rice blend
Preheat oven to 325. Place cherries in a bowl and cover with boiling water to soften while making filling.
Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until no longer pink, breaking up meat into smallish crumbles as it cooks.
Add onion and celery to sausage and cook until onion is translucent – about 5 minutes, Add garlic and 1 tbsp. each of the fresh chopped herbs. Saute one minute more. Add rice and drained cherries to the sausage mixture. Stir to combine.
Place turkey breast on a cutting board, skin side down, and butterfly each breast half, making a horizontal slice starting at the inner edge of each breast, and leaving the outer edge attached so they open out from the center like a book.
This creates a more even thickness of turkey for you to roll with your stuffing. Season all over with kosher salt & pepper.
Spread filling mixture evenly over the turkey, leaving a 1 inch border at the edges. (You will probably have some extra stuffing that you can warm up and serve on the side – bonus!) Gently roll each turkey breast half from the outside in to meet in the middle, so the skin will end up on the outside of the roll.
Turn over the turkey roll, placing seam side down, skin side up, and secure with kitchen string. Brush the outside of the turkey roll with melted butter mixed with remaining chopped herbs, and kosher salt & pepper. Place on baking sheet and place in oven.
Cook until thermometer reaches 155 degrees, about a 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours. If your turkey weighs less than 4 pounds, start checking the temperature at 1 and a half hours. You definitely do not want to overcook!
Remove turkey and let rest for 10 minutes, loosely covered with foil, before slicing. Slice and serve with your favorite gravy ad extra stuffing.
