Cranberry and Apple Stuffed Turkey Breasts

Ingredients:

2 skinless, boneless turkey breasts

1 apple, peeled, cored, chopped

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 cup mushrooms, chopped

4 bacon slices, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced

1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced

Cooking fat

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cooking twine

 

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. With a sharp knife, butterfly each breast open to lay flat. Place each breast between two sheets of waxed paper, and flatten with a mallet.

In a bowl, combine the apple, dried cranberries, walnuts, mushrooms, bacon, rosemary, thyme, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss until well mixed.

Spread the apple-cranberry stuffing on top of each breast, up to 1/4 inch from the edge. Roll up each breast tightly and tie with cooking twine. Season the rolled breasts generously on all sides.

Heat some cooking fat in a large ovenproof skillet placed over medium-high heat. Brown each turkey breast on all sides, 2-3 minutes per side.

Place the skillet in the oven, uncovered, and roast for 45-60 minutes. Allow the breasts to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
