Pistachio and Cranberry Stuffed Turkey Breast Roll
- 1-1.5kg boneless turkey breast roll
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 40g butter
- 1 onion chopped
- 100g chopped bacon
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 100g fresh bread crumbs
- 1 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
- 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 100g dried cranberries
- 50g chopped pistachios
- Ground salt and pepper
Heat the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally for 4 minutes until softened. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes until cooked through. Add the garlic and cook for
another minute. Tip everything into a large bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, parsley, sage, dried cranberries, and pistachios, season well and stir together. Leave to cool completely before using.
Preheat the oven to 190 deg C (375 deg F/Gas 5).
Put the turkey breast, skin-side-down, on a board. Spoon the cooled stuffing down the middle of the breast and then roll up the turkey to enclose the stuffing. Tie the turkey with kitchen string every 2 cm (about an inch) to secure and then
place in a large roasting tin. Brush the entire surface of the turkey with melted butter. Roast for 40 minutes, or until golden brown and the juices run clear when you poke a skewer into the thickest part of the breast.
Cover loosely with foil and leave to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
