Thankgiving Turkey Roulade with 5-Minute Stuffing

Written by chanie on November 19th, 2012

When the “Kosher Connection” Team decided to feature stuffing for the November LinkUp, I was so excited to post this recipe! I also happen to be doing a Thanksgiving demo tonight, so the timing was perfect to develop this dish to perfection. I prefer to make individual turkey roulades using turkey cutlets, but you can also make one larger one using a turkey london broil (essentially a skinless, boneless turkey breast half) that’s been butterflied and pounded. The visual impact is enough to make everyone at the table ooh and ahh. And that’s before they’ve even tasted it.

Now I love a beautiful plate of food as much of the other person, but I don’t like to spend hours in the kitchen. To simplify this recipe, I decided not to sear the turkey breasts (this gives it a nice brown color all around) because that would require me to tie each one up with kitchen twine. Instead, I just rubbed them down with some paprika, garlic powder and olive oil, baked seam-side down in the pan. My 5-Minute (no-joke!) stuffing also keeps things simple, but you can easily stuff the roulades with any store-bought filling (even cold cuts, like in this recipe).

So, if you’re making thanksgiving for a small group, and a whole turkey seems too large for your crowd (or like me, you’re daunted by the thought of cooking the huge bird), give this beautiful and delicious recipe a try!

Gobble, gobble!

One taste of this fantastic stuffing and you’d never imagine it took only 5 minutes to make! There are few tricks here! Firstly, instead of sauteing up onion and garlic, I just use onion and garlic flavored croutons! Nifty, right? Then, I add just a touch of poultry seasoning (a little goes a long way!) to give it that been-stuffed-into-a-bird-for-hours quality! Using frozen spinach not only eliminates work, it also adds a beautiful touch of green – so festive and autumnesque!

  1. So smart to make a roulade instead of making the whole bird! So many people are intimidated by that huge turkey (including me) and individual portions are much more doable. I will totally be using this recipe for chicken and veal cutlets also!!!

    This is a beautiful dish. We eat turkey frequently, so while I do a big roasted one for TG, this recipe is useful for — New Year’s when I have company. Thanks!

  3. I love that there is healthy spinach in your stuffing and how easy it is, even I use my own homemade croutons. Also, your picture came out amazing, great job.

    Okay this is totally my type of recipe. I may just make this on Thursday, although I don’t have an official Thanksgiving dinner. I love you link up but do I need to only post a recipe??

    If I’m using a 2lb.turkey london broil will the stuffing recipe be enough to fill it? I want to make this for Shavuos so please let me know asap! Thanks

    Chanie, when you say a package of turkey cutlets, how much is that in weight? I’m in Israel and we don’t have the same packages… thanks!
