Main – Turkey Roulades with Sage Stuffing
This turkey recipe is great if you are time poor plus who wants to spend all of Christmas day in the kitchen?
4 x 180g free range or organic turkey or chicken breast or thigh fillets
2 tbs chopped sage plus whole fried sage leaves to serve
4 thin free range or organic pork & herb sausages, casings removed
24 flat pancetta slices, rind removed
Place fillets between sheets of baking paper and use a rolling pin to flatten to 1.5cm thick. Season and scatter with chopped sage. Divide sausage meat among fillets and roll up tightly to enclose.
Arrange 6 pancetta slices on a work surface, slightly overlapping. Place 1 fillet at the bottom edge of the pancetta and roll up to enclose, then wrap tightly in foil. Repeat with remaining pancetta and fillets, then chill for 1 hour to firm up.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Place parcels on a baking tray and roast for 35 minutes.
Remove foil and bake for a further 10 minutes or until pancetta is golden and the meat is cooked through.
Slice the roulades, garnish with fried sage leaves and serve with delicious side vegetables or salads.
