Stuffed Turkey Roulade

Stuffed Turkey Roulade

Sharing is caring!

This Turkey Roulade is made with turkey breast which is stuffed with leftover chicken livers and rice from the Christmas Turkey.

Τhis dish is perfect for any party and your guests will be impressed.  

The filling is based on the same filling I stuff the Christmas Turkey but in case you don’t feel like stuffing a whole turkey this is equally tasty, less messy and costs less.

If you have leftover stuffing when preparing your Christmas turkey, you can freeze it and use it another day or make it from scratch.

The best part is that this dish can be prepared in advance and the only thing you then have to do is bake it with no supervision at all, so that you can have time with your guests.

Prepare the stuffing:

  1. The stuffing can be made in advance and may be deep-freezed or made from the previous day.
  2. Wash the livers and let them drain from the water then mince them or cut them into small pieces (as small as possible). If you have a food processor where you can grind them, so much the better.
  3. Peel and finely chop the onion.   In a large skillet or sautéing  pan, heat the oil and slightly sauté the onion.  Before browning add the giblets and sauté as well.  Add wine and let the alcohol evaporate.  Add, salt, pepper, cinnamon, parsley, boiled and peeled chestnuts (or almonds), raisins, tomatoes and the water and let is simmer for 15 minutes.
  4.  Add the rice, lower heat and stir until all the fluids have been absorbed, mixing at regular intervals.
  5. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before stuffing the turkey.

Preparing the Roulade:

  1. Wash the turkey fillet and pat dry.   With a sharp filleting knife you will have to carve the meat so that it will become like a big slice of about 1 – 1 1/2 cm thick.   Season with salt, pepper and oregano.
  2. Spread a layer of filling (about 1 cm) on the turkey and then form into a roulade (use toothpicks to secure).
  3. Place each one on a separate piece of parchment paper and roll, removing the toothpicks.   Wrap it also in aluminum foil.   Place in a baking tin and bake for 1 hour.  If you like you can also add seasoned potatoes to cook together with the turkey.  In this case you will add, olive oil, lemon juice, and water.  In case you are baking potatoes you will have to turn them at least once and add water, if necessary.
  4. Remove turkey from parchment and aluminum foil and allow to cool completely before slicing.

    Thank you for the great submission. Giz and I made a turkey roulade before and it was a hit. This one looks very tasty as well! Would you believe that Giz and I were up until 1:00am talking about food for the wedding last night? I foresee many sleepless nights in my future.

    Thank you for your nice wishes for me and R.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you other submission too - smoked salmon is always a hit with my family!

    Oh Ivy, how beautiful is this. You're a dear friend and you can be sure this one will be included. I love it. I especially love the "bringing lots of grandchildren" part and I didn't even have to pay you to say that :)
