Mushroom & Brie Stuffed Turkey Roll

  • Prep Time 20 min
  • Total Time 1 h 30 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter, divided 30 mL
  • 1/4 lb mushrooms, finely chopped 125 g
  • 1 leek, finely, chopped (white and light green parts only)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary 10 mL
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper, divided 2 mL
  • 1 1/4 lb boneless, skinless turkey breast 625 g
  • 2 oz Brie, thinly sliced 60 g
  • 2 cups pitted cherries, fresh or frozen 500 mL
  • 1 cup red wine 250 mL
  • 1/3 cup honey 75 mL
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tbsp grainy mustard 30 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Sauté mushrooms, leek, garlic, rosemary and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper 6 to 8 min. until mushrooms are golden and tender. Cool completely.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, place turkey breast on cutting board. At the thinner side of the breast, cut in horizontally -- but not all the way through -- to open it up like a book. Lay the breast open between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound with meat mallet or rolling pin to 1/2-in. (1-cm) thickness.

  • Step 3

    Spread mushroom filling evenly over turkey, leaving a 1-in. (2.5-cm) border. Arrange slices of Brie on top of filling. Tightly roll turkey into a log – with he grain running along its length -- tucking in the edges as you roll to enclose the filling. Secure with butcher’s twine. Coat with remaining butter. Season with remaining salt and pepper.

  • Step 4

    Place turkey roll in small roasting pan fitted with rack. Roast turkey 45 to 50 min. or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Remove turkey from pan. Tent with foil and let rest 15 min.

  • Step 5

    Meanwhile, combine cherries, red wine, honey and shallot in medium saucepan set over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 25 to 30 min. until thick and syrupy. Stir in mustard; cool. Slice turkey and serve with cherry sauce.

Tip

Substitute cherries with pitted plums or blackberries.
