Preparing the Turkey
Before filling the turkey breast with my amazing stuffing, the meat needs to be prepped. For this, you’ll need either a meat mallet (best option) or a rolling pin. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of the turkey breast; the pocket needs to be deep enough to lay the breast flat. Cover the meat with plastic wrap, then tenderize and flat the meat until it’s about 1/8th inch thick. Just make sure you don’t go through the meat, otherwise it will be hard to fill! You want a nice, large flat area where you can add the stuffing.
The Aromatic Stuffing
The stuffing makes this stuffed turkey breast so delicious and flavorful. I prepare an aromatic combination of smoky bacon, mushrooms, garlic, shallots and even added a bit of Parmesan cheese to the mix! I love the smoky flavor from the bacon and I also add a touch of smoked paprika. The result: moist and super juicy turkey with a smoky and tasty filling! If you want even more bacon flavor, try wrapping the stuffed turkey breast with more bacon! Trust me, you’ll love it!
