Stuffed Turkey Breast Steaks in Blankets

At this time of year it’s expected that most of us will have a turkey dinner at Christmas. Not everyone though needs or can consume an entire turkey in their household, some people have vegetarians in their family and others just need to cater for one or two.  With this in mind, I decided to make a turkey dinner that would be easy to make and prep in advance for as many or few people as you want and it was also an opportunity to try out the new Knorr Chicken Gravy Pots.

For tips and Marco Pierre White’s Christmas Roast Turkey with Orange and Smokey Bacon Baste head over to www.knorr.co.uk or you might like to watch his recipe video.

The Knorr Chicken Gravy Pots were simple to use as you just put warm water in a saucepan and add the gravy pot and slowly whisk and bring to the boil for one minute. For extra nutrients I used the hot water from my vegetables with some added cold water and you can also add the juices from your roast for extra flavour. I must say my husband and I were both impressed with the flavour of the gravy and I hadn’t added any juices from the pan so it must be good! So if you want the taste of homemade gravy without the hassle then I think these gravy pots are a winner.

As this dish contain parsley and rosemary I am entering it into Karen at Lavender and Lovage’s Herbs on Saturday challenge.

 

First you mix your parsley and orange zest into your stuffing.

Then you bash the turkey steaks with a rolling pin to flatten.

Spread the stuffing over the turkey steaks.

Roll the steaks up.

Stretch the bacon using a knife.

Wrap the turkey parcels in the bacon.

Stab little holes in the parcels and insert sprigs of rosemary and roast.

Once cooked rest for 10 minutes.

Make the gravy just before carving turkey into slices.

Et voila, easy peasy turkey dinner!

    Sometimes a whole turkey can be to much so this is good as you can just get some breasts and have no waste

    Hi Camilla. I’m hoping you can help because my oven has broken and I’m panicing right before Christmas! Could this recipe be adapted to pan fry the turkey steaks rather than put them in a roasting tin in the oven? If so, how long would I need to pan fry them for? Thanks!

    1. Camilla

      Hi I’ve never pan fried this but if you did want to I think a meat thermometer would be your best bet to check that it was cooked through.

    1. Camilla

    Going Christmas shopping today which made me remember this recipe. Not everyone in my famiily likes Turkey, but my hubby loves it, I think I need to bookmark this.

  13. Heather Haigh

    Wow, that has made me hungry. :)

    A VERY clever way to serve turkey in an imaginative way Camilla! THANKS for linking up……Karen xxx

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Karen. Another year I think I will do this as only 3 of us had turkey on Christmas Day. On the plus side we had lots of leftovers to freeze and use another day:-)

    Camilla – what a delicious way to enjoy Turkey over Christmas. I like the stuffing you have used in the bird – I’m sure it adds lots of moisture and prevents it from drying out (which is often the case I find with turkey).
    A beautifully presented Christmas dish :-)

    1. Camilla

      Ah, thank you Jacqueline!
