Put the turkey steaks on a chopping mat, cover with cling film and flatten (bashing) with a rolling pin until about 1cm thick, season with salt and pepper.
Divide and spread out the stuffing mixture between the 2 steaks and roll them up lengthways.
Then stretch the bacon by dragging the blade of a knife sideways across it at about a 10° angle.
Wrap each rolled up turkey steak in 2 rashers of bacon.
Stab the top of each parcel with a thin sharp knife 5 times evenly spaced across the top, then insert a piece of rosemary into each hole.
Place in a roasting tin with a drizzle of olive oil over the top and roast in the centre of your oven for 35 minutes or until cooked.
Allow to rest for 10 minutes covered in foil.
Remove the rosemary sprigs, slice the turkey parcels up into neat slices and serve with vegetables and gravy.
This dish can be put together in the morning, wrapped in cling film and roasted later the same day.
