4 slices
Provolone cheese
8 rashers (slices)


How to Cook Turkey, Cheese and Bacon Roulades

  1. Peel and crush (mince) the garlic and finely chop the fresh basil (you want to end up with about 1 tablespoon of chopped basil). If you can't get turkey cutlets, buy turkey breast - about 1lb (450g) for 4 people - cut open and pound to an even ¼" (6mm) thickness. Place each cutlet on a piece of aluminium foil about 5" x 6" (12.5cm x 15cm). Sprinkle each cutlet with salt, pepper, garlic, and basil.
  2. Turkey, Cheese and Bacon Roulades PreparationLayer a slice of thin cooked ham, then a slice of Provolone cheese (if you have difficulty getting Provolone cheese, any full-fat, semi-hard cows milk cheese - like Stilton, Fontina, Gouda, Havarti - will work) and then a further slice of ham on to each cutlet. Starting with the narrowest point, roll the cutlets tightly and wrap 2 slices of bacon around each. Fold the aluminium foil around the turkey roll and wrap it tightly so it can't open or spread.
  3. Cook in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 5 - 375ºF - 190ºC) for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully open up the aluminium foil wrappings to expose the bacon. Increase the oven temp to Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until the bacon is lightly browned. Serve immediately with wild rice, or pan-fried vegetables.

Watch your fingers when you opn the aluminium foil to expose the bacon. It WILL be hot!
GRAHAM'S WINE RECOMMENDATION: GrahamA nice, crisp, dry white wine like Chablis or Sancerre sets this meal off beautifully.
