Wild Mushroom Stuffed Turkey Breast with Cranberry Sauce


Wild Mushroom Stuffed Turkey Breast with Cranberry Sauce

The leek and wild mushroom stuffing for this roast turkey is full of flavor but not fat. You can also use regular white mushrooms but the flavor will not be as rich!


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 leek, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 rib celery, diced
  • 2 cups sliced wild cultivated mushrooms (chanterelles, porcinis, creminis, etc)
  • 2 teaspoons herbs de Provence
  • 2 tablespoons shallots, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups toasted bread crumbs
  • 1/2 boneless turkey breast, about 2 1/2 pounds
  • cranberry sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan, add butter, and add the leeks and celery.
  3. Sauté for 3 minutes and add the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes and add the herbs and shallots, cooking for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper, and pour over the bread crumbs in a mixing bowl. Mix well and cool.
  5. Butterfly the turkey breast open with a sharp boning knife. Using a meat mallet (we'll use our hands, thank you very much), pound the meat to expand it and make it of an even thickness.
  6. Spoon the stuffing lengthwise across the breast and roll up, tucking in the meat at each end.
  7. Tie the roulade with butchers' twine.
  8. Season with salt and pepper, and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until a thermometer reads 150 degrees F in the center.
  9. Remove and allow to rest for 10 minutes before removing the twine and slicing.
  10. Serve with cranberry sauce.
