MAKES: 1 turkey breast (3 to 4 servings)


Use organic ingredients where possible.

For the turkey:

  • 1 boneless, skinless turkey breast (212 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or cooking oil of choice)
  • Salt
  • Simply Organic® Black Pepper

For the filling:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 12 fennel bulb, finely chopped
  • 1 medium sweet apple, cored and finely chopped
  • 12 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 slice sourdough bread, torn into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Thyme Leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Ground Sage Leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Rosemary Leaf
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon Simply Organic® Black Pepper
  • 14 cup white wine
  • Butcher's twine


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. Butterfly turkey breast, slicing horizontally but not quite all the way through. The turkey breast should open like a book. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place a piece of parchment paper under breast and on top. Using a rolling pin, flatten out breast. Place 4 to 6 pieces of butcher's twine, evenly spaced, under flattened breast.
  3. In a large skillet, melt butter. Add celery, fennel, apple and onion and sauté about 7 minutes, until mixture begins to sweat and soften. Add bread, thyme, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper, stirring to combine. Add wine and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Allow mixture to cool.
  4. Spread filling evenly over flattened turkey breast and press down. Roll breast up tightly. Tie butcher's twine around turkey roll to secure. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  5. Pour olive oil over turkey, spreading to cover the turkey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for about 45 minutes, until center of turkey reaches 155°. Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest for about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove butcher's twine, slice and serve.

Chef Suggestion

  1. For great sweet flavor, use Honeycrisp or Gala apples.
  2. Other bread may be substituted for the sourdough.
