I have a confession to make. I’m not a huge fan of turkey. With almost 10 years of blogging, this is the first turkey recipe on my blog. No traditional Thanksgiving turkey recipes here – not just because I’m not a huge fan but also because we tend to crash a friend’s house for the holiday. Much less work for me that way. 😉


Today’s recipe is much more my speed. If I could choose, I’d skip the big Thanksgiving dinner and go for something like the dish I am sharing with you today. Boneless, skinless turkey breast stuffed with deliciousness. This dish is wonderful for a small Thanksgiving meal or for a cozy fall Sunday night dinner at home. It takes a little time to prep, but then it gets thrown in the oven to bake, leaving you with almost an hour to watch Sunday football (if you’re into that sort of thing), play with the kiddos, or perhaps indulge in a pre-dinner glass of wine.

This turkey breast is stuffed with fall flavors – apples, rosemary, sausage and cornbread. It’s surprisingly sweet… the stuffing actually tastes a little bit like candy. My husband pretty quickly declared that this recipe needed to be added into the regular dinner rotation.

I think the sweet Envy apples really make this dish – so I’m incredibly lucky they sponsored this post, as well as #AppleWeek. For those that don’t know, Envy apples are grown in New Zealand (as well as in Washington state) and are a cross between a Braeburn and Royal Gala apple. They’re absolutely delicious. (I had to put my box of apples on lock-down, to prevent my husband and daughter devouring them before I had a chance to get cooking!).

Tips:

  • Whether you bought rosemary just for this recipe or picked it fresh from your garden, remember that fresh rosemary can be minced and frozen to use later. Mince, spread in a single layer on a baking sheet, and freeze for at least 1 hour. Once frozen, transfer to an airtight container for long-term storage. I use this freshly frozen rosemary in place of fresh rosemary all of the time, to reduce waste and get the most out of my summer crop.
  • I found my boneless, skinless turkey breast at Wegman’s grocery store – in case you have trouble finding it outside of Thanksgiving. I don’t think I’ve seen it sold anywhere else.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium apple (I used Envy) finely chopped
  • 1 rib of celery finely chopped

  • 5 oz. mild Italian sausage casings removed (1-2 links)
  • 1 c. crumbled cornbread
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbs. pure maple syrup
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lbs. boneless skinless turkey breast

Instructions

  1. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp. olive oil over medium heat. Saute chopped apple, celery, onion, and a large pinch of kosher salt until translucent, about 10 minutes. Add sausage (casings removed) and rosemary. Continue to cook until sausage is browned, breaking it up into little pieces as it cooks. 

  2. Remove apple-sausage mixture from heat. Transfer to a large bowl and mix with cornbread, parsley and maple syrup. Set aside to cool.

  3. While the stuffing is cooling, butterfly turkey breast and flatten to 1/2-inch thickness by placing the butterflied breast between two slices of plastic wrap and pounding with a meat mallet (or if you're like me and don't own one, a rolling pin).

  4. When stuffing has cooled enough to handle, spread on top of turkey breast, leaving a 1/2-inch area around the edges. Start at the
