The thing that scares me the most about hosting Thanksgiving is preparing the turkey. I was confident that as I went about my internet search for rookie friendly turkey recipes, I would find plenty.
I am confident that I can prepare everything else for Thanksgiving just beautifully. Especially since I've been practising. I just have is in my head that if I screw up the turkey, then I've ruined Thanksgiving. My goal was to find and post a recipe that did not intimidate me.
I found this website called primalplate.com which had this fantastic stuffed turkey breast recipe that I want to share with you here.

Stuffed Turkey Breast
- 1 cup onions, chopped
- 2 cup baby spinach, chopped and stems removed
- 2 cup white mushrooms, chopped
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil.
- 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 lb Turkey Breast, boneless, skin-on
- 1 tsp salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to roast at 375°F.
- In a non stick skillet, sauté mushrooms, baby spinach, onion, garlic, and rosemary in 1 tablespoon olive until mushrooms have softened slightly.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Remove from heat and set aside.
- Carefully remove skin from turkey and set aside.
- Place turkey breast, skin side down on a large cutting board.
- Spread halves of breast apart, so the turkey breast opens like a book.
- Release thickest tenders of meat with a sharp knife so that you can open the breast more to create an even thickness of meat.
- Cover turkey breast with parchment paper and carefully pound to even thickness with a meat mallet (or cast-iron skillet like we had to resort to using).
- You want the meat to be as even as possible without damaging the breast.
- Spread stuffing over turkey and tightly roll the breast for roasting.
- Cover the stuffed breast with the reserved skin, and tie with kitchen twine in three evenly spaced intervals to keep skin in place.
- Lay stuffed breast in a roasting pan or baking dish, seam side down.
- Roast at 375°F for about 2 hours and 30 minutes, or until the roast has reached 175°F in the breast.
It helps to have an extra pair of hands to help with this dish. We recommend having a pair of hands to roll the turkey, and a helper to tie it up for cooking. The finished product is well worth the work!
