Soloed this Thanksgiving, so this was perfect. Did it with what I had on hand, chicken sausage with spinach and port (turken!). It was delicious with plenty of leftovers. Using the onions/port fond mixture to make some French onion soup!

Just broke down a turkey and boned/flattened the breast -- a whole turkey costs less than just the breast! I"m about to chop freshly picked rosemary and prepare the sausage. Really looking forward to this!! ;o)

I have made something similar to this. I buy a fresh whole turkey breast and bone it out. I butterfly the breast out and pound it out. I take a good quality Italian sausage and add blanched and dried spinach and pine nuts. I roll and tie it up keeping the skin on so it doesn't dry out. I roast off the breast bones, and make a stock to make a Marsala gravy to serve with the roulade.

Thank you, inpatskitchen, for testing the recipe. I am so glad that you like it. Thank you to everyone else for the kind words. My husband is a notorious turkey hater, but he loves this recipe. I love how it has most of the elements of turkey and stuffing, deconstructed and still so delicious. AJ, let me know who your dinner fairs.

Love this recipe! I have another Tuscan rolled turkey recipe from a little cookbook that the cook at Georgetown University's program in Fiesole put together--it's stuffed with a thin omelet and vegetables. I'd love to serve both yours and theirs at one big party.

I love the sound of this recipe. Last year I tried a recipe the week before Thanksgiving and my poor husband was so sick of turkey he begged for fish(we were on Maui then).

This sounds absolutely delicious. I'm seriously considering skipping the whole bird altogether this year (as we won't have a large crowd) and serving this instead. Seriously! ;o)

I did that last year. I had a couple of turkey haters, so it was me, FIL, and husband. This makes a great sandwich when thinly sliced.
