Turkey cutlets with Savory Stuffing, roll them up for a great dinner or perfect snack. They are juicy and flavorful. The selenium in turkey can increase your resistance to infection. The red wine (I use a Pinot Noir) adds a bit of resveratrol to the selenium’s antioxidant power. —Grace O

Stuffed Turkey Rolls - To make the marinade, combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, red wine, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag.

Stuffed Turkey Rolls - Remove cutlets, reserving the marinade. Pat each cutlet dry with paper towels.
Stuffed Turkey Rolls - On a work surface, lay one cutlet so it slightly overlaps a second one. Pound the seam together with a mallet. You should have one fairly large, thin turkey round. Repeat with the remaining cutlets until you have 3 rounds
Stuffed Turkey Rolls - Spread about 1/2 cup of Savory Stuffing evenly onto each turkey round, smoothing almost to the edge. Roll up the turkey, pinwheel style, and secure with kitchen twine.
Stuffed Turkey Rolls - Heat the butter and olive oil in a heavy bottomed sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the turkey rolls and sear until a golden crust develops, about 1–2 minutes per side
Stuffed Turkey Rolls - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place turkey rolls in a glass or ceramic baking dish. Spoon the reserved marinade and any remaining stuffing around the rolls. Cover with foil and bake until the turkey is cooked through, about 20–30 minutes.
Stuffed Turkey Rolls - Before serving, remove the twine and cut each turkey roll into 5 slices.
Savory Stuffing - Heat 3 Tbs. of the olive oil in a large pan over medium high-heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
Savory Stuffing - Add the ground turkey and cook until done. Set aside.
Savory Stuffing - To make the croutons, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season the bread cubes with the salt and pepper, drizzle with the remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil and the Italian seasoning, bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
