1-1/4 Cups red bell pepper, brunoise
1-1/4 Cups yellow bell pepper, brunoise
3 Cups button mushrooms, medium chop

1 Cup scallions, green section only, medium chop
1/2 Cup TURKEY BACON, cooked and finely chopped

  1. Melt butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add celery, carrot, red onion, red and yellow bell peppers. Sweat this mixture until vegetables just start to soften but still retain their fresh color.

Turkey Breast
8 Pounds WHOLE TURKEY BREAST, halved and trimmed clean
To Taste salt and pepper

  1. Remove the bone, then butterfly the breast. Place on a clean surface and pound to an even thickness.
  2. Lightly salt and pepper. Spread half the stuffing mixture over each turkey breast section, ½-inch thick. Spread to within 1-inch of the sides and bottom and 3-inches from the top.
  3. With slight pressure, tightly roll the roulade. Tie the roulade with butcher’s twine, starting at the center and working out.
  4. Repeat with the second breast half.
  5. Grill or pan sear the roulades and finish in a 350-degree F oven until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F. Hold, warm for service.


  1. Cut the roulades into ½-inch slices.
  2. Nap each warm dinner plate with Chipotle Apple Cider Sauce. Fan 3 roulade slices (about 6-ounces) across each dinner plate.
  3. Garnish with additional chopped vegetables.
