Rolled Turkey and Stuffing
My dad used to make this and we all loved it. DH and I are going to be on our own for Christmas and I thought this would make for a good Christmas dinner. I decided to try it out for Sunday dinner.
I found a 4 1/2 lb. bone-in turkey breast. After thawing it all night I woke up and boned it. I've never boned poultry before, I just tried to stick as close to the bone as possible. It was quite fun, I felt like I was back in the Operating Room.
Anyway, after I boned the turkey I laid it out flat. I made 2 batches of Stove Top stuffing and cooked up some loose sausage and mixed the two together.
I spread out the stuffing/sausage on the turkey and then rolled it up, securing it with thread.
I baked it in a roasting pan and served it with mashed potatoes and pan gravy.
It definitely doesn't need 2 batches of stuffing, but DH LOVES stuffing and only likes turkey.
