    Bay Laurel's Note:

    I don't know if a recipe like this exists anywhere but it was an idea I came up with thinking of a way to maximize the flavor of a young turkey breast.I decided that pepperoni inserted into a turkey would be fabulous...and it was. It turned out to be the inspiration to my Italian themed dinner party and was a huge hit. I will make this again.

      This picture does not do the Turkey justice - it was delicious.
