Apple Stuffed Turkey Breast Roast

"I heard of this recipe on the radio one morning (CBC radio one: Edmonton am) and found it on their website and the website said that the recipe is from Alberta Turkey Producers. I haven't tried it yet but I will soon!! EDIT: I did try it and it was fantastic!! I'm glad that I kept this recipe on here so I can keep it somewhere safe! It's fantastic for Thanksgiving for two people...that's what I made it for."

  1. I didn't see the need to pound the meat at all as the pocket was perfect size to be stuffed. The apple flavor of the stuffing was very subdued. next time I make this I think I'll try laying some apple rings on top of the stuffed breasts to enhance the apple flavor. The drippings made a good gravy base. there were no left overs.
