Prosciutto-Wrapped Turkey Roulade

From Susannah Chen

Prosciutto-Wrapped Turkey Roulade


  1. 4 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, finely diced
    1 tablespoon chopped sweet onion
    4 ounces thinly-sliced prosciutto
    1/2 a boneless, skin-on turkey breast (about 1-1/2 pounds)
    1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    4 ounces artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the artichokes, shiitake mushrooms, and onion; set aside. With skin side down, cut a lengthwise slit through the thickest portion of turkey to within 1/2 inch of bottom. Open turkey breast so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap or wax paper, then pound to 3/4-inch thickness.
  3. Remove and discard plastic; brush unsalted butter across turkey, then sprinkle evenly with dried thyme.
  4. Spoon vegetable mixture evenly across buttered turkey breast, leaving a half-inch border uncovered on all sides. (Don't mound the vegetable mixture, or the turkey will be difficult to roll.)
  5. Beginning at one end, roll the turkey like a jelly roll and tuck in any filling that tries to escape from the sides.
  6. Carefully wrap prosciutto slices around the turkey roll, overlapping if necessary to cover the entire outer skin of the turkey. Tie the roast firmly with kitchen twine every 2 inches.
  7. Place the roast on a foil-covered sheet pan. Bake, uncovered, until a meat thermometer reads 170ºF when inserted, about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. Cover and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  8. Makes 8 1-1/2" thick slices (about 4 servings).
