Herb Stuffed Turkey Breast Wrapped in Prosciutto is a family friendly, easy main course during any season!
I am a huge klutz…cute, but klutzy 🙂 I have the most horrible photo shoot set up. I actually set my tripod in my sink and broke a lens when making this, so forgive the overexposed photo! Oh well- at least this Herb Stuffed Turkey Breast Wrapped in Prosciutto is yummy, right? 🙂
Four very easy steps. Butterfly your turkey breast. I know, that sounds daunting but you can’t screw this up. Here is a little video if you need help. But basically you cut half way down the middle then out to the sides so it opens up like a book. It doesnt have to be pretty for this dish. NOTE: if you buy it in a roll, like Butterball, when you unwrap it, there may be a couple pieces. Do not panic. Simply butterfly the biggest breast to lay flat and tuck the remaining pieces around it so it looks like one large breast. Once you wrap this baby up in prosciutto, no one will be the wiser! Mine was in 3 pieces…can’t tell!
Step 2 – cover with chopped herb and garlic mixure.
Step 3 – Roll up, using your parchment to help you. Just keep tucking and rolling. Right when you think it won’t work…it does!
Step 4 – lay your thinly sliced prosciutto over the top, slightly overlapping. Tucking the ends of the prosciutto under your rolled up turkey breast. Tie with 4-5 pieces of string.
You are done and you are amazing! Now time to go enjoy your Herb Stuffed Turkey Breast Wrapped in Prosciutto!
You can see this doesn’t have to be perfect when it goes into the oven, but it will be perfect when you take it out and slice it….I promise!
