  • Slice turkey breast down the middle and lay it flat. Sprinkle oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper on the inside of turkey. Arrange spinach leaves in 1 layer on 1 of the pieces of turkey and top with a layer of feta cheese. Repeat layering with spinach and feta cheese. Fold the other turkey breast half over the feta layer so the filling is sealed. Wrap the entire turkey breast with bacon. Place wrapped turkey in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper.

  • Cook turkey breast until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Turn on oven's broiler and broil wrapped turkey until bacon is crisp on each side, about 2 minutes per side. Let turkey rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Tips

Please note differences in ingredient amounts and cooking time when following the magazine version of this recipe.

Cook's Note:

Depending on the size of your turkey breast, you may need to cook it a little longer…just check the temperature. It is done when the thermometer reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Try not to let it get past 165 though…I took it out at 170 degrees F (77 degrees C) once and let it rest and it was a little dry so just make sure to check it.

I made this as published with the exception of Turkey. I used chicken breast and it was fantastic. Not sure if it was the bacon or the feta but it had a very smokey flavor that my wife and I both loved. I paired it with mashed potatoes and glazed carrots and when plated it made for a very nice looking dish. This is a dish I will make again and plan to make it for our next dinner party. Read More

This was excellent! I butterflied large turkey breast cutlets and did it that way and these were to die for. Getting the bacon to stay on could be a challenge so I recommend using toothpicks to help you along. I already cannot wait to make this one again! Read More

Turned out amazing! I hate to just make a turkey for thanksgiving as there are only 2 of us this was a great alternative. Turned out great even with out the seasoning because of the yummy bacon. I've already been requested to make it again. Things get a little messy while wrapping the bacon around but it's totally worth it. Read More

Everyone loved it although for the dark meat lovers I added the added the thighs. Instead of stuffing the breast I pounded them anfd the Thighs out and created two rolls. It came out great. Read More

Bacon definitely kept turkey breast moist. For me the filling was too bland. Next time with the spinach I am going to use lots of garlic maybe sauteed crimini mushroom and some kind of cheese with a bit more oomph. Read More

This was a total hit! I cooked it at 400c - 40min /kg. I roasted it covered with tin foil until last 20 min so the bacon would get nice and crispy. I will definitely make it again. Read More

Delicious! I added about 2 tablespoons of dried tomato to the spinach-feta stuffing to add some brightness and texture. Next time I may add a balsamic vinegar reduction drizzle on top. Read More
