Turkey and Trimming Pinwheels

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • ⅔ cup finely diced celery
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 to 6 tbsp chicken stock
  • ⅓ cup coarsely chopped dried cranberries
  • 1 pound turkey scallopini (about 4 portions)
  • 4 to 6 rosemary stems, cut into 2-inch lengths

In a large sauté pan, heat oil for 1 minute, then add onion and celery and cook, stirring often, until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

Stir in sage, thyme, salt and pepper and cook 1 minute more. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Stir in breadcrumbs, 4 tbsp chicken stock and cranberries to combine. Mixture should hold together when squeezed – add more chicken stock to moisten, if needed.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Lay out a sheet of aluminum foil just slightly larger than a portion of turkey scallopini. Lay a sheet of parchment paper over foil.

Place a portion of turkey scallopini on parchment and spread or press a thin layer of breadcrumb mixture over scallopini.

Roll up scallopini and wrap with parchment/foil layer, twisting ends to secure. Place on a baking tray and repeat with remaining scallopini portions.

Bake scallopini for 25 minutes, until an internal temperature of 180 F is reached. Cool scallopinis to room temperature, then chill until ready to serve.

To serve, unwrap scallopinis and slice on the bias into ½-inch slices. Remove half of leaves from each 2-inch rosemary stem and insert into slice of turkey.

Pinwheels can be served cold or warmed for 8 minutes in a 350 F oven. Delicious served with a maple, honey or cranberry mustard.
