Herb Stuffed Turkey Breast Wrapped In Bacon

Course Main Dish
Cuisine Modern Australian
Servings 6


  • 1 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup low salt chicken stock
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground pepper
  • 500 g streaky bacon rashers
  • 1 boneless skinless turkey breast, butterflied


  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Pound the turkey breast to an even thickness.
  • Combine the stuffing ingredients in a bowl. The stuffing should be moist, mounding nicely on a spoon, but should not be sopping wet. Add more broth if needed.
  • Spread the stuffing evenly over the turkey breast.
  • Roll up the breast lengthwise to create a cylinder. Arrange the bacon slices on a work surface in 6 tightly spaced parallel stripes, overlapping the ends of 2 slices to make each stripe.
  • Place the rolled turkey breast in the centre of the bacon and then crisscross the bacon around the turkey. Tie the turkey with butcher’s twine to create a uniform roast and to secure the bacon.
  • Cook in a roasting pan, until the internal temperature reaches 75 degrees C, turning occasionally to ensure the bacon gets crispy on all sides ( around 1 to 1.5 hours). Let rest for 10 minutes, remove the string, slice and serve.
