  • 500 ml store-bought tomato sauce, such as marinara
  • 1 Flamingo turkey breast, around 900 g to 1 kg
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 onion (small), finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 175 g spinach, washed and dried
  • 1 Flamingo turkey breast, around 900 g to 1 kg
  • ½ 450 g package Amoré mild Italian sausages (3)
  • 175 g spinach, washed and dried
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. fresh chopped basil, or dried
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 500 ml Marinara sauce or other sauce of your choice

instructions

  1. In a frying pan on high heat, sauté the onion for 2 minutes in 1 tbsp. oil, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add spinach and sauté while stirring to wilt and dry the spinach. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Add the beaten egg, mix well and season with salt and pepper. Keep cool.
  2. Remove skins from sausages and transfer meat to a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F (195°C).
  4. Cut trought the side of the turkey breast without cutting through the breast completely and then open it up like a book. Set aside.
  5. Spread a large sheet of aluminum foil on a work surface. Brush the centre with 1 tbsp. olive oil and sprinkle with basil, oregano, salt and pepper.
  6. Place the turkey breast on the herbs. Spread the sausage meat over the turkey breast halves taking care to leave 2 cm clear all around. Place spinach in centre and close breast halves together. Roll with the foil to form a bundle (like a candy), wrapping another sheet of foil around if desired.
  7. Bake around 1 hour 30 minutes turning halfway through cooking. Bake until internal temperature reads 175°F (80°C). Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Remove aluminum foil. Cut into slices and serve on a bed of hot Marinara sauce.

Suggestion

For cooking on a BBQ, light one side of BBQ and turn to high, follow steps 1 to 6 and place stuffed breast on unlit side. Cook with indirect heat about 1 hour 30 minutes turning periodically. Bake until internal temperature reads 175°F (80°C). After, proceed as with oven cooking.
