sketch of Bob above the Stuffed mushroom Turkey Rolls recipe.

The neighbors loved this east to make turkey roll up recipe that Elizabeth shared with us. It has a nice mushroom-spinach stuffing and uses turkey breast for the roll-ups. You can make a simple turkey dinner and even use the turkey leftovers from the holiday dinner.


2 T. butter
2 red onions, medium size, chopped
2 c. sliced mushrooms
2 carrots, shredded
1 box (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed dry
2 T. chopped parsley
1 T. grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 t. dried basil
1 slice, white bread, finely chopped
1 c. low-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 t. grated lemon zest
12 turkey breasts

Preheat the oven 325°. In a skillet, melt the butter and sauté onion, mushrooms and carrots til tender. Add spinach, parsley, cheese and basil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in bread, 2 T. broth and lemon zest. Spray a (9x13 inch) baking dish. Place the turkey breasts between 2 pieces of plastic and pound out to equal thickness. Spread the mushroom stuffing mixture over the top of the breasts, roll up and tie. Place the turkey roll up's seam-side-down in the baking dish dish, pour remaining chicken both over, cover with foil, and bake the roll up's for 1 1/2 hours basting frequently to keep the turkey moist. Cool for 10 minutes and remove the string before serving.
