- Prep Time 30 minutes
- Total Time 1 hour 45 minutes
- Yield Serves 10
- 1 boneless, skinless turkey breast half (about 3 pounds)
- Emeril's Wild-Mushroom Stuffing (http://www.marthastewart.com/284212/emerils-wild-mushroom-stuffing)
- 12 slices bacon
- Thyme sprigs, for garnish (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place turkey, skinned side up, on a work surface. Hold a sharp knife parallel to the cutting surface, and starting on the thicker side, cut the turkey almost completely in half without cutting all the way through; open like a book. With a meat mallet or small heavy skillet, pound turkey to a 1/2-inch thickness.
- Spread stuffing on turkey breast, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around. Starting at a long end, roll turkey over stuffing; pat and tuck turkey to form a uniform log.
- Place turkey roulade, seam side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. Lay bacon crosswise over turkey, overlapping slices slightly. Using kitchen shears, trim ends of bacon so slices extend 1/2 inch beyond roulade on each side; tuck ends under. Roast, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 165 degrees, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let rest 15 minutes; slice and serve, garnished with thyme, if desired.
