  • 1 ½ cup of port
  • ½ cup of dried cherries
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 8 oz of Roma Italian sausages skinless
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 5 oz of baby spinach leaves
  • ½ cup diced provolone cheese
  • ¼ cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
  • 2 boneless turkey breasts (3 pounds or 1.5 kg each)
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Combine the sugar, cherries and port in a small pot. Boil the water and stir continuously until the sugar is melted. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Then remove the pan from the heat and let it sit. Finally remove the sauce and refrigerate (put the cherries aside).
  2. Cook the sausage meat over medium heat in a large skillet. Cut it into pieces with a wooden spoon for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the water from the sausage meat and put it in a large pot. Melt the butter over medium heat in a skillet. Add the onions, cook the ingredients for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the spinach as you go.
  3. Simmer the spinach, stirring occasionally, until softened. Then put the spinach in a filter and crush it to get rid of the liquid. Roughly slice the spinach mixture and add it to the cherries, sausages, cheese breadcrumbs and parsley. Finally mix all the ingredients.
  4. Wrap a turkey breast in plastic wrap. Using a pan or hammer, flatten it evenly. Then remove the plastic wrap. And do the same with the other turkey breast. Salt and pepper.
  5. On a double-layered plastic wrap, place 6 pieces of roasting twine 8 inches (40 centimetres) long. Lay another 24 inch (61 centimetres) piece of twine perpendicular to the center. Cover the twine with 6 slices of bacon, crossing them lightly.
  6. Then place a turkey breast on the bacon slices, forming a rectangle. Spread half of the trim on the center of the breast and use the plastic wrap to fold it in half.  Then firmly tie the breast and bacon slices with the roasting string to get a roll.Do the same with the other turkey breast.
  7. Place the breasts on the grill of a roasting pan. Heat them to 400०F (200 degrees Celsius) for an hour and a half or so until the breasts have lost their pinkish colour inside and a thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit in the center of the breast. Place the breasts on a platter and cover them with foil. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the twine when ready to serve.
