  • 2 turkey tenderloins
  • 4 cremini or baby bella mushrooms stems removed and diced
  • ¼ cup walnut halves
  • 1 cup parsley loosely packed
  • ¼ cup fresh oregano stems removed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Make the filling

  • In a small pan, melt the butter. Once melted, add the diced mushrooms to the pan, stirring to coat in the butter. Saute for about 5 minutes, until the edges of the mushrooms are slightly browned.
  • While the mushrooms are cooking, add the walnuts and herbs to a food processor and pulse 4-5 times, until everything is finely chopped.
  • Remove the mushrooms from the heat and combine them in a bowl with the walnuts and herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare the turkey

  • Using a sharp knife, slice each turkey breast tenderloin horizontally, without slicing all of the way through.
  • Open each tenderloin like a book, then cover them with plastic wrap. With a heavy-bottomed pan or mallet, pound each piece until they are uniformly ¼ inch thick.
  • Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Assemble the roulade

  • Evenly spread the filling over each prepared turkey breast, leaving about 1” of space at the top.
  • Starting at the edge closest to you, tightly roll the turkey breast away from you. Repeat with the other prepared tenderloin.
  • Tie each roulade with 2-3 pieces of kitchen twine crosswise to hold it together. Tuck the edges in, then use one piece of twine to tie it lengthwise.

Roast the roulade

  • Place the prepared roulades into an oven safe baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil.
  • Roast in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or the roulades reach an internal temperature of 165 in the thickest part.
  • Remove from the oven, and allow them to rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
