The staple protein featured in most of our meals is chicken. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that, but why not try a slight twist? Instead of chicken breast, use turkey meat and stuff it liberally with flavorful ingredients.

Consider a combination of aromatic marinade based on spices, bacon, and yellow cheese. Trust me, such a trio will significantly enhance the flavor of the turkey. Moreover, go for a lighter and more nuanced approach instead of frying the meat. Bake the turkey and its delicious stuffing in the oven - you won't regret it. It promises to be a true feast for every taste bud.

Delight your household with this interesting spin on a light dinner - the pleasure is all in the preparation

Ingredients:

  • 1.32 lb. turkey breast,
  • ⅓ cup of olive oil,
  • 1 tablespoon of dried oregano,
  • 1 tablespoon of dried thyme,
  • 1 tablespoon of dried marjoram,
  • 1 teaspoon of salt,
  • ⅓ teaspoon of pepper,
  • 10 slices of yellow cheese,
  • 10 slices of bacon.

Preparation:

Step 1. Prepare by cleaning, drying, and laying the turkey breast on a cutting board. Make a few horizontal incisions along its entire length, creating the effect of mini pockets for stuffing.

Step 2. Next, take a slice of yellow cheese, place a slice of bacon directly on top, fold it in half, and insert the assembled package into the pockets you made earlier.

Step 3. The recipe isn't complete without a marinade. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, oregano, marjoram, thyme, garlic (peeled and crushed through a press), salt, and pepper.

Mix thoroughly to blend well and achieve a perfect melding of flavors.
