Turkey Roll with Spinach Stuffing
1.6-pound turkey breast boned, halved and skinned (reserve skin)
1 teaspoon salt ¼ cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups water, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper
1. Prepare for stuff. Place each half-breast, cut side up, onboard. Starting at long side, cut horizontally in half, but not all the way through; open out meat like a butterfly
2. Spread meat open. With meat mallet or dull edge of French knife, pound until about 10′ by 9′ and ¼ inch thick.
3. Sprinkle with half of the salt then cover with half of the stuffing. Starting at the narrow end, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Place one piece of skin on top of the roll.
4. Tie the roll with string. Repeat steps 2-4 with remaining half breast.
5. Place rolls, skin side up, on the rack in roasting pan. Brush with butter. Insert meat thermometer in the center of one roll.
6. Roast at 325’F. Until thermometer reads 185′ F., about 1 ¾ hour; remove the strings.
7. Make the gravy: Pour drippings into 4 cup measure; let stand until fat separates. Pour 2 tablespoons fat into 1-quart saucepan; skim off and discard remaining fat. Add water to roasting pan; stip to loosen brown bits; add to meat juice in the cup. Into fat in a saucepan, over medium heat, stir flour, salt, pepper, and meat-juice; cook, stirring until the gravy is thick.
NB: You need the best air fryer oven to make that recipe.
