Herbed Turkey Roast
5 lbs turkey breasts, boned
1/4 c parsley, chopped
2 Tbsps fresh thyme, minced
2 oz Fontina cheese, sliced
2 oz prosciutto
4 sprigs parsley or thyme
2/3 c chicken broth
1/3 c dry white wine
2 tbsps cornstarch
2 tbsps cold water
Rinse turkey, pat dry and place, skin down, on cutting board.
Sprinkle meat side with chopped parsley and thyme, season with salt
and pepper. Cover with cheese and prosciutto, overlapping slices.
Starting with a long edge, roll up turkey, firmly, jelly roll style.
Overlap 3-4 sprigs parsley or thyme down length of roll, tie roll
securely with string at 2" intervals. (at this point you may cover
and refrigerate until next day)
Place turkey, thyme side up, in slow cooker. Pour in broth and
wine. Cover and cook until meat in thickest part is very tender
when pierced (9-10 hrs).
Carefully lift turkey to a warm platter and keep warm. Skim and
discard fat from cooking liquid, blend in cornstarch (blended with
water). Increase cooker to HIGH, cover and cook, stirring 2 or 3
times, until sauce is thickened.
Remove and discard strings and thyme sprigs from turkey, slice meat
1/4" thick. Garnish with additional thyme sprigs, if desired.
Serve with sauce.
