Turkey Lurkey

Hi there!
I've gotten home after 8PM every single night this week! Except tonight, which is why I cooked a "real" dinner. Stuffed turkey breast, carrots and an herb pasta. That's not the half of it though, all the herbs came from our garden! Yay! Here's how to stuff a turkey breast real good:

1 big delicious turkey breast
1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1 egg
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

First you need to butterfly your turkey breast (slice it down the middle but don't cut all the way through). Take your handy dandy meat mallet/meat tenderizer/hammer/something with which to smash and pound the turkey to about 3/4 of an inch thick. Be careful not to punish your meat TOO much, you still need it to hold stuffing! In another bowl combine your herbs, salt, pepper, breadcrumbs, egg and a little olive oil. Season your turkey breast, I use a little olive oil, salt and pepper (on both sides). Spread your stuffing on the meat, not quite to the edge, and roll the turkey up! Use some kitchen twine to keep your meat masterpiece from going to pieces. Cook for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Eat it up yum yum!

PS- Tomorrow is Joe's Birthday! He's gonna be 25 years old! Yay Happy Husband Birthday !!!
