Turkey Roulade

Enjoy all of the flavours of Christmas with this delicious Turkey Roulade recipe, which can be prepared and pre-portioned in advance. Steaming the turkey in a Miele Steam Oven ensures it remains succulent and juicy. Serve warm with all of the trimmings, and use up any leftovers in a tasty Boxing Day sandwich


Serves 6

  • 500g turkey breast (cut into thick strips)

  • 300g sausage meat

  • 5 sprigs of thyme (stripped)

  • 50g dried cranberries

  • 50g dried apricots (halved)

  • 8 x slices of Prosciutto or Parma ham


  1. Firstly, make the stuffing. Dice the apricots and mix with the sausage meat, cranberries and thyme.

  2. Make a little patty and fry off the sausage on a Miele Hob. Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary.

  3. Cut the turkey into thick strips, ideally 8cm wide and 30cm long.

  4. Overlapping each slice, lay out the Parma ham onto a double lined cling filmed tray. Make a rectangle shape with the ham and then spread the sausage meat evenly across the ham (1cm thick), leaving a 4cm frame of ham all the way around.

  5. Season the turkey strips with salt and ground pepper and place in the centre of the sausage meat. Folding away from you, fold over the cling film to make a sausage roll shape, pinching the ends tight as you go.

  6. Keep rolling into a sausage and tie the cling film ends. Wrap tightly in tin foil to ensure the ends do not burst.

  7. Insert a Miele meat probe into the centre of the ballotine and set a core temperature of 63˚C. Steam at 100˚C in a Miele Steam Oven until the core temperature reaches 63˚C.

  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before refrigerating overnight.

  9. Remove the tin foil and cut into 4cm wide rounds.

  10. To reheat the roulade, leave the cling film on to help hold its shape and dust lightly with flour. Pan fry both sides until golden brown, add some chicken or turkey stock and place in a Miele Oven on the Fan Plus setting for 10-12 minutes.
