Yield: 9 x approx. 4 oz servings

Preparation Time: 40 mins
Cooking Time: 2 hrs 30 mins


    3 cup cubed sourdough bread
    2 oz macadamia nuts, chopped
    2 small green apples, peeled and diced
    1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
    2 tsp rosemary leaves
    1/2 medium red onion, diced
    1 Tbsp oil
    1 Tbsp sugar substitute
    2 tsp currants
    1 egg
    1 cup non-fat milk
    1 large skinless turkey breast (approx. 3 lb)


    STUFFING: Combine bread, nuts, apples, herbs, onion, and oil. Spread mixture on a lined baking tray and bake at 375°F for 15 minutes.

    Return mixture to bowl, stir through sugar substitute, currants, egg, and milk. Mix well.

    TURKEY: Butterfly then flatten the turkey breast with a meat mallet or rolling pin. Open out fillet and spoon stuffing along the center, leaving 2 inches free on each side to fold over stuffing. Place remaining stuffing in a lightly-oiled baking dish, cover and set aside.

    Bring the edges of the turkey breast around to encase the stuffing and tie with string. Wrap tightly in a few layers of plastic wrap, tying ends to seal, then in foil.

    Fill two-thirds of a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the turkey, cover and simmer for 40 minutes. Remove from liquid, press gently to release juices and refrigerate until ready to bake.

    Remove foil and plastic from turkey and place on a rack in a baking dish with 3/4 inch of water in the base. Cover loosely with foil and bake at 375°F for one hour.

    When turkey is cooked, the juices should run clear. Place the remaining stuffing in the oven for the final 30 to 40 minutes of turkey cooking time. Allow the turkey to sit for 10 minutes, then slice and serve.
