Turkey Roulade

Flatten turkey cutlets between sheets of parchment paper to a thickness of 1/8-inch.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Spread 1-tablespoon Dijon mustard atop each cutlet. Layer cooked bacon and onion atop cutlets.

Roll cutlets, jelly roll-style from narrow end, and secure with butcher's string.

In skillet, heat oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and brown roulades.

Arrange roulades in one layer on full sized sheet pan.

Deglaze skillet with additional 1 cup wine over moderate heat, scraping up any brown bits; add to sheet pan.

Cover pan tightly with foil and braise roulades in 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes, or until just cooked through.

Transfer roulades with tongs to a cutting board and carefully remove butcher's string.


To serve, slice each turkey roll, on the diagonal, into thirds.

Spoon 1/4-cup sauce on each dinner plate and shingle turkey slices atop sauce.
