8 servings / 2 hours

Prep 30  min / Cook 1 hour 30 minutes

Ingredients
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup (250 mL) apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 tbsp (7 mL) curry powder
  • 1 slice of bread, cut into cubes
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 boneless turkey breast, about 2 lb (1 kg)
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) lower fat Canadian Gouda, diced or 1 cup (250 mL) regular Canadian Gouda, diced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vegetable oil

Cranberry sauce:

  • 2 tsp (10 mL) vegetable oil
  • 2 cups (500 mL) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 1/2 tbsp (37 mL) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) red wine
  • 1 cup (250 mL) reduced-sodium chicken or beef broth
  • Freshly ground pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat and cook onion, garlic and diced apple for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add curry powder and bread cubes, and season. Mix well and let cool.
  3. Cut turkey breast in half through its thickness (without cutting through all the way, so as to be able to open it up like a book).
  4. Add Gouda to cooled apple and curry mixture.
  5. Spread bottom half of turkey breast with mixture, then close up the two halves and hold in place with toothpicks. Place in an oven-safe dish, brush top with oil, season and bake in oven for 15–20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C) and cook for 1 more hour.
  6. In a saucepan, heat oil and cook cranberries for 5 minutes. Add sugar and cook another 2 minutes, then deglaze with red wine and reduce by half. Add broth and leave cranberries on heat 7–10 minutes until cooked and the broth thickens. Season and serve with the stuffed turkey.
