Chef Kevin Belton, New Orleans chef, TV host, and cookbook author has a flavor-packed solution with his boudin-stuffed turkey breast. Even if you’re an avowed dark meat person, this juicy and tender turkey breast might have you switching teams.
Kevin’s Boudin (pronounced BOO-DAN) is what truly makes this roulade special. For the unfamiliar, boudin is a cooked sausage made from pork, rice, various vegetables, and typically Creole seasonings. It’s what helps keep a lean cut like turkey breast moist and also adds deep savory notes to an otherwise fairly plain protein.
A generous basting of lemon-garlic butter, followed by lots of his custom spice blend, makes for a shatteringly crispy skin with tons of flavor. It isn’t a whole bird, but for a smaller family gathering, this rolled turkey breast is just as stunning once sliced and its beautiful spirals are revealed.
