We wanted our stuffed turkey breast to cook evenly, so we butterflied the breast and pounded it to an even thickness. We cooked the stuffed breast in a moderate oven so that it didn’t dry out, and brushed the exterior with oil, salt, pepper, and sugar to keep the meat moist and flavorful. We found bread-based stuffings too bland, so we included full-flavored vegetables, strong cheeses, and lots of herbs in our stuffing recipe.

Serves 6 to 8

Before stuffing the turkey, make sure the stuffing is completely chilled. Some stores only sell boneless turkey breasts with the skin still attached; the skin can be removed easily with a paring knife. This recipe calls for one turkey breast half. Don't buy an entire breast with two lobes of meat; it's too large for this recipe.
