Instead of roasting a whole turkey for the holiday banquet, consider serving turkey involtini this year. “Involtini” is Italian for rolls, and the term typically describes rolled meat dishes. Turkey involtini is made with turkey breasts, Mozzarella, prosciutto, and herbs and spices. Although quick and easy to make, it’s still special and festive.

Tips & Tricks

Swap prosciutto for ham if necessary. Keep in mind that prosciutto adds a touch of smoky, umami flavor to this dish. Ham may not work as well in elevating its flavors.

You can also sub mozzarella with Fontina or Gouda cheese.
