Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon light olive oil
  • 1 10 Ounce package frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/3 Cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 medium scallions or spring onions
  • 1/4 Cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley
  • 1/2 Ounce dill
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 12 Ounces turkey breast meat

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Grease an 8-inch-square baking dish with half the olive oil; set aside.

In a bowl, mix spinach, feta, ricotta, scallions, parsley, dill and egg until well combined.

Spread a quarter of the spinach mixture down the center of each turkey cutlet, leaving a border on all sides. Roll up and place seam-side down in prepared baking dish. Brush turkey rolls with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme.

Bake about 30 minutes, until turkey is just cooked through and stuffing is heated.
