  • Summary

    For maximum juiciness and flavor, pound and season the turkey breasts 24 hours in advance. Swaddling the breasts in butter-rubbed cheesecloth and cooking them in a roasting pan with broth yields a tender, succulent result. This turkey roulade recipe is perfect for a crowd, but is easily halved to feed a smaller crew. Serve a rich gravy alongside.

    Ingredients

    • 2 (3-pound) skin-on, boneless turkey breasts
    • 5 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided
    • 2 teaspoons ground fennel, divided
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 10 ounces sweet or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed, crumbled
    • 1 1/2 cups homemade croutons (see Cooks’ Note) or plain small-dice store-bought croutons
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened, divided
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 2 cups peeled, 1/4"–1/2"-cubed butternut squash
    • 1 cup chopped fennel
    • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 3 tablespoons chopped thyme
    • 1 bunch Tuscan kale, stemmed, coarsely chopped (about 6 cups)
    • 5 cups (or more) low-sodium chicken broth, divided
    • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
    • Butcher’s twine; cheesecloth; a large roasting pan or 2 (13x9") baking dishes
