Turkey with Cranberries and Bacon recipe

These sweet and salty niblets make for an ideal holiday appetizer. Serve with champagne or sparkling fruit juice for an elegant dining experience.


4 (4-ounce) turkey breasts
12 slices streaky bacon
12 ounces fresh cranberries
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup cranberry juice
Grated zest of 1 medium orange
Salt and pepper, to taste


1) Make the sauce: combine all ingredients in a small pot. Bring to a boil over high heat; lower to a simmer and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Chill until service time.

2) Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

3) Place each turkey breast between two sheets of plastic; gently pound to make each a ½-inch thick steak. Spread reserved cranberry sauce over one side of each steak. Roll up so that cranberry sauce is tucked inside each turkey steak. Wrap each rolled steak in three slices of bacon, holding with cocktail sticks if necessary.

4) Place on prepared baking sheet and cook 20 minutes, until turkey is cooked and bacon is slightly crisp. Serve warm.
