Cooking the Turkey Roulade
Last week, we shared a step-by-step tutorial on how to prepare the turkey breasts for a delicious roulade. Now, let’s dive into the cooking process. This Sage and Rosemary Slow Roasted Turkey Roulade is incredibly juicy, with caramelized skin on the outside. It’s the ideal centerpiece when you want to skip the hassle of carving a whole bird and dealing with leftovers.
The Secret to Juicy and Succulent Turkey Roulade
Wrapping the Turkey Breast with the Skin
To ensure maximum juiciness, we wrap the turkey breast with the skin, acting as a barrier to prevent it from drying out during the cooking process.
Our favorite method for cooking turkey breast is slow roasting. By using a low oven temperature, the turkey cooks evenly and gradually, resulting in a succulent and perfectly cooked roulade. This method guarantees a moist and flavorful turkey roll that will leave your taste buds begging for more.
How to Prepare the Turkey Roulade for Slow Roasting
Step 1: Prepping the Roulade
After removing the turkey roulade from the fridge, remove the plastic wrap and pat dry the surface using paper towels. Place the roulade on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan.
Step 2: Oil and Seasoning
Brush the top, sides, and bottom of the turkey roulade with unflavored oil. Sprinkle salt all over the turkey to enhance the flavors during the cooking process.
Achieving Perfect Results with a Meat Thermometer
For foolproof results, we highly recommend using a meat thermometer. Simply set the temperature to 160°F and let the oven work its magic. After cooking, quickly broil or pan-fry the roulade to achieve a delicious caramelized skin.
