Perfect Turkey Fillet Roll

Recipe by By Olivia Gavriel, John Cester’s Quality Poultry And Game

A perfectly cooked bird will impress your guests, every time.

  • Turkey Fillet Roll
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • 1 clove of fresh garlic roughly chopped
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  1. Pre-heat your oven or BBQ to 180°C
  2. Rinse and wipe your freshly stuffed or plain turkey fillet roll dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Transfer the turkey fillet roll to a baking tray and massage it with a simple marinade of 2 tbs olive oil, 30g melted butter, 1 clove of fresh garlic roughly chopped, 3 sprigs of thyme, sea salt and pepper.
  4. Add a tub (or 2 depending on the size) of fresh turkey stock to your baking tray as this will keep the turkey roll moist and succulent and assist with basting the turkey fillet roll during cooking.
  5. Place in your oven and loosely cover it with foil.
  6. Cook for an 1hr for the first kilo then 40mins per kilo thereafter.
  7. Remove the foil for the final 30 mins to brown.
  8. Allow your turkey fillet roll to rest in a warm place for approximately 15minutes before carving. This will ensure that the juices have settled and will make the meat very succulent.
