Stuffed Turkey Breast
  1. In large, non-reactive bowl, whisk together the water, peppercorns, ¼ cup salt, and bay leaves. Place the turkey breast in the brine and cover with additional water, if needed.
  2. Cover the bowl and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  3. When ready to cook preheat your oven to 375°F.
  4. Remove the turkey breast from the brine, rinse, pat dry, and set on a large cutting board. Slice lengthwise into the thickest portion of turkey, but do not cut all the way through.
  5. Brush the inside of the turkey breast with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the rosemary, parsley, and orange zest. Spread the ½ cup olives, cranberries, and minced garlic over the bottom half of the turkey breast then fold the top over the bottom.
  6. Brush the outside of the turkey breast with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place the prosciutto slices over top of turkey breast. Using three pieces of kitchen twine, tie the turkey breast on each end and in middle.
  7. Place the turkey in a roasting pan or jelly roll pan and roast for 15 minutes. Turn the heat down to 350°F and roast for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 155°F.
  8. Tent foil over the turkey and let it rest for about 15 minutes.
  9. Once the turkey is cool enough to handle, remove the kitchen twine and slice. Arrange the slices on platter.
Dairy-Free Turkey Gravy
  1. While the turkey rests, pour the turkey juices from the roasting pan into a saucepan over medium heat. Add the buttery spread.
  2. Once the spread is melted, sprinkle in the flour and whisk until smooth. Continue whisking as you add 1 cup chicken broth. If it becomes too thick, continue adding chicken broth, as needed. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, whisking constantly.
  3. Taste, and season to taste with salt and black pepper, if needed.
  4. Remove the gravy from the heat and drizzle it over the sliced turkey breast. Garnish with the remaining ¼ cup green olives and orange slices. Serve warm.
