Stuffed Turkey Breast

  • Author: Holley -

  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


Stuffed Turkey Breast, savory with a touch of sweet, you’ll be “stuffed” too!


  • 12 figs, sliced
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 1 carrot (grated)
  • 2 stalks celery (diced)
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 2 Tbsp ghee or coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp almond meal
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 large turkey breast or 6 chicken breasts
  • 6 strips of bacon (optional)


  1. Combine figs, roasted garlic and rosemary with hot water, set aside.
  2. Once the mixture was cooled I put in in a bag with the turkey breast overnight, but this step is entirely optional.
  3. In a pan over medium heat sauté ghee or coconut oil, carrots, celery and onions.
  4. Add sage, roasted garlic, fig and rosemary mix, continue to simmer.
  5. Once the liquid is mostly gone, and veggies are tender-crisp remove from heat, allow to cool slightly.
  6. Butterfly the breasts so they lay out flat.
  7. Add almond meal, coconut flour, and eggs, mix well. If it is too hot it will cook the eggs.
  8. Spoon over the flattened breasts in an even layer.
  9. Depending on size, roll or fold over the breast making a pocket.
  10. Wrap the bacon around the outside of the breast to help keep it together, you can use a toothpick to pin it together, or a couple loops of butchers string.
  11. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 90 min (60 for chicken breasts).
  12. Let rest for a few minutes before slicing.


So many substitutions: add more veggies if you would like, omit the almond meal if you have a nut allergy, experiment with other spices, you can add a serving of cheese if that’s an option for you (although not Paleo). Omit or substitute the fruit, the options are limitless!
