Steps Stuffed turkey roll

To prepare the turkey breast stuffing Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots, onions and celery ( chopped ) and cook, stirring often, until soft.
Add the skinless sausage and continue to cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the sausage is cooked through and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Season with the sage and thyme.
Add the chicken broth. Stir until dry. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Place the turkey breast on a cutting board, and pound with a meat tenderizer until about 1 cm thick.
Cover all the meat with the bacon slices.
Spread the stuffing over the turkey breast in an even layer, about 0.30 inch ( 6 mm ) thick, leaving a 0.5 inch border all around.

Starting with a short end, roll the turkey into a cylinder.
Tie the roll with kitchen twine with about 1-1/2 inches between each knot.
Roast in a large pot with butter adding salt and ground pepper, about 10 minutes per side.
Pour in chicken broth and cook for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the roll reads 155°F. ( 70° C )

Remove the turkey from the heat and let it rest.
Cut off the kitchen twine.
Transfer the roll to a cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch thick slices.
Arrange on a serving platter and serve with the sauce cooked this way :
Take gravy formed from turkey, add 2 cups chicken broth and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour.
Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until thickened.
