4 servings
Per serving (including side dish) : 433 calories / 51 g carbs / 10 g gras / 32 g proteins / 9 g fiber


  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 Cortland apples, cubed
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) fresh cranberries, chopped
  • 2.5 ml (½ teaspoon) fresh or dried rosemary, chopped
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoon) maple syrup
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) white wine
  • 360 g (1) turkey breast, boneless and skinless
  • 75 g old cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper

Side dish (per person)

  • 125 ml (½ cup) mashed sweet potatoes
  • 125 ml (½ cup) steamed Brussels sprouts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a pan, heat 5 ml of olive oil, and add the onions. Cook over medium-to-low heat for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic, apples, cranberries, and rosemary. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Add the maple syrup, mix thoroughly, and deglaze with white wine. Reduce by half, and then set aside.
  5. To reduce the breast’s thickness, cut it in half along its length, without going all the way to the end (butterfly cut). Lay a film of cellophane paper on a cutting board, put the turkey breast on it, and then cover it with another film of cellophane. Using a meat pounder, standardize the breasts’ width.
  6. Add the cheddar cheese in the breasts, and cover with the apple mix. Roll the breast tightly, and bind it with butcher’s twine or toothpicks. Add the remaining olive oil, as well as salt and pepper.
  7. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 170°F.
  8. Let meat rest wrapped in foil for about 15 minutes before serving.

Bon appétit!
