Grilled Turkey Breast With Basil & Mozzarella

By DawnRJackson

Grilled Turkey Breast With Basil & Mozzarella
  • Olive oil for coating

  • 1 package Honeysuckle White® Turkey Breast

  • 4 slice mozzarella cheese

  • 1 small bunch fresh basil leaves

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1/4 cup salted butter, at room temperature

  • 1 large clove garlic, minced

  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. Prepare your gas or charcoal grill for medium-high direct heat grilling. Oil the grill rack.

  2. Butterfly the turkey breasts using a long, thin, sharp knife. Cut each turkey tenderloin horizontally into the thickest part, to within 1/2-inch of the other side (so that it can be opened like a book). Cut in half completely the other way so one split turkey breast is two portions.

  3. Open the tenderloin like a book and place between sheets of plastic wrap. Pound lightly, using a meat mallet, to even out the thickness. Remove the top sheet of wrap.

  4. Place 1 slice of cheese and a few basil leaves on one half of the breast. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roll the breast or fold in half.

  5. Coat with a little olive oil, and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.

  6. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 3 ingredients with a fork and mix well. Form into a log in waxed paper and refrigerate until ready for use.

  7. Grill turkey breasts for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the center.

  8. Top each breast with a pat of the garlic butter.

Just mention "turkey" amd I am going to read the recipe. I have never even thought to fix turkey in this way. Adding the cheese and the herbs will make this a wonderful combination of flavors.
