Stuffed Turkey

If you're looking to spruce up your annual Turkey Day centerpiece, look no further than this Italian-inspired recipe from JBF Award–winning chef, restaurateur, and culinary icon Mario Batali. Riffing on the traditional whole-roasted bird, Batali butterflies the breast; stuffs it with hearty sausage, chestnuts, prosciutto, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and a host of aromatics; and rolls it up into one festive package. “I love serving turkey year-round because it's easy, delicious, and economical," says Batali. "This is the way I do my Thanksgiving turkey, which makes it a lot easier than a whole bird when it comes down to carving.”
