I made these again last night with a couple of changes. I added a pre-made basil pesto and more of the sun dried tomato/goat cheese filling -- I loved them even more than the first time!

I want to try a few different fillings next time. Thoughts?

    I use many combinations for stuffed leg of lamb, pork  loins rolled, veal breast pockets, fatties and a few I can not remember now. I am just across the Eau Gallie Causeway, want to have lunch and talk food?? Thai is my favorite.

    Here is a basic list:

    Turkey, Thighs, Boneless, Stuffed, Richard Fl

    Sorry for all the pics, but at my age it is the only way I can
    remember what I did. It was a great meal served with jasmine coconut
    rice.**************Was in Publix yesterday looking for something for dinner and
    came across some turkey thighs marked down from $2.99/Lb to $.99/Lb due to date
    expiration.They had 2/2 packs and they both came home with me. Was going to
    debone and stuff each of the four separately, but realized they were so heavy
    that I decided to use just 2 thighs to make a big turkey fattie or stuffed roll.
    You call it. Each thigh deboned was 14-16 ozs and the total cooked weight was 2
    3/4 lbs.

    2  Turkey Thighs, about 1 lb each, deboned. 

     Margherita Capicola 

     Muenster Cheese 

     Roasted Hatch Green Chiles 

     Mexican Cotija Cheese 

     Mango Chutney 

     Any regular poultry seasoning 

    Optional Stuffings: 


     Pine Nuts 

     Ham Slices 

     Feta Cheese 

     Apple Sauce 

     Dried Cherries or other fruit, moistened 

     Couscous or Rice 

     Fruit Jam

    @NightwingXP -- yes, indirect. You can see how I did them before HERE.  

    Thanks, Richard -- Maybe I'll go Mediterranean next time... feta, kalamata olives, spinach, pine nuts, etc.
