Spinach and Feta Stuffed Turkey Breast

This is an incredibly easy, sophisticated recipe that's also family friendly! Also: it's ready in one hour, start to finish. 


Spinach mixture

  • 1 small onion chopped (around 1/2 cup)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 oz spinach
  • 3 oz feta cheese
  • 2-3 slices Butterball turkey bacon diced


  • One Butterball Easy Fresh turkey breast bone-in or boneless
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • Garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 400F/205C.
  2. Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy (preferably cast iron) frying pan.
  3. Add onion and garlic and cook on medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add spinach, cover the pan, and cook until spinach is just wilted, around another 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and place spinach into a bowl.
  6. Crumble feta into the spinach and stir to combine. Add turkey bacon and mix ingredients together.
  7. Using a very sharp knife, with the bone side down, make a widthwise cut in the middle of the turkey breast from one end to the other. Using your hand, open up a pocket in the turkey breast.
  8. Stuff the pocket with the spinach,feta and bacon mixture.
  9. Close the turkey breast as much as possible (the stuffing will be spilling out, which is fine).
  10. Rub the outside of the turkey breast with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  11. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan and place the stuffed turkey breast into the pan, bone side down. If you’re making other vegetables in the pan with the turkey, toss those in olive oil and arrange around the turkey breast.
  12. Cook at 400F until an internal temperature of 165F/74C is reached, around 40 minutes.
