“I don’t know if a recipe like this exists anywhere but it was an idea I came up with thinking of a way to maximize the flavor of a young turkey breast.I decided that pepperoni inserted into a turkey would be fabulous…and it was. It turned out to be the inspiration to my Italian themed dinner party and was a huge hit. I will make this again.”

Ready In:
2hrs 45mins



  • stab breast numerous times with small steak knife to make slits to insert pepperonis.
  • Pack each slit to ensure full flavor explosion.
  • Put turkey breast in shallow pan and coat with a cup of olive oil.
  • In a small dish, mix parmesean cheese and Italian recipe mix.
  • Apply dry mixture to oiled bird.
  • Cover with tin foil and cook for 2-3 hrs at 350 degrees breast side up. Remove tin foil an hour before the bird is done roasting to ensure a beautiful brown coat.
  • For extra moistness, baste bird every hour.
