Stuffed Turkey for 2

The local supermarket had turkey steaks on sale. They were ridiculously thick, like 1 1/2 - 2 " (4-5 cm). I originally wanted to slice them into little strips for stir-frys or for chili, or something that doesn't involve eating a huge slice of turkey. But when I asked the work-a-holic how he wanted his turkey & he said "stuffed", I figured, why not.

Step 1: prepare Chestnut Stuffing, reduced by 1/10th
Step 2: butterfly turkey steak
Step 3: open turkey steaks, place stuffing on top
Step 4: Wrap turkey steaks with kitchen twine, or use skewers
Step 5: place stuffed turkey in an oven dish with 1/4 cup white wine, cover with foil & allow to roast at 180° Celcius (350°F) for 30 minutes.
Step 6: serve with roasted pumpkin.

Granted, there is no gravy, there are no mashed potatoes but I could have made all of those things. Maybe I will if we spend American Thanksgiving here.

The chestnut stuffing sounds really good. I've got to try making this some time. :)
