Ingredients
4

2
cups chopped portobella mushrooms
2
cups fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed (8 oz.)
1/2
cup oil-packed dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1/2
cup chicken broth
2
cups soft bread crumbs
1/2
cup Romano cheese, finely shredded (2 oz.)
2
1
teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
1
pound uncooked ground turkey
8
ounces bulk Italian sausage
1
recipe Sauteed Green Beans and Onions (recipe below)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large skillet, cook pancetta until crisp; remove from skillet with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Drain all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from skillet. Cook mushrooms in drippings until tender and all liquid has evaporated; cool.
  2. For filling, in medium bowl combine pancetta, mushrooms, mozzarella, and dried tomatoes; set aside.
  3. In large bowl combine eggs and chicken broth. Stir in bread crumbs, Romano cheese, garlic, Italian seasoning, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Stir in turkey and sausage.
  4. On heavy-duty foil or parchment, pat meat mixture into a 9x12-inch rectangle. Evenly sprinkle filling on meat mixture. From one long end of foil or parchment, begin rolling the meat mixture jelly-roll-style. Transfer the roll, seam side down, to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. *See Roll in Flavor below.
  5. Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads 160 degrees F. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Top with oregano. Serve with Sauteed Green Beans and Onions. Makes 8 servings.
From the Test Kitchen
*Roll in Flavor:

For extra flavor, cheese and veggies are rolled into Rolled Turkey Loaf. To shape, place the turkey mixture on parchment or heavy-duty foil. Pat to a 9x12-inch rectangle, then evenly sprinkle with the filling. Beginning at one long side, roll up jelly-roll style, using the parchment to lift and roll. Once rolled, lift using the parchment and transfer to a foil-lined, rimmed baking pan. Use your hands to adjust the loaf seam-side down.
