  • Whisk salt, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, 4 cups water and 1 Tbsp. Cajun seasoning in large bowl until blended.
  • Remove and discard skin from turkey breast; place turkey in prepared brine. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in medium skillet on medium heat. Add onions; cook 5 to 7 min. or until softened, stirring frequently. Spoon into separate large bowl. Add stuffing mix, cranberries, nuts, sage, egg, remaining water and 1 Tbsp. of the remaining Cajun seasoning; mix well.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Remove turkey from brine; pat dry with paper towels. Use sharp knife to make lengthwise cut in bottom of turkey breast, being careful to not cut through to opposite side of breast. Open breast, then place upside down on plastic wrap-covered work surface; cover with additional sheet of plastic wrap. Pound to 1/2-inch thickness. Remove and discard top sheet of plastic wrap.
  • Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of the remaining Cajun seasoning over turkey; cover with stuffing mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges, spreading to form even layer of stuffing. Starting at one long side, roll up turkey tightly, pulling plastic wrap away from turkey as it is rolled.
  • Rub remaining Cajun seasoning onto top and side of turkey roll; top with bacon, placing in single layer over roll-up. Use butcher's twine to tie roll-up closed, placing knots about 2 inches apart. Place, seam side down, on rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until turkey is done (165°F). Remove turkey from oven; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 15 min. before cutting into 10 slices to serve.

How to Perfectly Cook the Turkey

To avoid over or undercooking the turkey roll-up, use a digital oven-safe thermometer with a probe. Insert the end of the probe into centre of turkey roll-up before placing in oven and baking as directed. The digital display outside the oven will let you check the internal temperature of the turkey as it bakes. Set the alarm for the recommended baking temperature so the thermometer will beep to let you know when the turkey is done.

Note

To make rolling the turkey breast easier, use bottom sheet of plastic wrap to help start rolling up the turkey breast as directed, pulling the plastic wrap away from the turkey as it is rolled up.
