Enjoy the taste of fall with this one-dish meal made with turkey breast rolled and stuffed with ham and rice pilaf that's mixed with pear, celery and raisins. Top the turkey rolls with a flavorful jam that's made from apricot preserves. We found that letting the rice pilaf rest for a few minutes after cooking and before adding it to the dish makes it a bit fluffier. This lets the steam out, giving the rice a chance to fluff out. Running a fork through the rice helps to separate it, which also makes it fluffier. Serve this with asparagus for a delicious dinner.


Unprepared rice pilaf mix

6 oz


1 medium, cored and diced


1 rib(s), medium, thinly sliced


2 Tbsp

Uncooked boneless skinless turkey breast

1 pound(s)

96% fat-free deli sliced ham

3 oz, 4 thin slices

Table salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper


Apricot preserves

½ cup(s)


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add rice pilaf with its seasoning packet, pear, celery and raisins. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed, 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F; lightly spray a 1 1/2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Layer turkey breasts between 2 sheets of wax paper; pound gently to flatten. Remove wax paper. Top each breast with a slice of ham and spread each with about 1/4 cup rice to within 1/2-inch of edge. Roll up gently from wide end; secure rolls with toothpicks. Spoon remaining rice pilaf into baking dish. Place turkey rolls, seam-side down, on pilaf. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake, covered with foil, abotu 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt preserves in a small saucepan over low heat. Press through a sieve into a small bowl; discard solids. Brush preserves over rolls; bake 10 minutes longer.
