1 whole turkey breast, boned

3 cloves garlic, cut in halves

Salt, pepper

6 slices prosciutto or cooked ham

4 eggs

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Butter or margarine

6 slices mortadella

Fresh rosemary sprigs or dried rosemary leaves

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup wine

1 onion, sliced

1 shallot, sliced

Have butcher remove all turkey bones. Butterfly meat to spread out into flat sheet. With sharp knife, make 6 random incisions in breast and place garlic half in each. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Rub in garlic. Cover with layer of prosciutto slices.

Beat eggs with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in parsley. Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons butter in large non-stick skillet placed over medium heat. Pour in eggs and cook to soft, whole round omelet or frittata (do not overcook). Cool slightly. Place omelet over prosciutto.

Heat olive oil in large Dutch oven or roasting skillet placed over low heat. Add turkey roll and cook to brown evenly, turning occasionally. Increase heat and sprinkle with wine. After about 5 minutes or after wine has evaporated, add 1/3 cup butter, onion and shallot. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour 15 minutes, basting top occasionally.

Let stand about 15 minutes before carving. Cut into thin slices and arrange on serving platter. At time of serving, heat sauce and pour some over slices and pass remainder. Makes 20 to 24 servings.
