Turkey breast with blue cheese and pear

This is a recipe gained from my boyfriend’s mother – she’s really an artist in a kitchen and with this redolent turkey she has captivated my both heart and palate  :)

This meal is a combination of 3 things I like a lot – poultry, sweetness and blue smelly cheese :)

To prepare these delights you’ll need:

  • 1 big double turkey breast
  • 5 oz. of blue cheese, e.g. Gorgonzola
  • 2 mellow pears
  • Bunch of cashew nuts
  • salt,pepper, light meat marinade



Wash the meat and prepare 4-6 equal slices. Tenderize each slide so that they are thinner and bigger.

Marinade turkey using some marinade with delicate flavor. It would be perfect if you could do it a day or few hours in advance – meat will be much more delicate. Then fry the turkey until it’s ready, change it’s sides often. It takes a bit longer comparing to chicken meat.

On each meat slice place a half of pear and quite thick slice of cheese on that. Wrap it with aluminum foil and put it into hot oven fro 8 minutes.

If fresh pears are not available, you can use canned pears in syrup.

After this time remove the foil and add some cashew nuts on the top.
