Turkey Rolls present well and are actually easy to make. I originally tried a recipe from Fine Cooking and then I took out so many steps (brining, bacon wrapping and browning) that I had to call them "Rolls" instead of "Roulades." In the end the turkey rolls are so much easier and taste superior. This recipe makes two rolls so it is easy to make with a friend or make two and freeze one or bake them both with company. The mushroom and shallot sauce is optional but worth the effort.

Refrigerate until lunchtime.
The sauciness of this dish makes it great served with rice and a crisp salad like the Apple, Celery Salad.
