A Turkey Roulade is surprisingly easy to prepare, super flavorful, and much easier to carve.

A roulade is a dish of filled rolled meat or pastry. Roulade can be savory or sweet. Swiss roll is an example of a sweet roulade. Traditionally found in various European cuisines, the term roulade originates from the French word rouler, meaning “to roll”.

How far in advance can you make turkey roulade?

It can be prepped up to 2 days ahead of time – that’s the best part! On the morning of the big meal, take the roulades out of the fridge and let them rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. Pop them in the preheated oven about 2 hours before you’re ready to serve

Beef for Rouladen

Use top round roast (sometimes called topside or beef round roast) beef for Rouladen, and more importantly, ask your butcher to cut it for you! You want long thin slices about ¼ inches thick and 6-10 inches long and 4-5 inches wide
