The Stuffing

Before you start anything, fill a large stock pot up about a quarter of the way with water and get it boiling. While it heats up you can start on the stuffing but cutting the bread into uniformly sized chunks.

Then the shallots. A fine mince is not necessary, because the shallots will basically melt in the pan.

The Stuffing

Heat up one tablespoon of oil in a sauté pan. Jorgensen like to melt a little bit of bacon fat in the pan, but cooking oil works equally well. Add the sausage and reduce the heat.

At this point, we need to advise you to stray a bit from what you see in the pictures. Jorgensen was experimenting when we shot this recipe, and what he ultimately discovered is that the turkey will cook faster if you separate both breasts and stuff them individually. So rather than cramming the stuffing in like you see here, make a lengthwise incision in both breasts and insert the stuffing.

By now, the water should be up to a boil. Place the turkey breasts in the steamer basket (or you can make an improvised steaming apparatus, like Jorgensen did here. Cover it, and let the steam do its work.

The Turkey

You'll need a meat thermometer to know if when your turkey is ready. The temperature of a done turkey should be 55º C. It should take about 25 to 35 minutes. But the temperature should be the ultimate indicator of doneness. Anyone worried that 55º is too low can relax, Jorgensen says. You're going to sear the meat in the end, that should bring the temperature up enough in the end.
