600 g turkey breast
50 g Grana Padano PDO
50 g shelled pistachios
50 g almonds
20 g butter
1 bunch sage
1 egg white
Salt and pepper to taste


In a saucepan, melt the butter with a few leaves of sage and sear the turkey breast all over to seal the meat. Once seared, leave the roast turkey to cool on a tray covered in parchment paper.
Roughly chop the pistachios and almonds. Lightly beat the egg white in a bowl, add the chopped nuts and grated Grana Padano and mix well.
Cover the roast turkey with the mixture, close the parchment paper, wrapping it closely around the meat and cook in a preheated oven at 200°C for 25-35 minutes.
When cooked, remove the roast from the oven and leave to cool. Serve garnished with pistachios and a sprinkle of ground pepper.
