Plated Thanksgiving turkey roll made in a Hot Logic Mini

It’s hard to make Thanksgiving dinner for one or two people without becoming totally buried in pots and pans, and leftovers. It’s even harder if you are on the road or camping over the holiday.

If you want all the authentic flavors of turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing without ANY crusty pans to clean up, and only enough leftovers for a snack the next day this recipe is for you. It’s super easy, comes together in minutes, cooks in 2 hours, and you’re only left with a glass dish to clean up.

You’ll need a Hot Logic Mini

The only special equipment you need for this recipe is a Hot Logic Mini personal food cooker/warmer. It’s my favorite gadget for my vanlife adventures. Now I’m using it at home to cook too — I have five, I love them so much (and no, Hot Logic doesn’t pay me to say that). Here are links to both the 120V (regular plug) version and the 12V car version.

Only three ingredients needed

You’ll need just three items from the grocery store to make this meal:

  • Fresh turkey breast – a 3-pound “roast” or if available, get a 1 pound slice.
  • Stovetop brand stuffing mix. I discuss why I use Stovetop here.
  • Cranberry sauce (I prefer the whole berry kind for this recipe)

Yep, that’s it.

Any fresh turkey breast will work, but you won’t use all of it. Cut off about a 1-pound slice (most pre-packaged turkey breast “roasts” are ~ 3 pounds). Wrap up and freeze the turkey you don’t use.

Packaged fresh turkey breast

Before you start assembling your turkey roll, prepare the stuffing mix according to the package directions (if you have a hot water kettle just add the mix, boiling water and butter together in a bowl and fluff with a fork. No need to mess with a pan).

Butter a 36oz lidded rectangular glass dish and set aside for the turkey.

Time to use your muscle

Wrap the turkey breast slice in plastic wrap or place in a zip-lock bag and use a meat mallet (or any large heavy object) to pound the meat flat.

Here’s a video (and yes, I know I keep forgetting to turn my phone horizontal- oops) showing you how to pound it out. Have fun.

OK — now your turkey breast is flattened into a rectangle (sort of) and ready to assemble.

Smear on a layer of cranberry sauce. Save the rest for a garnish later, or to dollop on your oatmeal, or spread on a bagel — yum.

Add a layer of prepared stuffing (make up the entire box, and smear on about 1 1/2 cups, placing the remainder in the 36 oz glass dish you’ve prepared.
