Turkey and Bacon Parcels


Tender turkey medallons are lined with mortadella and Montasio cheese; then, they're wrapped in bacon, tightly sealed and seasoned with a mixture of dried herbs. Cooked in the slow cooker in a mixture of olive oil and red wine, the parcels are best served atop a mound of mashed potatoes. Build in an extra layer of flavor by browning the meat before cooking it slow and low.
