Turkey Galantine's picture
  Frozen boneless turkey roast 2 (Packaged)
  Unflavored gelatin 2 Tablespoon (2 Envelopes)
  Light cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Butter/Margarine 4 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chicken broth 3 Cup (48 tbs) (From 2 Cans, 14 Ounce Each)
  Hard cooked egg yolks 2
  Carrot slice 4
  Parsley sprigs 4

1. Two days before your party, roast frozen turkey roasts in their packages. Remove from packages; cool; wrap in foil or plastic wrap; chill.
2. One day before your party, sprinkle 1 envelope of the gelatin over the cream in a small bowl; let stand several minutes to soften gelatin.
3. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter or margarine in a medium-size saucepan; stir in flour, salt and 1 cup of the chicken broth. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and bubbles 3 minutes; stir in gelatin mixture until dissolved; remove from heat. Chill till thick as unbeaten egg white.
4. Place turkey roasts on a wire rack set in a jelly-roll pan. Spoon part of the thickened gelatin mixture over roasts to coat; chill until set. Repeat twice more with remaining gelatin mixture, chilling until set between each coat, to make a smooth even coating.
5. Press egg yolks through a sieve into a small bowl; blend in remaining ,2 tablespoons butter or margarine. Press mixture through a cake-decorating set onto top of one roast to form blossoms. Cut petal shapes from carrot slices; arrange with parsley sprigs around eggs to make flowers and stems.
6. Sprinkle remaining 1 envelope gelatin over the remaining 2 cups chicken broth in a small saucepan; heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves. Chill until as thick as unbeaten egg white. Spoon part over decorations on roast to coat well. Transfer both roasts to a clean tray or plate; chill.
7. Pour remaining gelatin mixture into an 8x8x2-inch pan; chill several hours, or until firm.
8. When ready to serve, place decorated roast on a large serving plate; slice the second roast and arrange slices at side. Cut gelatin mixture in the pan into very thin cubes; spoon evenly around meat on plate.
