Prepare a spicy filling for meat loaf :all the ingredients (except spices)must be coarsely crushed. This work can be done quickly and conveniently using a food processor ( slicing attachment).
In a saucepan, heat the olive oil (2-3 tbsp), place the sliced onions, garlic, prunes and almonds in the hot oil. Add a little salt and pepper, warm up the filling for a couple of minutes , add dry spices, mix, turn off the heat, let the filling cool a little.
Prepare the meat layer for the roll. The meat should be pre-washed and well dried. The thigh of a Turkey does not have a smooth surface like any other type of meat (beef, etc...), but the Turkey meat (especially the thigh)is well gelled during heat treatment, it can be safely cut in different directions, forming a more or less smooth surface in this way, and even if "holes" are formed, cut small pieces from the edges and "fill" the voids with them. To make the Turkey roll juicy and look "whole", bake it in the cooking sleeve. Cut a square from the baking sleeve, cut on one side-you will get a long single-layer cloth. On the work surface, put the sleeve leaf, on the place where the meat will be put, sprinkle a little salt and pepper, lay out the Turkey pieces tightly, top the meat with salt and pepper.
Place the filling on the meat, 2 cm apart from the edges.
Roll the meatloaf with a film, pulling the sides tightly from the beginning and from the sides. Wrap the roll in cling film along the entire length of the film, additionally tie with a cooking cord. Transfer the prepared roll to a baking dish. Bake the roll in the oven at t 200 C, 30 minutes . Then reduce the heat to 170 degrees and cook for another 30 minutes. Hold the finished roll in the oven for another 20 minutes.
