Skewered Turkey and Bacon Rolls

This is a classic dish taught by my Irish flatmate long long time ago. It is great for summer as it can be barbecued or grilled. Here are the ingredients:

Turkey slices (~ 1 cm thick, it will be harder to roll if it is any thicker), smoked bacon (smoked gives more flavour to the turkey), pasta sauce, red/green pepper and fresh basil leaves which is missing from the pic.

Put a slice of bacon, spread it with some pasta sauce, and put some fresh basil leaves on top of it:

Lay the turkey slice on top of that. Roll it and stick it with a bamboo skewer like satay. You can skewer some vegetable like onions, mushrooms or red/green pepper, just to make the dish a bit healthier:

Pop it into the grill (150 degree celsius) for 20 mins, and flip it and another 20 mins the other side. Served with cuscus :

I find it to be a bit dry as it didn't has sauce. I could have made a tomato based sauce for it, but then again, I was too hungry.

It is ideal for barbecue, and it always tastes better with barbecue. If you don't have fresh basil leaves, those dried version is alright too.
