How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cook and stir bacon in large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.
Add shallots to reserved drippings; cook 5 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add apricots, raisins and dressing; mix well. Stir in bread crumbs. Cool 10 min.
Place turkey, smooth side down, between 2 large sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness. (Flattened turkey piece should measure about 12 by 10 inches.) Remove top sheet of plastic wrap.
Spread spinach onto turkey to within 1/2 inch of all sides; top with cheese. Shape apricot mixture into 10-inch log; place about 2 inches from bottom edge of one long side of turkey. Sprinkle bacon along top edge of fruit log.
Roll up turkey tightly, starting at bottom edge.
Tie closed with kitchen string, knotting string about every 2 inches to secure. Brush with butter.
Place turkey in lightly floured oven roasting bag; tie bag closed. Place in shallow pan. Bake 1-1/4 hours or until done (165°F). Remove from oven. Let stand 10 min. before carefully removing turkey from bag and slicing to serve.
