Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F.Wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces.Add potatoes, half the BBQ Seasoning and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to an unlined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the bottom of the oven, flipping halfway through, until tender and golden-brown, 22-25 min.
Meanwhile, core, then finely chop half the jalapeño (whole jalapeño for 4 ppl), removing seeds for less heat, if desired. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeños!)Zest half the lemon (use same for 4 ppl), then cut into wedges.Combine jalapeños, lemon zest, cream cheese and cheddar cheese in a small bowl.
Carefully slice into the centre of each turkey breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2 inch intact on the other end. Open up turkey like a book. Pat dry with paper towels, then season with remaining BBQ Seasoning, salt and pepper. Dollop jalapeño mixture onto one side of each turkey. Close the other side over filling.
Wrap 2 bacon strips around each stuffed turkey breast. (TIP: Overlapping strips by 1/2 inch helps keep bacon on turkey!) Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then bacon-wrapped turkey. Pan-fry until golden, 2-3 min per side. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 16-18 min.**
Meanwhile, trim green beans.Wipe the same pan clean, then reheat over medium. When hot, add green beans and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until water evaporates, 4-5 min. Add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter. Cook, stirring constantly, until butter melts and coats green beans, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat, then cover to keep warm.
Let turkey rest for 5 min before serving. Divide potatoes, green beans and turkey between plates. Squeeze a lemon wedge over green beans, if desired, then sprinkle crispy shallots over top.
