butter roasted turkey breast







For many of you  turkey is the symbol of Thanksgiving  and is beautiful (here we eat turkey especially for Christmas) in any case I always thought that sometimes a turkey is a lot for a family that is not very big.

I found this recipe in one of the last Bon Appetit and what caught my attention was that it was a recipe for turkey breast, and just had a frozen, I made this recipe and it was absolutely delicious and still, I took my mom and also I had leftovers (they are so good) to make sandwiches.
 




INGREDIENTS

8 servings

1 skin one bone in turkey breast about
 2.700 k ( 4,5 lb )
1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
salt
pepper
 4 spring thyme
4 spring rosemary
1 head of garlic
cloves peeled and crushed
3/4 cup rum (my mom always add rum when bake  turkey)


Method

Preheat to 180°c (425° F)
Gently loosen skin from turkey breast and rub butter under skin and all over outside of breasts season  and add the rum, salt and pepper.
Scatter thyme springs , rosemary springs and garlic over a large rimmed baking sheet and arrange turkey breast.

  1. Qué rica tiene que estar, me gusta más que el pavo entero. Y, como dices, es ideal para los que somos pocos de familia.
    Un beso.

      I bought a skin-on turkey breast for Thanksgiving this year instead of a whole turkey. Everyone prefers the white meat anyway. How nice that you posted this just in time for me to see it!
      Looks delicious!

  3. Gloria: This looks delicious. I often do a turkey breast during the year. I'll do the whole bird for Thanksgiving since there'll be six of us. We like leftovers too.

  13. Gloria, That roasted turkey breast looks great...nice and moist too! How can you go wrong with all the butter and the great spices. Rum too! I never heard of that before but I'll bet it adds flavor and helps keep the turkey moist! Thanks and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
