Bourbon and Molasses-Glazed Turkey Breast Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

I love all these ingredients individually, so this was a fun recipe to make. I did two things differently, however, out of need. I couldn't find blackstrap molasses at one store, so I used the Grandma's Original Molasses which has more sugar in it. Because of that, I cooked my 2.5 lb bone-in turkey breast at 425 so it wouldn't burn. It took an hour for it to get done. I had almost a cup of the marinade left, so I do think it would be possible to get by with less of that (don't want to waste my Jack Daniel's)--even half the amount. I'll find some useful way to use up the marinade! The marinade gets all nice and carmelized in the bottom of the pan from the basting process. I would make this again, but not for Thanksgiving unless it accompanied a traditional turkey! Thanks for the recipe, 360!

Wow doesn't cover it. This had such a fantastic flavor. I couldn't find the smaller breast at any of my local stores, so I went ahead and got an 8lb. breast. I didnt change the proportions of the marinade/glaze, but I lowered the oven to 325. I'm planning to try this on the grill with chicken this summer.

Delicious and moist. Perfect combination of whiskey and sweet, and I don't even like drinking whiskey! Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try with it with chicken next time.

This is great! I had a 9 lb. bone in turkey breast that I cooked in an electric roaster. I would cut down the alcohol by half and thicken the marinade next time. I used the leftovers in another recipe from this sight - "Dad 's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie" and it was delicious

My family loved this. I also used Grandmas original molasses, also I used Jamison since that was what I had on hand. I cooked it at 425 for 1 hr and it turned out great. I will definitely be making this again.
