This is a great way to utilize a turkey breast. We cooked it this evening, and it was plenty for our family of three. The spices were perfect, and the gravy was an excellent compliment. Throw in some chopped root vegetables to roast at the same time, add a green salad, and you've got a fantastic Fall meal!!
Meh.... It was just ok
Excellent ... I roasted a bone in breast following the directions as described. Used some fresh herbs for the Italian Blend, removed excess skin and fat. Sat breast over potatoes, onions, and peppers to roast.
This was great and really easy to do. I have never made gravy before, but using this recipe it turned out good (I did not use the half and half in my gravy, although I may try it in the future). I could not find the exact cut of meat called for, so all I had was a 2 lb boneless, skinless turkey breast. I did make the same amount of butter mixture and rubbed it all over the outside of the turkey breast. My turkey did not take very long at all to cook, only about 40 minutes or so. I used the leftover turkey and gravy in a pot pie the next day.
I made this tonight. Without any prompting, my husband said he really liked it. Huge! I followed the recipe exactly. The gravy was great too! I would like to say that if you have the 3 lb turkey breast (Mine was Butterball brand) that comes with the netting wrapped around it, if you take the netting off, the breast loses shape. I had to re-tie with string and while it did not look as good as the turkey breast usually looks, it cooked great. It was very moist and tender and tasted wonderful too. Next time, I will not remove the netting and will just rub the outside and maybe inject the butter mix inside under the skin with my injecter set. My injecter needle is large, so I don't think it will be clogged using my jarred minced garlic. Since it is only the 2 of us eating, I will use the lefover turkey and gravy to make a turkey pot pie this week. I saw several good recipes on this site for that. (I served with rice and salad. The gravy was great on the rice too!) Thanks for giving us a recipe that adds flavor to an old favorite!
Perfect! I added an extra clove of garlic and used smoked paprika instead of regular paprika (smoked paprika is the BOMB). I also roasted it over some veggies: an onion, celery and parsnips. Everything including the gravy was delicious!! Note: I cooked the turkey for slightly longer than 1 1/2 hours to brown the skin.
The 3lb bone in breast took about 1.5hr at 350. It cooked it perfectly. I wasn't going to make the gravy because I had to open a bottle of wine and I bought pre-packaged gravy, but I made it anyways. This is some of the best gravy I ever tasted, and I made it.
It came out great for a thanksgiving meal for me and my wife.
