Empire Half Turkey Breast
Empire half turkey breast
about 1/2 cup of chopped fresh herbs - I use sage and thyme
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
1. Mix herbs, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Gently cut the membrane that holds the skin on - just along the front so that you make a pocket.
2. Stuff in the herb mixture. Smooth the skin back down and rub the turkey with the olive from your hands. Salt and pepper the outside.
3. Roast in a 425 degree oven until the thickest part gets to 165 degrees - a little over an hour. Remove from oven and tent with foil for 5 minutes. Take the meat off and slice - save the skin and bone for stock.
