Sounds like the perfect recipe for Thanksgiving to us from our friends at Whole Foods
- 1 (6- to 7-pound) full bone-in turkey breast or 2 split bone-in turkey breasts
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
- 1 small shallot, tritato finemente
- 1 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cucchiaino di pepe nero macinato
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 cup apple cider or hard apple cider
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place turkey breast on a rack in a roasting pan. In una piccola ciotola, stir together butter, sage, scalogno, sale e pepe. Loosen skin over turkey and rub about 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter mixture under skin. Rub remainder of butter all over turkey. Roast in the middle of the oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast registers 165°F or juices run clear when a paring a knife is poked in the thickest part of breast, circa 1 3/4 a 2 hours for full breast and about 1 hour for split breasts. Transfer to a cutting board while you prepare gravy.
Pour the drippings from the roasting pan into a glass cup and allow to set for 1 minuto; spoon off 1 tablespoon of the fat that floats to top and place it in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and stir in flour. Cucinare, stirring, 1 minuto. Slowly stir in cider. Spoon off and discard remaining fat from top of pan juices into a cup; stir remaining juices into gravy. Cucinare, stirring frequently, until gravy thickens, 3 a 4 minuti. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired. Carve turkey breast into slices, transfer to a platter and serve with gravy.
