Oven Roasted Old Bay Butter Turkey Breast
- 6-8 Servings
- 15 mins Prep Time
- 2 hrs 15 mins Total Time
- 1 Bone-In Turkey Breast
- 3 carrots, halved lengthwise and crosswise
- 1 leek
- 1 large white onion, quartered
- 1 bunch of fresh thyme and fresh sage
- 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1 tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
Step 1Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Step 2Discard dark-green parts from the leeks. Dice the white parts of the leeks into 1-inch pieces. Place carrots, leeks, onions, and fresh herbs in a 9x13 roasting pan.
Step 3Pour white wine or chicken broth into the pan.
Step 4In a small bowl, stir together the butter and Old Bay Seasoning.
Step 5Loosen the skin on the turkey breast with your fingers and spoon some of the butter mixture underneath the skin and also on top of the skin. Reserve some of the butter mixture to baste the turkey with as it roasts.
Step 6Place the turkey on top of the vegetables in the roasting pan. Roast the turkey in the oven for approximately 20 minutes per pound, until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
Step 7Melt the remaining butter mixture in the microwave or on the stove. While the turkey is cooking, take a basting brush and baste the melted butter mixture all over the turkey as it cooks. You will baste the turkey a couple of times during the cooking process.
Step 8Use a meat thermometer to measure the temperature in the center of the thickest part of the breast. It should take about 2 to 2 ½ hours to fully cook.
Step 9Remove from the oven and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let rest for 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
Step 10Slice turkey and serve with your favorite holiday sides.
