I love the idea of making a bone-in turkey breast if you have a small family gathering or don’t feel like cooking an entire turkey. All you need are a few ingredients to make the most delicious turkey breast this holiday season.
How to Make Old Bay Butter Roasted Turkey Breast
- 1 Honeysuckle White® Bone-In Turkey Breast
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 3 carrots, halved lengthwise and crosswise
- 1 leek, discard dark-green parts from leeks. Dice leeks into 1-inch pieces
- 1 large white or sweet onion, quartered
- 1 bunch of fresh thyme and fresh sage
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the Honeysuckle White® Bone-In Turkey Breast skin side up in a 9×13 pan.
- In a small bowl, stir together the softened butter and old bay seasoning.
- Loosen the skin 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 later.
- Roast the turkey in the oven for approx. 20 minutes per pound, until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Melt 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. I did this a couple of times during the cooking process.
- Use a meat thermometer to measure the temperature in the center of the thickest part of the breast. Mine took about 2 hours to fully cook.
- Remove from the oven and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let rest for 15 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Slice turkey and serve with your favorite holiday sides.
To baste or not to baste? That is the question!
Basting a turkey is totally optional, however, for this recipe, I love to melt the remaining old bay butter mixture and then take a basting brush and slather it over the turkey while it’s cooking.
Old Bay and butter turkey breast will be your new favorite way to cook a turkey. It’s so juicy, flavorful, and easy to make. I served my oven-roasted turkey breast with stuffing, green beans, and mashed potatoes. This mini Thanksgiving meal came together in under 4 hours.
