HaPpY tHaNkSgIvInG... But..

It's beginning to look a lot more like CHRISTmas!!
Here is our Turkey recipe for this year, and next and the next!!

~~Citrus Sage Turkey~~

Serves 8, but we prepare a Big Bird ;) so we will double this..


3 tablespoons butter, softened and divided
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (6-pound) bone-in turkey breast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 large orange, sliced
1 large lemon, sliced
4 fresh rosemary sprigs
4 fresh sage leaves
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 onion, quartered
2 cups chicken broth

Stir together 2 tablespoons butter and garlic. Loosen skin from turkey without detaching it; sprinkle salt and pepper under skin. Rub 2 tablespoons garlic mixture over meat. Place fruit slices, rosemary, and sage under skin; replace skin.

Rub remaining 1 tablespoon butter over skin; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon seasoned pepper. Place turkey breast on a lightly greased rack in a broiling pan. Add onion and chicken broth.

Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 30 minutes, basting every 30 minutes. Shield with foil, and bake 1 more hour or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest breast portion registers 170°. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with pan juices.
