How to Make Old Bay Butter Roasted Turkey Breast
- 3 carrots, halved lengthwise and crosswise
- 1 leek, discard dark-green parts from the leeks. Dice the white parts of the leeks into 1-inch pieces
- 1 large white onion, quartered
- 1 bunch of fresh thyme and fresh sage
- ¼ cup white wine or chicken broth
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 Honeysuckle White® Bone-In Turkey Breast
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Place carrots, leeks, onions, and fresh herbs in a 9×13 roasting pan.
- Pour white wine or chicken broth into the pan.
- In a small bowl, stir together the butter and Old Bay seasoning.
- Loosen the skin on the Honeysuckle White® Bone-In 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.
- Place the turkey on top of the vegetables in the roasting pan. Roast the Honeysuckle White® Bone-In Turkey Breast 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. You will baste the turkey 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. About 2 hours to fully cook.
- Remove from the oven and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let rest for 15 minutes, or until the 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.
