2 Hr


6-8 lb
whole bone in turkey breast
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
2 tsp
dry mustard
1 Tbsp
1 1/2 tsp
1 tsp
thyme leaves
2 tsp
kosher salt
1 tsp
fresh ground black pepper
2 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp
freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 c
dry white wine


1Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the turkey breast, skin side up, on a rack in a roasting pan.
2In a small bowl, combine the garlic, mustard, herbs, salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice to make a paste.
3Loosen the skin from the meat gently with your fingers and smear half of the paste directly on the meat. Spread the remaining paste evenly on the skin
4Pour the wine into the bottom of the roasting pan.
5Roast the turkey for 1 3/4 to 2 hours, until the skin is golden brown and an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F when inserted into the thickest and meatiest areas of the breast. (I test in several places.)
6If the skin is over-browning, cover the breast loosely with aluminum foil.
7When the turkey is done, cover with foil and allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Slice and serve with the pan juices spooned over the turkey.
