Around Town with Rob Ford
The bird seems to be the highlight of Thanksgiving dinner whether you have a small group or a large group. Below is a recipe for the holiday or any night of the week. Most of our family likes white meat, but we do have a few, me included, that prefer the dark meat, minus the legs, so I make a whole turkey when it comes to Thanksgiving. Now on non-holidays, as a monthly dinner, I experiment often on just the turkey breast. The turkey breast is also perfect for a twosome or a foursome. Don›t just wait for Thanksgiving to eat turkey. If there is anything I can›t stand, it is a dry turkey or breast. I think everyone would agree and this recipe didn›t disappoint. Tons of flavor, tenderness and moistness are what you get if you let it rest to absorb all those juices inside. This will be my recipe used on a whole turkey this year. It was that scrumptious! Have a very blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends.
Roasted Pesto Turkey Breast / Whole Turkey
1 turkey breast, 5-6 pounds
2 T. jarred basil pesto reserved
1 wedge (1/4) sweet onion
2 whole garlic bulbs, peeled
2 T. melted butter
Montreal steak seasoning
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place 1 tablespoon pesto, onion, garlic and sprinkles of steak seasoning inside the cavity. Rub the remaining 1 tablespoon of pesto over the top of the breast, and then pour the butter over the pesto. Sprinkle with Montreal steak seasoning and place in roasting pan. Cover with foil. Roast the turkey breast until the meat thermometer reached 165 degrees, about 2/12 hours. Remove the foil for the last 30 minutes of roasting. Baste with drippings two times during that 30 minutes. Let rest 15 minutes before carving. For a whole turkey, double the ingredients and roast as directed. www.sandiesgalleyandmore.com
