  • 2 - 2.5 lbs boneless Turkey breast, skin on*
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter, room temperature (or olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Rinse the turkey breast and pat dry. In a small bowl mix together the butter, herbs, salt and pepper.
  2. Carefully run your fingers between the skin and the flesh from 1 end, being careful not to pull it completely off, creating a pocket. Stuff about half of the herb butter paste under the skin of the breast, and spread it evenly under the skin. Transfer the breast to the roasting pan. Rub the remaining herb butter on the outside of the breast, paying special attention to the top where the skin is.
  3. Place the turkey in the 450ºF oven and roast for 20 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 375ºF and roast for an additional 15-20 minutes, until cooked through, and a thermometer placed in the thickest part of the breast registers 170º F.
  4. Let stand for 10-15 minutes, tented with foil, before slicing.
I bought a bone-in turkey breast at Whole Foods and had the butcher de-bone it.
If it's a larger cut, ask your butcher to roll and tie the boneless breast so that it cooks evenly.

Increase cook time as necessary for a larger cut or bone-in. For a larger, bone-in turkey breast, if it's around 6 lbs, go with 30 minutes at 450º and then drop to 350º and give it about 1 hour 15 minutes
