Roasted Turkey Breast

My family loves turkey which I like to make often.   When I don't want to get involved in making a whole turkey, I turn to a hotel style turkey breast. An easy and tasty alternative that makes a nice Sunday dinner.

1 Hotel Style Turkey Breast - I like Shady Brook Farms
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 clove garlic, minced
2 sage leaves, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon thyme
2 thin slices of fresh lemon
2 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt, optional
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Rinse turkey breast and place one tablespoon of sea salt in turkey cavity. Let set while you prepare butter mixture.  Cream together butter, garlic, sage, rosemary and thyme. Rinse and dry turkey breast. Next the cream mixture goes between the skin and turkey meat. Place turkey in roasting pan with breast side up. Work your fingers under the skin at the openings on each side of the breast. This creates a pocket that you will fill with the butter mixture. After you have put half the butter mixture on each side finish by sliding  one slice of lemon into each pocket. Spread two tablespoon butter on outside of turkey skin. Salt and pepper. Roast according to instructions on turkey.

Now you have an easy and delicious turkey with out the fuss!!
