Glazed turkey breast with fruit stuffing

Submitted by: IMA100

Number of Servings: 12


    4-5 lb whole turkey, bone-in (thawed)

    2 Tbls fresh rosemary, chopped
    2 Tbls fresh thyme leaves, chopped
    2 Tbls olive oil

    1 small onion, thinly sliced
    1 apple, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 pear, peeled and thinly sliced
    1/4 C dried cranberries(or raisins)

    2 C apple juice (divided)
    1 Tbls brown sugar
    1 Tbls brown mustard
    1 Tbls olive oil


Preheat oven to 325. Place turkey breast, skin side up, on a rack in roasting pan.

In small bowl, combine the herbs and the olive oil to make a paste. Loosen the skin fromthe meat gently with fingers making 2 deep pockets between skin and meat. Smear half the paste directly on the meat. Spread remaining paste evenly over the top of the skin.

In another bowl, mix together onion, and fruit. Stuff each pocket with mixture.

Pour 1 C apple juice in bottom of roasting pan. Roast turkey for 1 3/4 to 2 hours, until skin is golden brown and thermometer reads 165 F. If skin is over-browning, cover loosely with aluminum foil.

Combine remaining cup of apple juice, brown sugar, mustard and olive oil in a sauce pan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until it becomes thickened and reduced in volume to about 3/4 C. Use to baste turkey during the last 30 minutes of cooking.

When done, cover with foil and allow to stand at room temp for 15 minutes.
