Sweet & Sticky Glaze Turkey
Easy to carve and serve, this delicious turkey breast is a stress-free alternative to the traditional whole bird. Although perfect for a small cozy family gathering, this recipe can also be doubled or tripled to serve a crowd.
½ French baguette, about
5 oz ( 150 g)
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
1 cup (250 mL) cubed, aged white Cheddar cheese, about
4 oz ( 125 g)
½ cup (125 mL ) dried apricots, pear or apple
¼ cup (50 mL) each dried cranberries and golden raisins
2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped fresh rosemary, divided
1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme leaves
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted
1 boneless, skinless turkey breast, about
1 kg ( 2 lb), butterflied (see Tip)
½ tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper
½ cup (125 mL) melted apricot jam
2 tbsp (30 mL) each brown sugar, wholegrain
mustard and cider vinegar Dijon
1. Preheat the oven to
325°F ( 160°C). Meanwhile, position the
multipurpose blade in the work bowl. Tear the bread into large chunks. Add to
the food processor along with the onion, cheese, dried apricots, cranberries,
raisins, rosemary and thyme. Pulse until crumbled but still chunky. Add the egg
and butter; pulse just until the stuffing comes together uniformly.
2. Spread out the turkey breast and sprinkle both sides evenly with salt and pepper. Arrange the stuffing on one side; fold over the other side and tie with kitchen twine to securely enclose filling. Transfer to a rack arranged on a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet.
3. Using the mini bowl and blade, blend the apricot jam with the brown sugar, mustard, vinegar and remaining rosemary on low speed until combined and smooth. Brush ¼ of this mixture evenly over the turkey breast. Roast, basting liberally with remaining glaze, for 1½ hours or until an instant-read thermometer, inserted into individually into the meat and the stuffing registers
165°F ( 74°C). Let stand, tented with foil, for 10 minutes
before slicing. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Tip: To butterfly the turkey, lay the breast flat on a clean work surface. Cut almost all the way through, from one side of the breast so that opens like a book. Or, to simplify preparation, ask the butcher to butterfly the breast for you before purchasing.
