It's been a busy day today, and I'm all out of inspiration. So I thought I'd show you what every Sunday night dinner looks like hereabouts.
ROAST TURKEY BREAST
Turkey Breast (bone-in or boneless)
Chop the onion and carrot in eighths. Whether boneless or not, salt the bottom only of the turkey. Tuck some of the veggies under the skin, and put the rest under the turkey breast or in the cavity. Rub the upper part of the turkey with olive oil, then sprinkle with garlic powder and basil. Pour about 1/4" of water in the bottom of the roasting pan, then roast at 350F in a conventional oven or 325F in a convection oven, until the turkey is done (165F on a meat thermometer). Let it sit 15 minutes before slicing.
For gravy, dump a goodly handful of ice cubes in the pan drippings, stir to collect the fat, and scoop the fat and ice out of the pan. Add 1 chicken bouillon cube and 1/2 cup water, and heat to a simmer. Mix 1/2 cup cold water with 2 tbsp cornstarch, whisk until smooth, and whisk into the pan drippings. Add a bit more water, if the gravy is too thick.
Here's how I served it:
Hope you all have a great weekend!
