Many of us fall into a rut and only make turkey during the holidays. I am not sure why — as it is a very affordable meat AND highly tasty! This recipe uses turkey breast and is a switch up on the traditional “Thanksgiving style”. I hope you find it as tasty as we do!
Herbs and garlic turkey breast
- 2 Tbsps olive oil
- 4 Minced garlic cloves
- 1 Tbsp white pepper
- 1 Tbsp oregano
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsps all purpose flour
- 1 Cup 2% milk
- 3 Thyme sprigs
- 8 Organic boneless turkey breasts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush olive oil onto the turkey breasts.
Saute garlic in a small saucepan and add in the white pepper and oregano.
Spread the mix all over the turkey breasts then place them in a baking dish and cover with foil.
Let cook for one hour until turkey breasts are tender and prepare the white sauce while turkey breasts bake.
In a small sauce pan add 1 tbsp of butter. Let butter sizzle then add in the flour. Stir quickly and slowly pour in the milk. Keep stirring until it thickens. Add in the chopped thyme. Turn off fire and cover with lid.
Pour white sauce onto a platter. Place turkey breasts on top of sauce. Garnish with extra thyme sprigs.
Serve and then rip into it like a monkey on a cupcake!
Tip: Bake turkey breasts with ¼ cup of bay leaves for additional herb taste.
