Maple and Cider Turkey Breast


1 (6 to 8 - lb) BONE-IN TURKEY BREAST, fresh or thawed if frozen

1 tbsp canola oil

1 tbsp grainy country-style mustard

Salt and freshly ground black pepper To taste

1 Medium apple, cored and thinly sliced (unpeeled)

1/4 c maple syrup

2 tbsp cider vinegar

Worcestershire sauce Dash



Pat breast dry with paper towels.

In small bowl, mix oil and mustard; rub over breast and under skin from neck end. Do not detach skin at base. Season with salt and pepper. Slide apple slices between skin and meat.

Place breast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until a food thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast registers 165 degrees F.

Meanwhile, combine syrup, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce.

During last 20 minutes of roasting, baste breast with mixture. If skin is browning too quickly, tent with foil.

Remove breast to serving platter and let rest 10 to 15 minutes before carving.

TIP: For more flavorful pan juices, add additional sliced apple, a sliced onion and 1/2 cup apple juice to roasting pan with turkey.

Serve with sweet potatoes and fruit chutney. Garnish with fresh sage.
