Seasoned bread crumbs form an appealing brown crust on this turkey breast that tastes as good as it looks. We developed it for quick weeknight cooking, but it would make a fine holiday feast for a small group.    More Holiday Turkeys  

How to Make It

Step 1    

Heat the oven to 450°. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, sage, parsley, butter, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt.

Step 2    

Season the turkey breast with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Set the turkey breast in a roasting pan and then brush the top and the sides of the breast with the mustard. Pat the seasoned bread crumbs onto the mustard.

Step 3    

Roast the turkey for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375° and continue to roast the turkey breast until just done, 15 to 20 minutes longer. Transfer the turkey to a carving board and leave to rest in a warm spot for about 10 minutes. Cut the turkey into slices.

Chef's Notes

Test-Kitchen Tip Sometimes boneless turkey breasts come rolled and tied like a roast. For this preparation, you'll want to unroll the breast and put it flat in the roasting pan, thereby cutting the cooking time significantly.
