I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was good and busy. I had a couple of baking orders to complete and briefly visited with friends.
Herb Butter Turkey Breast
This year I decided to cook my turkey breast in the air fryer. The air fryer turkey breast recipe I uaed called for a 4 and change pound turkey breast whixh I was able to find for under $10 at Target. I bought two turkey breasts. I coated the first breast with herb butter, a mixture of 2 room temperature sticks of butter, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, Creole seasoning, basil. oregano, and garlic powder. I cooked it on its side for 20 minutes then I flipped it over on the other side to cook for 30 minutes then checked it with the instant read digital thermometer to ensure the breast reached a cooked temperature of 150 degrees.
Turkey Breast Seasoned with Poultry Seasoning
For the second breast, I stuck closer to the original recipe and coated it with olive oil, Creole seasoning, salt, and a poultry seasoning rub. I followed the same process for cooking the turkey breast as shown above.
Both turkey breast were moist and delicious. I will definitely do this again. I am partial to seasoning the turkey breast with the herb butter as it gave it a richer flavor. It is amazing how a small turkey breast can make the whole house smell like a 20 pound bird.
