Herb Crusted Boneless Turkey Breast

Lately I have been “living” in the beautiful new cookbook, A Kitchen In France, written by Mimi Thorisson.
The recipes sound delicious and fresh and the photography of her farmhouse and the French countryside are just breathtaking. I’m learning that in French cooking, many fresh herbs and ingredients are used. Each recipe looks hearty and healthy. In France the Butcher and the Fishmonger are held in high regard, as they use their artistry to prepare items to be roasted, and sautéed.

Mimi prepares a whole roasted chicken with creme fresh and herbs…it looks absolutely delicious!

Here in the States, with Thanksgiving on its way, many of us will be preparing a fresh turkey.  For those who have never roasted an entire bird, it can sound overwhelming.

It’s easy to prepare, cook and carve, from start to finish!

This turkey breast could also be served alongside the whole turkey if you are having a large crowd that enjoys light meat. Continue reading
