Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp butter softened
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, sage and parsley) minced
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1.5kg turkey breast boneless, skin-on
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • parsley for garnish

Method

  • To make the garlic herb butter, melt a tablespoon of butter in a medium pan, add 6 cloves of minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Move the garlic to a medium bowl and add another 4 tablespoons of softened butter, fresh herbs, fresh lemon zest and salt. Combine well.
  • Preparing Rolled Turkey: Lay turkey breast, skin side down, and season with salt and pepper. Rub garlic herb butter all over the underside of turkey and under the skin.
  • Apply a line of your favourite stuffing down the centre. Roll the turkey to form a tube and use toothpicks to hold it tight in place.
  • Using kitchen twine, tie around the turkey to keep it from opening up during roasting. Rub the remaining herb butter on top of the roll.

  • Preheat oven to 180˚C. Place in a roasting pan or a baking dish and bake for about 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes total.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, remove twine, and cut crosswise into slices. Place slices on a platter, and garnish with parsley.
