Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast with Leeks and Cornbread stuffing by Tyler Florence - food network

  • Level: Easy
  • Total: 1 hr 20 min
  • Prep: 30 min
  • Cook: 50 min
  • Yield: 10 to 12 servings


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Fill a large bowl with water and add the leeks, swish around with your hands to get the sand out from in between the layers. In a large saute pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon each of butter and olive oil. Add the leeks, sprinkle with the thyme, salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, turning every now and then, until the leeks are softened but not colored. Remove the leeks from heat to cool.
  3. In a large bowl combine the leeks, cornbread, and chicken stock and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Use a sharp, thin knife to cut down the length of the turkey cutting the breast parallel to the board, almost in half just stopping short of the outside edge. Open out the 2 halves as if you were opening a book. Now you've got a large piece of meat that will cook evenly and is thin enough to roll. Place 2 cups of the stuffing inside each of the breasts and then fold the turkey back over.
  5. Place the remaining stuffing in a small baking dish and cook alongside the turkey.
  6. Tie in 4 places with kitchen twine and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Heat the remaining tablespoon of butter and olive oil in a roasting pan over medium-high heat. Put the turkey in the roasting pan and sear all over. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast for about 25 minutes (internal temperature should reach 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer). Take the turkey out of the oven and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes, then cut crosswise into slices.

Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta by Giada De Laurentis Food Network

  • Level: Easy
  • Total: 30 min
  • Prep: 10 min
  • Cook: 20 min


  1. Partially cook the Brussels sprouts in a large pot of boiling salted water, about 4 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and saute until beginning to crisp, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts to the same skillet and saute until heated through and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the broth and simmer until the broth reduces just enough to coat the Brussels sprouts, about 3 minutes. Serve.

Good Eats Roast Turkey

  • Total: 9 hr 45 min
  • Prep: 15 min
  • Inactive: 7 hr
  • Cook: 2 hr 30 min
  • Yield: 10 to 12 servings

For the Brine:

For the Aromatics:

  1. Two to three days before roasting: Begin thawing the turkey in the refrigerator or in a cooler kept at 38 degrees F. 
  2. Combine the vegetable stock, salt, brown sugar, peppercorns, allspice berries, and candied ginger in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve solids and bring to a boil. Then remove the brine from the heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate. 
  3. The night before or early on the day you'd like to eat: Combine the brine, water and ice in the 5-gallon bucket. Place the thawed turkey (with innards removed) breast side down in brine. If necessary, weigh down the bird to ensure it is fully immersed, cover, and refrigerate or set in cool area for 8 to 16 hours, turning the bird once half way through brining.
  4. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Remove the bird from brine and rinse inside and out with cold water. Discard the brine. 
  5. Place the bird on roasting rack inside a half sheet pan and pat dry with paper towels. 
  6. Combine the apple, onion, cinnamon stick, and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Add steeped aromatics to the turkey's cavity along with the rosemary and sage. Tuck the wings underneath the bird and coat the skin liberally with canola oil. 
  7. Roast the turkey on lowest level of the oven at 500 degrees F for 30 minutes. Insert a probe thermometer into thickest part of the breast and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Set the thermometer alarm (if available) to 161 degrees F. A 14 to 16 pound bird should require a total of 2 to 2 1/2 hours of roasting. Let the turkey rest, loosely covered with foil or a large mixing bowl for 15 minutes before carving.
