  • Summary

    Chef Sean Brock created this dish using quail, but the technique pairs equally well with bone-in turkey breast, creating a surprisingly juicy version of a much-maligned cut. Searing a turkey breast on the stovetop crisps the skin beautifully, while basting with thyme- and garlic-scented duck fat enriches the lean meat. Green onions stand in for the green garlic for a silky, fresh sauce that's a welcome departure from classic gravy. Be sure to use homemade vegetable stock or a clear canned stock to preserve the brilliant green color. You can find duck fat from many gourmet shops, or online from D'Artagnan.

    Ingredients

    • 1 bone-in turkey breast
    • turkey breast half (about 4 1/2 pounds), preferably brined
    • Kosher salt
    • freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup duck fat
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 bunch thyme
    • 4 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
    • 1/2 pound green onions, trimmed and roughly chopped
    • 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable stock, preferably homemade
    • 2 teaspoons cream cheese, at room temperature
