  • Summary

    Dressed with a little practicality, this diminutive cut is no less iconic than a whole turkey. For the best flavor and texture, brine your turkey breast for six hours -- no more, no less. The vegetables should all be cut to the same size to ensure even cooking.

    Ingredients

    • 4 quarts (16 cups) cold water
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 turkey breast (6 to 7 pounds), bone in, skin on, excess fat trimmed
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 1/2 ounces (5 tablespoons) unsalted butter, 4 tablespoons softened, 1 tablespoon melted
    • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
    • 4 medium shallots, halved
    • 4 medium carrots, 1 inch green top attached, halved lengthwise
    • 4 small turnips, peeled and halved
    • 1 1/2 pounds assorted small potatoes, scrubbed, halved or quartered
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
