  • Summary

    The Thanksgiving turkey conundrum: How to keep the breast meat from drying out while the dark meat finishes cooking? By roasting a bone-in turkey breast by itself, we've eliminated the stress and cut the cooking time by several hours. What you get is perfectly moist, tender white meat with crisp, salty skin—all in under an hour. If you don't have time to make the gravy, skip it. This succulent bird doesn't need it.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
    • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
    • 1/2 cup chicken stock
    • 4 cups stale corn bread, crumbled into large pieces
    • 2 large eggs, beaten
    • One 3 1/2- to 4-pound bone-in turkey breast, halved at the breast bone (see Tips, below)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    • One 1 1/2-ounce container veal or chicken demi-glace
    • 1 tablespoon brandy
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
