Honey-Apple Turkey Breast Recipe

Honey-Apple Turkey Breast Recipe

I found this recipe in a diabetics’ cookbook. We really like the honey flavor. The sweetness comes through when I use the leftovers in casseroles and soups, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 2 hours + standing YIELD:12-14 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup thawed apple juice concentrate
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (6 to 7 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a small saucepan, combine apple juice concentrate, honey and mustard. Cook over low heat 2-3 minutes or just until blended, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Place turkey breast on a rack in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan; pour honey mixture over the top.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 170°, basting with pan juices every 30 minutes. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover and let stand 15 minutes before carving. Yield: 12-14 servings.
