Romano Basil Turkey Breast
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Grill: 1-1/2 hours + standing
We enjoyed this grilled turkey breast. Romano and basil gave it a notable flavor. We did not have any issues with the topping separating.
This was the best turkey breast I've ever eaten. The one I bought was about 6 1/2 lbs so I grilled it for about 2 hours, 45 mins. I used 2 long metal skewers to secure the turkey skin, which worked great and made it easy to maneuver. I also cut off the lemon rind when slicing so it basically broke into small pieces which worked out well when mixed with the other ingredients. Also, I made sure to rest it for the full 10 mins and removed half of the breast in one piece and sliced crosswise so I wouldn't lose the delicious crusty skin. Definitely a keeper!
I haven't made this yet. Wondering how this would do in a roster oven.
This recipe sounds good, but in reality the flavors of the basil and romano don't penetrate the meat, the the flavor is all just in the crust, and when I sliced my roast the basil & romano mixture fell off, didn't present like the picture.
