INGREDIENTS

1.9kg Hogan's Farm Boneless Turkey Breast
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon minced garlic

  2. Place the butter, garlic, sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley and salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Loosen the skin of the turkey breast. Spread half of the butter underneath the skin of the turkey, and the other half of the butter on top of the turkey breast.
  4. Place the turkey in the baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until skin has just started to brown.
