“Turkey is flavored with fragrant herbs and roasted alongside potatoes, carrots and onions. Leftovers—which can be refrigerated or frozen—are perfect for sandwiches or soups!”


    • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
    • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 2¾ to 3¼-pound turkey breast portion with bone, skin removed
    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 3 cups tiny red potatoes, quartered (about 1 pound)
    • 2 cups baby carrots with tops trimmed and halved lengthwise (about 8 ounces)
    • 2 cups white and/or red pearl onions trimmed and halved (about 8 ounces)
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine parsley, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Set aside 1 tablespoon of the herb mixture.
  • 2 Place turkey breast portion, bone side down, on a roasting rack in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the remaining herb mixture evenly over turkey breast portion; rub in with your fingers. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine potatoes, carrots, and pearl onions; add the reserved 1 tablespoon herb mixture and the olive oil and toss until vegetables are coated. Arrange vegetables around turkey in roasting pan.
  • 4 Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Roast for 1- ¼ to 1- ½ hours more or until juices run clear, turkey is no longer pink (170°F), and vegetables are tender, stirring vegetables once.
  • 5 Transfer turkey to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before carving. Trim meat from bone. Serve turkey with the vegetables (see Tip).
  • Storage: Place any leftover cooked turkey and vegetables in an airtight container. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
