Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Turkey Breast
Cruising during Thanksgiving? You can skip the full bird this year, too much work, too much heat in the kitchen. Mix it up and try this twist on a turkey: a Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Turkey Breast.
You certainly don’t have to miss out on the feast! If you happen to be with a few more people than usual, you can whip up a meal that all will be grateful for.
2 Tbsp. butter softened
½ Tbsp. lemon zest
½ tsp. sage
1 Tbsp. garlic, crushed
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper
3-4 lb. skinless turkey breast
8 slices prosciutto
Preheat oven to 400 degrees (or cook in a foil pan on a covered grill). Mix butter, lemon, sage, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl to combine into a paste. Place turkey in baking pan and rub the paste on turkey breast. Lay each slice of prosciutto across the top of turkey breast, overlapping until covered. Bake for 50-60 minutes until juices run clear when tested with a skewer. Rest turkey 15 minutes before carving.
