Christmas is almost here. I am not gone count the days because I am sure you already are doing that. This recipe was adapted after a recipe I found on the internet. When you send your husband to buy meat and he comes back with a turkey it is a problem, for me. I browsed for some turkey recipes on the web and I found one that I liked the way it looked but I discovered I was missing some ingredients, so I improvised.
In the end I love it so it will be on my Christmas table. With mash potatoes and some pickles or salad will be a healthy alternative to our traditional Christmas recipe.
I am not happy with the photos because light was bad. It was snowing outside and the interior light is not good for photos. But, I love the recipe and I want to share it with you. I will make it again and make better photos.
- 1 kg turkey breast
- Red Chili Peppers
- 50 g butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 5-6 garlic cloves cut in small slices
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 100 ml beer
- 50g bacon
- 1 orange
Clean the turkey breast. In a bowl, mix the condiments with the garlic, olive oil and honey. Brush a roasting pan with butter. Take the condiments mix and brush the turkey all over and then put it in the pan. Add the bacon on top and on the side. Brush the bacon with the condiments mix too. When you are done add the beer. In the beer add the slices of the orange.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake the turkey in the oven at medium for 1 hour. From time to time, use a spoon and add the beer sauce all over the turkey.
Take the foil out and leave it in the oven for another 20 – 30 minutes or until is done. Depending on the size of the breast the baking time varies.
