Even the smallest turkey is too much for two, but I missed the taste of homemade turkey and stuffing. I tried this recipe with a boneless turkey breast and it was just perfect.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 16 slices white bread
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped, or more to taste
  • 1 ½ tablespoons poultry seasoning
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth, or as needed
  • 1 (2 pound) boneless turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Generously coat a 2 1/2-quart baking dish with butter. Place bread on baking sheets.
  2. 2 Toast bread in the preheated oven until golden brown, flipping halfway through cooking time, about 15 minutes total.
  3. 3 While bread is toasting, melt 2 tablespoons butter in olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and celery until soft and slightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. 4 Cube toast and put in a large mixing bowl with sauteed vegetables. Season with poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add enough chicken broth to mash mixture together and form a moist, but not wet stuffing. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  5. 5 Rinse turkey under cold water and pat dry. Lay turkey breast, skin-side up, on top on stuffing mixture. Slip cubes of butter under the skin and pour melted butter over top. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Tent with aluminum foil.
  6. 6 Bake in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours. Remove foil and continue to bake until turkey is no longer pink in the center, juices run clear, and skin browns, about 30 minutes more. Transfer turkey to a plate and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Chef's Notes

I used a Butterball(R) boneless turkey breast when I tried this. I also used a good quality chicken broth.
