MAPLE GLAZED TURKEY
Adapted from $5 Dinner Meals for use in TFK All-in-One Cooker
4 lb. turkey breast, with bone
4 onions, halved
6 garlic cloves, smashed
6 rosemary stalks, divided
Salt and pepper
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups balsamic vinegar
2 cup maple syrup
Place the turkey breast in All-in-One insert in order to easily season with salt and pepper, inside and outside. Place 2 onion halves, 2 garlic cloves, 1 stalk of rosemary inside the breast cavity. Place the other onion halves, garlic, 2 rosemary stalks around the turkey breast. Pour in the 2 cups of chicken stock. (Stock is added since the turkey breast will not release as much liquid as a whole turkey will. )
All in One Cooking Times: For a 4 lb. turkey breast, cook on a chicken setting for approximately 25 minutes. For a 6.5 lb. turkey breast, cook on a chicken setting for approximately 30 minutes. To ensure it is finished use a meat thermometer to ensure internal temperature read 165° F.
Once the turkey is started cooking, begin making the glaze. Reduce the liquids.; vinegar and maple syrup in a small saucepan, add the chopped rosemary leaves. Simmer over a medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring often.
Adding the Glaze: Once the turkey is done, carefully move the turkey breast into a 7-quart pan. Use a baster to cover the turkey breast with the reduction. Turn the stove onto a medium-low heat and cook for 5 minutes or longer depending on how you want the outside to appear. You may want to rotate the turkey breast in order to get an even coloring.
My name is Stephanie Uden and I have a unique history with TFK. I started as a customer who came to a cooking show like all of you have. My fiancé and I truly enjoyed the show, as we met some great people and learned some great tips. Ultimately, we decided that the TFK way of cooking was for us as we both live busy lives. Soon after we attended a show, back in July 2014, I started working for TFK as a Wellness Consult-
ant and have since become a Presenter. I truly love my cookware and the company! If I could give one piece of advice to customers it would be to not be afraid to try new recipes, tweaking them based on the taste preferences of your family and abilities of your cookware!
