Recipe by Lvs2Cook

A little different from most roast turkey recipes -- a great recipe for any special occasion. If you don't have reisling wine, any good white wine can be used.

I made this recipe for Thankgiving this year (2009) and it was delicious. The turkey was so moist. It was a big hit. I made it exactly like the recipe, with no changes. Thank you!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle turkey breast evenly with salt and pepper.
  2. Stir together butter, rosemary, and sage. Loosen skin from turkey without detaching it; spread butter mixture under skin. Arrange one-fourth of orange and lemon slices over butter mixture. Gently pull skin over fruit. Coat with cooking spray. Place turkey in an aluminum foil-lined baking pan coated with cooking spray. Place onion and remaining orange and lemon slices in pan. Drizzle with wine.
  3. Bake at 325° for 2 hours and 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 170°, basting every 30 minutes.
  4. Cover loosely with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray to prevent excessive browning after 1 hour and 30 minutes, if necessary.
