COOK TIME
2 Hr 30 Min

Fancy up that holiday bird by bathing it in champagne. It's a simple but fancy way out of the "plain old roasted turkey" rut!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (7-pound) bone-in turkey breast
  • 1/2 pound red seedless grapes, stemmed and cut in half (about 1-1/2 cups), divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle champagne (see Options)
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.
     
  2. Place turkey in pan and spoon 1 cup grape halves into neck cavity. Season turkey all over with salt and pepper. Pour champagne into pan around turkey.
     
  3. Roast turkey for 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 hours, or until no pink remains and juices run clear, basting every 30 minutes with pan juices. If turkey begins to get too browned, cover loosely with aluminum foil.
     
  4. In a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth, cornstarch, and pan drippings with fat removed; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup grape halves and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through.
     
  5. Carve turkey and serve with champagne-grape sauce.
Options

If you'd rather, you can use nonalcoholic sparkling grape or apple juice, or even apple cider, instead of champagne. It all works to make this a winning change-of-pace roasted turkey your gang will love!

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
