Maple-Butter Glazed Roasted Turkey Breast
A delicious, tender roasted turkey breast with a sticky maple glaze.
Hiya friends! Super quick hello today. My sister and her husband and little guy Henry arrived yesterday afternoon to join us for Easter weekend. I’ve spent the morning prying my 3- and 5-year-old apart and trying unsuccessfully to keep the volume to a dull roar for baby Henry to nap. Now am abandoning the idea of washing my hair and am chucking everyone in the SUV to just get. them. out. of. the. house.
I have a strong feeling this car ride is going to end in french fries and milkshakes.
Here’s a quick and easy turkey roast recipe for you with a yummy, sticky maple-butter glaze. I did the recipe for a Butterball collaboration on Instagram, so the turkey pictured is one of their frozen turkey breast roasts. Instructions below are for fresh turkey breast or a frozen roast.
The glaze is a simple 3-ingredient recipe, perfect for turkey, ham, bone-in chicken pieces, or even salmon. If you’re a roast-beef-for-Easter family, I also shared a quick prime rib roast recipe on instagram.

- 1.5 kg 3.3 lbs boneless or bone-in turkey breast
- 1 tbsp oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp grainy mustard
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Place turkey breast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes.
- Combine maple syrup, butter and mustard in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until butter is melted and mixture thickens slightly. Brush the maple glaze over turkey and continue cooking until meat thermometer reads 160°F (about 10 more minutes for boneless, 25 more minutes for bone-in). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
- Add ¼ cup of water to remaining glaze and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes or until syrupy again and serve drizzled over turkey.
