    Make sure to purchase a fresh turkey breast for this, the stuffing may be prepared hours or even a day in advance and any remaining stuffing can be baked separately in a dish (see directions).

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 large turkey breast (preferably bone-in about 6-7 pounds)
    • 14 -15 ounces pork sausage
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2 1/4 cups coarse dry breadcrumbs (do not use fine bread crumbs)
    • 3/4 cup pecans, chopped
    • 3/4-1 cup dried apricot, chopped
    • 1/4 cup melted butter
    • 1/3 cup chicken broth
    • 2 stalks celery, chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage (crush between fingers, can use more to taste)
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Set oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Prepare and butter a casserole dish just large enough to hold the breast.
    3. 3
      Crumble the sausage slightly,and brown in a skillet over medium heat with onion; drain any fat then place in a bowl.
    4. 4
      Combine the pork sausage with next 8 ingredients, then season with salt and pepper to taste; mix well to combine.
    5. 5
      Gently loosen the skin from turkey in the neck area to make a large "pocket" to stuff.
    6. 6
      Stuff in as much stuffing as you can with sausage mixture thensecure with toothpicks.
    7. 7
      Place the remaining sausage (if any) into a small baking dish, and during the last 30 minutes of the turkey breast baking time, bake the remaining stuffing for about 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.
    8. 8
      To cook the turkey breast: place the breast skin-side up on a rack in roasting pan.
    9. 9
      Brush with melted butter, and season with salt and pepper.
    10. 10
      Bake for about 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reaches 170 degrees F (I like to remove a little sooner as the temperature will rise after removing from the oven).
    11. 11
      Let stand for 15-20 minutes before slicing.

      This was sooooo good Kittencal! I'm so glad I found this recipe - it was a huge hit with our family and friends! Everyone was raving. And you're right, the stuffing is wonderful, I will make it again! (I did add some fresh garlic.) I had 3 x 4lb turkey breasts, which cooked to 165f and then tented with foil for about 25 minutes - led to very moist but not undercooked turkey! I seasoned the turkey skin with salt and pepper and some dried sage too. Really, really good! Thank you!
