    Simply delicious! I learned this recipe from a Martha Stewart podcast, and rather than stuff the baste under the skin, I made a basting sauce with a full quarter cup of butter and a cup of dry champagne.

    I've made this two Christmases in a row and everyone loves it. However, the ingredient list calls for two TABLESPOONS of salt and the instruction say two TEASPOONS. Make sure you use the lesser amount when you make this.

    I made this Xmas day for 18 people (1st time to entertain for that many people, and 1st time to ever serve turkey). I was so nervous but it was the best meal I've ever served. My husband and I don't even care for turkey and it is one of our favorite entrees now. BTW I bought the turkey Xmas Eve and it was on SALE 79 cents/lb. YES.

    HI MARTHA! WE MADE THE ABOVE RECIPE AND LOVED IT. USED THE LESSER AMOUNT OF SALT, SINCE MY COMMON SENSE TELLS ME: YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD MORE BUT NEVER TAKE AWAY. LOVED IT SO MUCH, I HAVE GOTTEN ANOTHER TURKEY BREAST WILL SOON BE PUTTING IT IN THE OVEN. THANKS

    MMSRJS Your advice is noted and I strongly advise you to follow it! The ingrediant list states TABLESPOONS and the directions state TEASPOONS. Martha maybe you should weigh in?

    I am with Michelles - the ingrediant list clearly says 2 TBS and the directions clearly say 1 TSP under the skin and the remaining TSP on top. Which is it TBS or TSP? Makes a very big difference.

    I cooked this on Thanksgiving and my family thought that it was the best turkey I have ever made. I was afraid that a breast would be too dry, but it wasn't. It was flavorful and extremely moist. The skin was wonderfully golden and crisp. The extradinary flavor was delicately infused throughout the breast. It was absolutely the best turkey I have ever eaten!
