Roasted Turkey and Gravy

Roasted Turkey and Gravy

Sometimes roasting a whole turkey just isn’t an option. Perhaps your oven is too small, or maybe you won’t be feeding a large crowd this year. We’re of the mind that a whole bird isn’t always necessary and chose instead to prepare just the breast and the leg.

Of course, we couldn’t skip out on the gravy or a great glaze to give our turkey that gorgeous golden-brown color. We recommend marinating the turkey pieces a day in advance for an extra flavor punch. 

Add a couple of great sides and some good company for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner


INGREDIENTS (6-8 servings) 

  • ½ a turkey breast (about 3.3 lb.)
  • 1 turkey leg
  • 2 tbsp. mustard
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • Olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 3-4 carrots
  • 2-3 onions
  • 200-300 ml white wine

For the glaze
  • 1 cube butter
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • Juice of 1 grapefruit 

For the gravy
  • Fat drippings from turkey
  • 200-300 ml chicken or turkey broth
  • 2 tsp. cornflour
  • Water



  • Marinate the turkey in the mustard, honey, garlic and olive oil one day in advance. Store in VacSy container and refrigerate
  • Place the meat over the vegetables, season with pepper and add the white wine 
  • Cover the griller with lid or aluminum foil and bake at 160°C for about an hour and a half, then turn the temperature up to 180°C and cook for an additional 45 minutes
  • At this point, make the glaze. Add the butter, honey and grapefruit juice to a Zepter Z-1620-SC saucepot and cook until syrupy (this should only take a few minutes)
  • After the turkey has cooked at 180°C for 45 minutes, drain the fat from the bottom of the griller into a bowl and coat the outside of the turkey in the glaze
  • Raise the temperature to 200°C
  • Keep adding the glaze at 5-minute intervals until desired golden-brown color is achieved. Once you are satisfied with the color, remove from oven and let rest  
  • Lastly, make the gravy. Combine the turkey drippings with the broth, cornflour and water, as needed. Cook on the induction plate at low heat 90°C, mixing constantly until completely combined
  • Slice and arrange the turkey on Zepter Royal Gold Bordeaux porcelain 
  • Serve the gravy in Zepter Royal Gold Bordeaux gravy boat 

Tip: Remember, the gravy will additionally thicken as it cools. Give it a thinner consistency than desired while cooking for optimal results.
