Turkey is synonymous with the American Thanksgiving holiday, but its versatility makes it a year-round favorite. The turkey breast packs all of the white meat that people love on Thanksgiving day, but without the mass of a whole roast or the fuss of preparing a large meal. Boneless turkey breasts cook relatively quickly in your oven, but cooks debate whether to cover the pan or leave it uncovered when roasting. There is no right or wrong answer, but there are two different preparation methods.

Cooking Turkey Breast Down
This is Emeril's recipe off the Food Network site. I wanted to spread around the goodness. Just a heads up that some of the other Food Network reviewers felt the salt content was a little high.

Chef Emeril Lagasse Shared 4 Recipes That Are Perfect For Fall
He was a piano student at the University of Cincinnati, Conservatory of Music and for the four years he was in school, Dan would drive up and visit us for Thanksgiving weekend. His visits also gave me a great excuse to cook up a Day-After-Thanksgiving-Meal that would generate the perfect amount of leftovers to see us through the weekend. A whole breast, on the other hand, would be perfect.
Place turkey breast skin-side down on a cutting surface. Make a cut down the center from top to bottom, taking care to not cut all the way through. Butterfly by making a horizontal cut in each half, again taking care not to cut all the way through; open like a book. Cover with plastic wrap; pound meat to a half-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.
