Method

Preheat oven to 325°F.

In a small bowl, combine sage, rosemary, salt and pepper.

Brush turkey breast all over with butter.

Loosen skin over breast meat with your fingers and work a little of the herb mixture underneath; smooth skin back in place.

Sprinkle remaining herb mixture all over turkey.

Cut a 2 1/2-foot-long piece of 15-inch-wide parchment paper.

Place turkey breast in the middle of the paper.

Fold the sheet over turkey and pleat the top to seal.

With a stapler, staple the top and sides of the paper closed to completely enclose turkey.

Place on a rack set in a roasting pan and roast for 1 1/4 hours. Let rest for 15 minutes, then carve and serve.
