My daughter and I are going to the University Club for Thanksgiving (and Christmas Day). Doing and entire turkey-with-trimmings is too much trouble for just two people.

For those not entertaining a horde, a butterball frozen breast with gravy packet can be cooked to heavenly delight in an InstantPot.

Instant Pot Turkey Breast
Ingredients:
  • 4 lbs. turkey breast boneless, thawed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp tarragon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
For Gravy
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup half and half
Instructions
Drizzle the tbsp of olive oil all over the turkey breast and rub it in. I usually do this so that the spices stick to the turkey breast. Rub the turkey well with the smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, tarragon, salt, and pepper. Finish with the minced garlic.
Turn the Instant Pot to the high sauté setting. Add the 2 tbsp butter and oil and once your instant pot reaches the desired temperature add the turkey breast. Sear the turkey breast on all sides. Transfer the breast to a plate.
Add the Instant Pot's wire rack, then place the turkey on top. Set the Instant Pot on Pressure Cook High and set the timer to 25 minutes.
Once the Instant Pot cycle is complete, wait until the natural release cycle is complete, should take about 10 to 15 minutes.. Transfer the breast to a cutting board, cover completely with aluminum foil and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting into it. Make sure to remove the butcher twine before slicing it. If crispier skin is desired, broil it in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes.
For the Gravy
Turn the Instant Pot to the high sauté setting (don't discard the turkey drippings). Melt the butter. Whisk in the flour with the butter and cook for a couple minutes, stirring or whisking constantly, until the flour loses its raw smell.
Whisk in the chicken broth and cook and half and half and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until thickened. You can omit the half and half and just use 1 cup of chicken broth or turkey broth. I used half and half for a creamier gravy. Season with salt and pepper as preferred.
