Fall comfort food gets a delicious lift in this recipe. A sweet, toasty compote (simply apple and shallot cooked in brown butter) balances our savory roasted turkey breast. On the side, we’re tossing warm grains with endive—first cooked with a bit of honey and lemon to brighten its mildly bitter flavor.

Sear & roast the turkey:
1 Sear & roast the turkey:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Line a sheet pan with foil. Remove and discard the netting from the turkey; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned turkey, skin side down. Cook 4 to 6 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove, transfer to the sheet pan, skin side up. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 165ºF.) Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes.
