How to make it

  • Place turkey breast in roasting pan.
  • Sprinkle with coarse salt, pepper, the oregano, the ginger, and the sage.
  • Roast at 350*F for 45 minutes, then add the vegetables…
  • ===============================
  • Veggie prep:
  • Cut all except the sweet potato coarsely.
  • The potato dish is cooked separately, roasted.
  • Continue roasting turkey breast another 45 min, or until the veggies are tender, and the turkey is golden brown.
  • ===============================
  • The sweet potato:
  • Cut into ‘potato steaks’ as illustrated…
  • Sprinkle with a little coarse salt, and olive oil
  • Roast in a ceramic roasting pan or casserole dish, covered, until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  • ===============================
  • Do the flambe:
  • *******CAUTION*******
  • When lit, the flame will reach up nearly 2 feet.
  • I STRONGLY recommend doing the flambé part outside, as no heat is required underneath the pan, and the fire risk is too great when done indoors.
  • Combine with the sweet potatoes:
  • The orange juice
  • The Southern Comfort
  • Take dish outside, and set aflame.
  • STAND WELL BACK while the alcohol burns off.
  • After the flame goes out, you’re safe to bring it back inside.
  • Use oven mitts, as the dish will be VERY hot!
  • Because no alcohol remains, this dish is quite safe for children to consume.
  • Served with a side salad, this dish is guaranteed to delight you, your family, and any dinner guest!
  • ENJOY! :+D
  • NOTE:
  • Preparing this today, and pictures will follow from start to finish. Please bear with me until I get all piccies done! :+D

    So what you made a mistake? At least you had the guts to admit it, and for that alone, you deserve another five.
    I have lots of turkeys here, and plan to put this recipe to good use. Thanks.

    chefelaine your recipe still deserves a five.. it sounds amazing... what if you poured the orange juice on just before the flames die down... I have a Greek Cheese recipe that you put the flames out by squeezing lemon juice over them... it heats the juice...that might give you the flames and the juice...??

    FAILURE TO IGNITE ... and it was my own fault. :+C

    I did this recipe up spur-of-the-moment, and failed to take into consideration that the orange juice would WEAKEN the alcohol.... as a result, it did NOT ignite.
    My apologies for my stupidity; I should have known better, having done flambes previously.

    The TASTE of the Southern Comfort was definitely in the sweet spuds, but I cannot honestly feel this recipe deserves a five. I screwed it up, and I apologize.

    I certainly LEARNED something from this mistake, though, thank God.

    My sincerest apologies to everyone.
