## Bone In Turkey Breast Cooking Time Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cooking time for a bone-in turkey breast.

T = (W * r) + a

Variables:

- T is the total cooking time (minutes)
- W is the weight of the turkey breast (pounds)
- r is the rate of cooking (minutes per pound)
- a is the adjustment time (minutes) for oven preheating and resting the turkey after cooking

To calculate the cooking time for a bone-in turkey breast, multiply the weight of the turkey breast by the rate of cooking. Then, add the adjustment time for oven preheating and resting the turkey after cooking.

## What is a Bone In Turkey Breast Cooking Time?

A bone-in turkey breast requires a longer cooking time compared to a boneless one due to the bone’s insulating effect. The general rule of thumb is to cook it for about 20 minutes per pound at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, a six-pound bone-in turkey breast would take about two hours to cook. However, the most accurate way to determine if it’s done is by using a meat thermometer, which should read 165 degrees Fahrenheit in the thickest part of the breast.

## How to Calculate Bone In Turkey Breast Cooking Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bone In Turkey Breast Cooking Time.

- First, determine the weight of the turkey breast (W) in pounds.
- Next, determine the rate of cooking (r) in minutes per pound.
- Next, determine the adjustment time (a) in minutes for oven preheating and resting the turkey after cooking.
- Finally, calculate the total cooking time (T) using the formula T = (W * r) + a.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with a timer or cooking guidelines.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Weight of the turkey breast (W) = 8 pounds

Rate of cooking (r) = 15 minutes per pound

Adjustment time (a) = 30 minutes
