Stir together the butter and olive oil, generously brush the skin of the turkey. Heavily season with salt and pepper. Seal the bag tucking any ends that are sticking out under the turkey. Make sure the turkey bag does not touch the side of your oven or the heating elements. Cut 6½-inch slits in the top of the bag. Cook the turkey breast until the meat registers 165˚F on an instant-read thermometer.
