ROASTED TURKEY BREAST WITH GARLIC AND HERBS

once I’m feeding a crowd for the vacations, I make an entire roasted turkey. once I’m entertaining a smaller organization, I choose a roasted turkey breast as an alternative. that is the quality turkey breast I’ve ever had, it’s tender, flavorful and juicy no dry meat here.

i like a good roasted turkey, specifically around the holidays. That being said, now and again it’s just my own family of 5 and we don’t want to prepare dinner up an entire huge turkey. This roasted turkey breast is the suitable alternative – it’s fantastic flavorful, brief cooking, and festive for a vacation meal.
