ROASTED TURKEY BREAST WITH GARLIC AND HERBS

Once I’m feeding a crowd for the holidays, I make an entire roasted turkey. when I’m pleasing a smaller organization, I opt for a roasted turkey breast instead. this is the high-quality turkey breast I’ve ever had, it’s soft, flavorful and juicy – no dry meat here.

I love a good roasted turkey, in particular across the holidays. That being stated, now and again it’s simply my circle of relatives of five and we don’t want to prepare dinner up a whole massive turkey. This roasted turkey breast is the proper option – it’s exquisite flavorful, quick cooking, and festive for a holiday meal.
