Fresh Roasted Turkey Breast

There is nothing I love more than a turkey breast sandwich. But the sliced turkey you get at the deli or prepackaged is often times a gelatinous blob of pressed turkey parts, fillers, artificial flavors and preservatives, water and salt.

If you like sliced turkey but hate deli style meats, try roasting your own turkey breast. You can find boneless turkey breasts at the grocery store for a fraction of the price of deli turkey with no added flavors or preservatives. Season with a little salt and pepper, then bake until the skin is crispy and you have lunches and dinners for the whole week.

Fresh Roasted Turkey Breast

  • 2 lb. Turkey Breast
  • 1 tbsp. Veg Oil
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Pepper
  • Pre heat the oven to 450 F. Place the turkey breast on a baking sheet, cover with oil and season with the salt and pepper. Bake the turkey for 30-40 minutes or until it reaches 165 F in the center of the breast. Remove the turkey from the oven and cover with foil for 10 minutes. Slice the turkey at an angle, very thin for sandwiches or chunks for salads.

    You can season with a variety of spices and flavors. Try these flavor combinations.

    Rosemary, Garlic and Lemon - Old Bay - Dry BBQ Rubs - Jamaican Jerk - Teriyaki - Indian Curry - Southwest Taco - French Herbs - Roasted Tomato and Basil - Orange Marmalade
