Simple Roast Turkey Breast

Simple Roast Turkey Breast

This simple roast turkey breast is perfect for dinner, lunch meat, or salads. It’s easy to put together and practically cooks itself. You can roast the turkey on the weekend and have it for quick meals during the week. Just make as much as you need for a few days.

I often roast a chicken on the weekend to last for a few meals. Roasted turkey is a nice change. I kept this recipe simple − roasting the turkey with just duck fat, salt and pepper − so I could use it with different sauces. We had it in Greek lettuce wraps with baba ganoush, tomatoes and cucumbers yesterday. And today, I made a salad with turkey, peaches and smoky balsamic dressing over greens from our CSA.

The secret to this turkey recipe is roasting the turkey breast with the skin and bones. This helps keep the meat moist. You can add your favorite herbs if you like. Or season each piece with a different spice mix. However you make it, this simple roast turkey breast is a great make-ahead meal.

    I bought a Turkey Roast a few weeks ago. Because the weather has been hot, I cooked it in a slow cooker. I sprinkled liquid smoke on it to have a smoked flavor. This winter, when turning on the oven may be needed, I’ll try this recipe.
