A holiday or Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without a roasted turkey, but for those who live alone or are simply two to feed why not pick up a turkey breast or thigh and cook slowly with salt, pepper and fresh rosemary. This way you fill your home with delicious home cooking, but are not saddled with leftover turkey for months. Now don’t get me wrong many times I will cook an organic turkey and carve it up, freeze some, enjoy some, and of course make turkey soup, but sometimes you just want a taste of turkey without the overwhelm when you are not getting together with family or a large gathering.

Ingredients

  • Turkey breast or thigh
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Place turkey in a roasting pan or glass dish
  2. Drizzle oil over turkey
  3. Separate rosemary from stem and sprinkle on turkey
  4. Add salt and pepper
  5. Bake turkey in a 350F approximately 25 minutes per pound
