A few years ago I made a video and post on my retired site Orange Dragonfly Blog about how to make the best drunken turkey ever. Not gonna lie, some years he gets three! Example, if you click on an ingredient link and purchase anything from that site, I make a small commission, no matter what you purchase, at no cost to you. This is how I pay for this blog and make a living as a writer.
"Beer Can" Turkey Breast with BBQ Gravy | Martha Stewart
Looking for a smaller dish alternative to a whole turkey for Thanksgiving? I got you covered with this simple yet flavor-packed Oven Roasted Turkey Breast recipe! So what do you do if your family is small like mine , and a whole turkey is just too much food? The main issue with oven roasted turkey breast is the meat drying out during the cooking process , so that you end up with roasted turkey breast that tastes like cardboard. But not today, not with this recipe!
Easy to make, great for dinner, leftovers and sandwiches. Adapted for our 2-person household from larger recipes for larger families with larger appetites. Place turkey breast with skin side up into a roasting pan. Loosen skin with your fingers; brush half the butter mixture over the turkey breast and underneath the skin.
This recipe came from much interest in the whiskey sitting in my cabinet for much too long. I was sure that people kept it around for some reason. I tried a sip Decided my turkey might enjoy some too. Turns out the turkey liked it even better than I did!
