Any Way You Slice It is the theme for the week at I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC) so clearly that's a sign that I should make a turkey breast for dinner. There are only two of us at home these days, so a whole turkey would be too much. Sunny, our dog, might disagree.
|"Ahem," says the dog, eagerly waiting for turkey.|
The biggest challenge for me was removing the skin. I often remove the fattiest parts, but this was the first time I took off the whole skin and I was surprised by how much fat is under it all. I was worried that the turkey would come out quite dry. Instead, it came out flavorful and moist. I should mention that I have a kosher kitchen and that the turkey breast comes pre-soaked and salted. From the kosher point of view, that is done to remove any trace of blood from the meat. From a technique point of view, that may be known as brining the meat. This may account for some of the moistness.
I threw in some onions and potatoes to roast with the turkey and made cranberry sauce, as well. The recipe for the cranberry sauce is on the back of the Ocean Spray package or here. .
