I saw a half turkey breast in Trader Joe's awhile back and it put me in the mood for a full blown turkey dinner. The great thing about a half turkey breast is that it doesn't take long to cook and you don't have massive amounts of leftovers.
I combined a lot of herbs, some honey, olive oil, and Dijon mustard for a marinade and let the turkey soak in those flavors overnight. I have prepared a turkey breast in the crock pot before, but this time I wanted a crispy browned exterior so I decided to bake it. I got just what I wanted, juicy white meat on the inside with a golden exterior.
You can't have turkey without mashed potatoes so check out my recipe for Red-skin Herbed Mashed Potatoes and Balsamic Green Beans with Caramelized Onions would also make a great side. If you haven't had a chance to make my Oven Roasted Turkey Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette, it's a must with the leftovers.
