One of our families favorite holidays is Thanksgiving, of course we love spending time with the family but we also look forward to enjoying Turkey and all the fixins’. I typically only think of cooking turkey just on Thanksgiving. After almost 25 years of marriage and countless meals, it wasn’t until I read Amy’s book, The Good Life for Less, that I realized turkey can be cooked, sliced and used for lunch meat.
Why did it take me so long to realize that? I really have no idea, but the good news is, I discovered it and I’m here to share the recipe for Oven Roasted Turkey Breast with you all!
While we love Turkey at dinner time, we are always looking for a delicious, healthy lunch option as well. Not only is this Oven Roasted Turkey Breast super easy, but also stretches your budget.
A simple sprinkle of seasonings that you probably already have in your cupboard, and into the oven it goes. We bought the boneless Turkey Breast at Walmart, they have several different brands to choose from as well as some that are already seasoned.
We let the turkey rest about 20 minutes, and then Doug sliced it thinly. Of course, he had to remind me that the meat slicer we saw at Sam’s Club would have been perfect for slicing this Turkey Breast, had I let him buy it. You can cook this Turkey Breast right along with your other dinner, or roast it in the evening, place in the fridge overnight and slice in the morning.
Then it was time to build the sandwich, a layer of Hellmann’s with Olive Oil, Baby Spinach leaves and Oven Roasted Turkey Breast piled high on good Rye Bread. Add some orange slices and you have a great, healthy lunch to enjoy at home or pack in your lunchbox for the office.
