Oven Roasted Turkey Breast

Sometimes, celebrating the holidays means gathering only your spouse and pets around the dinner table. For us, Thanksgiving is always just the two of us, which is why we made an Oven Roasted Turkey Breast recipe. There is no way we can polish off a twelve pound turkey, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share in the deliciousness.
