Hello My Loves,
I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet, but what is a lady supposed to do when craving Thanksgiving Dinner? That’s right! Cook a smaller version to get me through until Thanksgiving.
Instead of a whole turkey, I cooked a fresh turkey breast as I would cook a whole fresh turkey for our Thanksgiving Dinner. I rubbed olive oil/butter, fresh garlic, rosemary, lemon, salt and pepper all over the breast (even under the skin to give it as much seasoning) to make sure it tasted just like a Thanksgiving turkey.
With all the flavorful drippings from the turkey pan, I made my homemade gravy! So good and it really wouldn’t be complete if I had no gravy!
I wanted to keep it simple with the sides as well, so I roasted a few celebration blend potatoes with garlic and rosemary (that I had extra from my turkey breast). Sauteed fresh cabbage and onions together. I absolutely enjoy these veggies paired together.
This is an easy meal to cook anytime you have a craving for a Thanksgiving Dinner.
With Love, Catherine
P.S. Make sure you let your turkey come to room temperature, so it will cook evenly perfect for you!
