Roast Turkey Breast is an easy way to enjoy turkey without having to roast a whole bird. We love Thanksgiving around here, and turkey is always the star of the show.

Although turkey is a popular meal around the holidays, turkey breast makes a great meal any time of the year! You can adjust the seasonings depending on the type of meal you're making and cook the meat in the oven or slow cooker. Roasting the turkey breast will give it browned, crispy skin, while slow-cooking the turkey will give you a flavorful hands-off meal. Then, spread it over the turkey breast.
