Ingredients

  • 1 turkey breast (skinless and boneless)(My turkey breast was about 4 pounds).
  • 10 slices Bacon

Instructions

  1. If brining the turkey, this is the first step. In a non-reactive container or brining bag, add 1/2 cup kosher salt, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 quarts of water, and a handful of peppercorns. Stir the brine mixture and add the turkey breast. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to roast.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. You'll need a roasting pan with a metal rack.

  3. Place the turkey breast on a cutting board. I purchased a turkey breast with skin, so I removed the skin.

  4. Layer the slices of bacon all over the turkey breast. Cut the bacon pieces for the ends. Tuck the bacon slices under the turkey.

  5. Place the turkey on the roasting pan with a metal rack. Roast until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. The roasting time will depend on the size of your turkey. My turkey breast took about 90 minutes.

  6. Take the turkey breast out of the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. I place a piece of aluminum foil over my turkey breast as it is resting.

  7. Slice and serve your turkey breast with your favorite sides and gravy.

  8. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
