If you don't want to spend hours babysitting your turkey in the oven this Thanksgiving, consider cooking a portion of the turkey to buy yourself a little time.
In this recipe, juicy turkey breasts are wrapped around your favorite stuffing variety. It has all the Thanksgiving essentials -- they're just arranged in a little bundle of deliciousness that only takes one hour in the oven (versus three or more). Plus, the absence of dark meat means these rolls are even a little healthier, too.
If it's all the same to your family, why not try it this year? Turkey is turkey, right?
Stuffed Turkey Breast
Lay turkey breast skin side down between two layers of plastic wrap. Pound breast to 1/2-inch thickness. Season with salt and pepper.
Mound a think layer of stuffing on top and roll turkey around stuffing. Secure with kitchen twine tied at 1-inch intervals. Season outside with salt and pepper.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in oven-safe skillet on medium-high heat. Brown turkey roll on all sides (a couple minutes on each side).
Finish in oven at 375 until internal temperature of turkey breast is 165 degrees -- about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Remove from oven. Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
