Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

While I love cooking a huge whole turkey for the holidays, there is no need to get a whole turkey when you’re cooking for two. Instead, I picked up a turkey breast from the store which weighed in at about 7 pounds with the bones so that was more than enough for two. Of course one of the best things about thanksgiving is the leftovers for turkey sandwiches! This turkey was so tender and juicy–I was very happy with how it turned out.
