Our family is not fond of dark meat, so I always make a boneless roast turkey breast, not a whole turkey. Admittedly, roasting a whole turkey intimidates me, especially the brining part. However, this recipe is super easy and doesn't take very long to prepare. It always comes out moist and delicious. The trick is to use a meat thermometer and take it out of the oven when the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. I made a 3.5 pound turkey breast and it fed 5 people with enough leftovers for dinner the next night once I added a couple of side dishes. Make a rub of the seasonings, drizzle olive oil on your raw turkey breast, put the rub all over it, add some fresh herbs and place in the oven. The smell in the house, while it roasts, is awesome.
