Stuffed Turkey Breast

Sometimes cooking an entire turkey is super intimidating or even unnecessary. I think enjoying a turkey breast that is still juicy and full of flavor is perfect for a Friendsgiving, Christmas, or hosting a special dinner. It’s a simple way to feed a crowd with traditional foods that aren’t complicated or require a full day of cooking.

I always love the idea of stuffing meat but don’t often to it. I often think you need a special occasion to do it. This dish has shown me though that it is simple enough to do, especially if you want to elevate a meat that is simple to cook. You’ll trick everyone into thinking you’re a super star chef!
