Turkey is one of the healthiest meats on the market today. In my opinion it is tastier and healthier than chicken. The white meat of the turkey is juicier and has more taste than the white meat of a chicken or even what is now called the other white meat (pork).

No. 1 of Turkey Breast Recipes: Quick Roasted (for four)

Ingredients: Turkey breast about three pounds or less, small red potatoes (about 12 or 14), 1 stick salted butter, salt & pepper to taste and one tablespoon of olive oil.

Preparation: Using a pan about 8x 14 or something similar, wash and lay the small red potatoes in the pan. Salt and pepper the potatoes to taste and rub the olive oil on them. Mix and rub them until all of the potatoes are oiled. Put a wire rack over the potatoes and place the turkey breast on the wire rack. Rub the turkey breast with butter (generously) and salt and pepper to taste. Place a foil sheet over the pan lightly and put into a 350 degree oven. Bake for about thirty minutes with the foil on. Remove the foil and bake until the turkey is browned to your liking. The center of the turkey breast should register 160 on your meat thermometer.

Variation of this turkey breast recipe: You can add onion and/or carrots and mushrooms to the potatoes.

No. 2 of Turkey Breast Recipes: Turkey Breast Soup (for four)

Ingredients: 1 small Turkey breast cut into fourths, giblets washed and kept whole, 1 medium size onion diced, two large carrots peeled and diced, three stalks celery peeled and diced, two large potatoes peeled and diced, two bay leaves, about two tablespoons dry parsley, about one teaspoon dry rosemary and salt and pepper to taste.

Preparation: Using a large pot (about eight quart) place the turkey breast into the pot and cover with cold water. Allow the water to come to a boil and remove the scum that will come to the top while the water is boiling. (If you have not done this before, use a slotted spoon to remove this scum. The slotted spoon will hold the scummy substance while the water falls through. Shake the scum off the spoon onto a thick piece of paper towel. Do this until the water is clear). When the water is clear add the vegetables, bay leaves, parsley and rosemary. Add salt and pepper to taste Add about four more cups of water and continue cooking until the turkey breast is thoroughly cooked.

When the turkey breast is cooked you can add other vegetables i.e. green beans, corn, peas etc. You can also add diced tomatoes to give the soup a tomato soup flavor.

No.3 of Turkey Breast Recipes: Turkey Breast Salad.

Ingredients: Turkey Breast (half of the cooked turkey from the soup recipe above) cut into small cubes, 1 small onion finely diced, 1 small bell pepper, 1 very small cucumber peeled and diced, 1 small carrot thinly shaved, ¼ cup mayo or salad dressing, salt and pepper to taste.

Preparation: Place all of the ingredients into a serving bowl including the mayo/salad dressing. Mix well until everything is coated and blended and serve with dinner rolls or bread of your choice.

These turkey breast recipes are easy and quick to prepare so make them and enjoy.
