for One or Two!
you'll find a 2 1/2# breast will feed two plus
leftovers! Because the meat isn't cooking for
many hours in the oven, you don't get the amount
of pan juices needed for a gravy. This video
shows you how to make a sauce instead.
this video I recommend leaving the turkey out to come
up to "room temperature" and
then cooking it. Please know that in doing so you are creating an environment
that can harbor harmful bacteria most county Health Departments would classify
as a possible cause for "food borne illness." If you choose to
follow my lead, extreme caution must be taken to insure you don't contaminate
other foods or surfaces that may come into contact with the turkey and or
before it is fully cooked to a safe temperature, a minimum of 160°. If
you're not sure what you are doing, and you aren't 100% confident about the
hand, don't do it. Instead skip the room temperature part and prep the turkey
as shown right before it goes into the oven. Your times will vary from the
video, but getting the meat to the temperature (160
°to 165°) is the most important detail.
