Last week we had the most A-MAZ-ING dinner.
My parents had been on vacation in Ireland for a couple of weeks, and when they got home, I wanted to bring the family together for a nice dinner. My brother and sister-in-law couldn’t make it, but the rest of us got together to hear the details of the trip, reminisce about the family members they got to see, oh, and had a fantastic meal.
There are a few items that I try to stock up on when I grocery shop down in the states. One of those are boneless turkey breasts. I got these ones at Walmart for around $10 each.
I knew that I wanted to do something a little different, and since one of my favourite additions to a meal is bacon, I went with a bacon wrapped turkey breast for the main course.
I started with two turkey breasts and one package of bacon.
I laid the bacon out on a cookie sheet lined with crumpled tin foil and baked the entire package of bacon for about 30 minutes. The bacon was about 1/3 of the way cooked when I took it out of the oven.
I created a basket weave pattern over the top and sides of the turkey breast with the partially cooked bacon.
Then baked it in the oven for 2 glorious hours.
After taking the glorious baked concoction out of the oven, I let it rest on the cutting board for a few minutes to allow the juices to all flow together.
Then I used my trusty electric knife (still holding strong after 10 years, and I use this sucker for everything!) and sliced it into thin-ish slices.
Check it out... it was awesome...
And from another angle... Glorious.
You have to try this recipe... and then thank me!! Enjoy!
