It’s Time to be Thankful!!

Thanksgiving is literally right around the corner. For a small, intimate Thanksgiving dinner, try this easy, juicy roasted turkey breast with a crispy skin.  We’re talking tender juicy meat with crispy skin, roasted on a layer of caramelized onions. Yum! Especially when you serve it with a side of mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. And don’t forget all those wonderful vegetable side dishes….. or the pumpkin and apple pies!



  • 1 (2-2.5 lbs.) turkey breast, boneless and skin-on
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme, stem removed
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Preheat oven to 450 F.

  • Wash and pat dry turkey with paper towels. Brush both sides of turkey breast with melted butter. Rub on salt, pepper and thyme.
  • On a roasting pan, add sliced onions and olive oil. Toss to coat. Layer roasting rack on top and place turkey breast with the skin up on a roasting tray. Roast for 25 minutes, until the skin is golden brown, then lower the oven temperature to 350 F and loosely cover the turkey with aluminum foil. Continue to roast until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 F, approximately 30-40 minutes, depending on thickness.
  • Remove from oven and allow turkey to sit for 15 minutes before carving.
  • Garnish with fresh thyme on top and serve with caramelized onions and your side dishes of choice.
