We have been using Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roasts for awhile now. I love turkey but who wants to roast a whole turkey. These turkey roasts are delicious.
The Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast is 3 lbs and according to the package it serves 10. That would be a pretty small serving if you ask me. I make this for my husband and myself and we give a few hand outs to the dog and cat. I think we eat more than half of it ourselves. The Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast cost's around $10. Sometimes there is a good sale and we stock up on them. They do not take up much room in the freezer.
The Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast is easy to make. You can thaw it or cook it right from the freezer. I usually thaw mine for a little while but not completely mainly because It is hard to get the gravy packet separated if it's frozen.
I also like to remove the stretchy mesh thing that is on the turkey before I cook it. I do not feel it falls apart or anything especially since when I put it in the oven it is still partially frozen.I take the Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast out of the freezer about 2-3 hrs before it goes in the oven and thawed enough at that point to remove everything. It takes about 2-2.5 hrs to cook from that point.
The directions say to roast the turkey at 325 degrees and gives directions for frozen and thawed. The way I make it, I start with 2 hrs on the timer and then check the temp.I use a thermometer to check to see if it is done but a pop up timer would sure make that easier. I know you can buy pop up timers but then I would have to thaw it first.
I have cooked this open in the pan and also in a cooking bag. One nice thing about using the cooking bag is that you get more juice rather than it evaporating.
I am on a low carb diet so I would prefer to have more juice and maybe not use the entire gravy packet. Still it's great tasting either way.The gravy is delicious. It is flavorful and easy to make. The only thing is that it makes way more gravy than we need. I do not use a lot of gravy since I am low carbing. We end up dumping out a lot of it as I rarely save gravy.
Besides the plain variety, you can buy the Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast in a few flavors including a cajun one. We have never tried the other flavors because the plain one is so good.Serving Suggestions for an Easy Everyday Turkey Dinner: www.bubblews.com/news/1077336
