Simple Turkey Dinner
Nothing fancy. Just roast turkey breast, mashed potatoes and gravy, rutabaga and green beans. Not fancy but sure tasted good.
I presalted the turkey the day before and uncovered it Thursday morning so that it could air dry, making for a more crispy skin.
This was a boneless turkey breast so it didn't take long to roast. I worked yesterday so Moe had the oven preheated and the turkey out of the fridge before I got home. Roasted at 500°F the turkey went into the oven at 5:30 and was out of the oven before 6:30.
While the turkey rested, the vegetables cooked and dinner was on the table by 6:50 PM.
