Selfhelp’s Director of Dining, Sofia Metovic, CDM, CFPP, shares her delicious turkey breast recipe just in time for your Thanksgiving meal…
This tasty dish is often made for the residents of The Selfhelp Home throughout the year. Fun fact: The Selfhelp Home gives every staff member and their family a turkey dinner package that includes a turkey breast, stuffing, potatoes, cranberries and an apple pie. This is our way of showing gratitude for our team on Thanksgiving!
- Turkey breast with skin
- Fresh garlic
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- Slice up garlic and mix it with a cup of mayonnaise and two tablespoons of paprika. Rub it all over the turkey breast.
- Stick the leftover garlic pieces under the skin.
- Put it in the oven for 45-60 minutes. Use a thermometer to check if it’s cooked.
- Take off the skin and slice the turkey around the bones (follow the bone pattern).
