I could eat turkey every day. This past year as I was recovering from my most invasive surgery on Thanksgiving day, we still had turkey. I was standing in the kitchen giving my husband orders, as I was not cleared to do ANYTHING. We were very happy, as we had just brought our baby home. Even though the stuffing came from a bag and the pie filling came from a can, it was one of our happiest Thanksgivings.
This is a back pocket roast because you throw everything in and leave it. It’s easy to keep a roast in the freezer and let it defrost overnight. The white wine really adds some depth to this. Of course, fresh ground pepper doesn’t hurt. Make this a one pot meal with carrots and potatoes. Easy cleanup all around!
You better believe this can go with my microwave mashed potatoes and my country style green beans. You’ll eat like a king! You want a mighty fine turkey sandwich? Use this turkey and put gravy on one side of your bread and good quality mayo on the other with a generous grind of pepper. Thank me later.
Is turkey a Thanksgiving only meal in your house?
