Serving up a small crowd? This Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breast is a simple and easy way to enjoy Christmas dinner! Ready in just over an hour.
If you’re hosting a small crowd this year for Christmas dinner, why not consider roasting a turkey breast, as opposed to a whole turkey? This Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breast is SO easy to prepare, and is ready in just over an hour, from start to finish. Talk about making Christmas dinner easier than ever!
I partnered with Canadian Turkey to bring you this delicious turkey dinner recipe just in time for the holidays! I was compensated for my time, but the recipe, all thoughts and opinions are my own as always. We really love turkey.
How Much Turkey Breast to Make?
Roasting a turkey breast has quickly become one of my most favourite meals to make. I love being able to have all the flavours of a turkey dinner, without having to roast a whole turkey. This is especially helpful when I’ve only got a small crowd to feed, and don’t want a tonne of leftovers. One two pound turkey breast feeds our family of 5 pretty comfortably. But you can also get larger portions (up to almost five pounds), which would be perfect if you are serving 4 or 5 adults.
Not to mention how much easier it is to pull together a full turkey dinner with all the trimmings! Even though roasting a whole turkey is really easy (I promise it is!), there is something about just being able to roast a turkey breast that takes so much of the pressure off. Once you have the turkey breast in the oven, all you have to do is focus on all of your side dishes.
Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breast
To make this turkey breast perfect for Christmas dinner, I roasted it with a homemade cranberry & rosemary glaze. Roasting the turkey with the cranberry sauce makes this turkey tender, moist and so flavourful! So good. And really, turkey and cranberry are a match made in heaven.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! It’s a delicious Christmas dinner timesaver!
