Pinning for Life: Thanksgiving Recipes

Since I did a blog about Thanksgiving decorations, I thought it was only necessary that I blog about the most important part of Thanksgiving…food! Since I have family who are diabetic, I found a great pin that had some great recipes that my whole family could eat.  It’s not only good for the diabetic part of my family, but everyone! I found a great turkey and vegetable recipe I figured my family would love.  The ingredients you would need are:

  •  2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  •  4 cloves garlic, minced
  •  1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
  •  1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  1 2 3/4 – 3 1/4 – pound turkey breast portion with bone, skin removed
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  •   3 cups tiny red potatoes, quartered about a pound
  •  2 cups baby carrots with tops trimmed and halved lengthwise about 8 ounces
  •  2 cups white and/or red pearl onions trimmed and halved about 8 ounces
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil

There’s 5 simple directions when cooking this

  1.  Just preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Then use a small bowl, combine parsley, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, and set aside 1 tablespoon of the herb mixture.
  2.  Place turkey breast portion on a roasting rack in a shallow  pan. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the remaining herb mixture evenly over turkey breast portion; rub in with your fingers. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  3. Then in a large bowl, combine potatoes, carrots, and pearl onions; add the reserved 1 tablespoon herb mixture and the olive oil and toss until vegetables are coated. Arrange vegetables around turkey in roasting pan.
  4.  Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Roast for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours more or until the turkey is no longer pink , and vegetables are tender.
  5.  Transfer turkey to cutting board and let stand for 10 minutes.  Trim meat from bone, and enjoy!
