Bacon wrapped turkey breast

Brian and I decided to make a turkey breast for Thanksgiving dinner. Neither of us are big fans of dark meat and we didn’t need a giant turkey for just the two of us.

My mom recommended making a turkey breast wrapped in bacon. This method lends to and extremely moist and tender meat with excellent flavor.


  • 3 pound turkey breast
  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 8-9 slices center cut bacon

Preheat oven to 350F.

Clean turkey breast per instructions that came with turkey. Evenly coat entire breast with softened butter. Place turkey breast in roasting pan and drape bacon over entire turkey breast.

Cover roasting pan very tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 80-90 minutes. Pull out of oven and leave covered for 20-30 minutes. Do not peek! This will make your turkey amazing.

Take bacon off turkey and discard. Slice. Eat.

This is pretty much a fool-proof way to make amazing turkey meat. If you make it like this, you will never have dry turkey again.
