Is your Thanksgiving menu ready? Mine is! This year, like every other year, I'm only preparing the turkey breast. I don't like wasting food, but my family only likes white meat, so by only cooking the breast I save time and money. The best part of preparing only the breast is that you don't have to spend all day cooking. You can even leave the turkey seasoned over night, something I highly recommend. This will make the turkey flavorful and save you even more time. Happy Thanksgiving! MORE + LESS -

  • 2

    Rub the turkey with this mixture, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. You can do this the night before to give the turkey more flavors.

    Place the turkey in the baking dish and add 1/2 cup of broth. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 165°F, about 1 hour. Add more broth as is necessary to keep a bit of liquid in the dish.

Expert Tips

  • If you can't find fig butter in the market, you can make it at home. Place 2 cups of figs in a food processor with 1/2 cup of water and 2 cups of melted butter, process until pasty in consistency. Add more water if necessary.
