Thanksgiving is right around the corner and today I have for you a Herb Crusted Roast Turkey Recipe. As you can see in the pictures, this roast turkey will certainly feed more than one person, but I’m labeling it as a “for one” recipe to demonstrate how anyone who is cooking only for themselves can still enjoy a turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. Besides, a Thanksgiving dinner for one needs leftovers too, right?

I recently shared my single serving Pecan Pie For One recipe with you and for the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing all kinds of traditional Thanksgiving side dishes that serve one or two people. Let’s start with this tender and juicy Herb Crusted Turkey Roast that I’m pretty sure you will love.

Turkey Roast

A boneless turkey roast is a great option when you don’t want to cook a large whole turkey. This boneless turkey roast from Butterball is 3 pounds, the perfect size if you’re cooking for one or if you’re cooking for just a few people.

A boneless turkey roast combines both white and dark meat, it’s a great choice if you like both types of meat.  A turkey roast also cooks fairly quickly compared to roasting a whole turkey. A 3-pound turkey roast cooks for around 2 hours in the oven.

Turkey Roast Recipe

For the herb crust, I make a herb paste with dried basil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper and a touch of olive oil. I rub the paste all over the turkey, then top the turkey with butter.

The turkey cooks until the internal temperature reaches 175° F, which is usually around 2 hours.

A turkey roast is so incredibly tender and very juicy. The smaller size means I can still have a little left over but won’t be eating turkey for a week. The leftover turkey would be wonderful in place of chicken in a Chicken Salad, or in a Chicken Soup.

Enjoy!
