It’s the week before Thanksgiving. You had planned to spend the holiday with your extended family, but plans fell through, and now you are at home, just you and your small family. You’ve never cooked a Thanksgiving meal before, but it’s not like you can skip out just because you’ve never done it before!! So, what do you do?

You don’t want to cook a full turkey. Your family is much too small for that. And let’s face it – a full turkey is kind of intimidating! But a turkey breast is totally do-able!

If you’ve never cooked a turkey breast before, you will find out it is so super simple. So simple, in fact, you don’t really need to wait just for a holiday to make one! It takes only minutes to prepare, then into the oven it goes to roast for 1 ½ to 2 hours. This frees up your time to make the other goodies, like stuffing and bread, or it gives you the extra time to spend doing things with your family! The hardest part of making a holiday meal, especially if you are doing it all on your own, is scheduling time in the oven for everything you are making. Turkey needs to go in, but pies also need to be baked, and rolls, and the green beans.

The solution to this is super simple, too – the GE Café™ Double Oven Range would make Thanksgiving morning a lot easier and a lot more enjoyable. You get two ovens that can be set at two different temperatures. And the bottom oven is a convection oven! Talk about making your job a little easier!!To cook on the stove is a dream, too. It has a tri-ring burner that goes as high as 20K BTUs – the most powerful burner GE Café ™ has ever made!

Or how about making the job go more quickly with the GE Café™ Advantium 120V Oven? With its Speedcook feature, you can cook more than two times faster than conventional baking! That’s a great way to get more family time into your holiday!!


Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast
Prep time
Total time
Turkey dinner without the hassle of cooking a full turkey! This recipe produces a moist, full of flavor turkey breast - perfect for a smaller family.
Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast, 6-8 lbs.
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 apple, quartered
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Rinse and dry the turkey breast. Gently pull the skin up from the breast, creating a pocket.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the butter and the herbs. Mix together completely. Using your hands, press the butter in between the skin and the breast meat. Place the apple and the onion in the small cavity under the bone.
  4. Place the tablespoon of flour in an oven-safe turkey bag. Shake to distribute. Place the turkey breast in the bag and set in a baking dish that is at least 2 inches deep. Make sure the onions and apple are on the bottom. Tuck the edges of the bag under the breast and cut a few slits in the top of the bag.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a thermometer inserted in the breast reads 170F, about 1 ½ to 2 hours. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

    6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups packed brown sugar (or half brown sugar, half maple sugar
    1 1/2 cups low fat evaporated milk
    4 tablespoons butter
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla or maple extract

    Preheat oven to 400F
    In a saucepan, combine flour and sugar and mix.
    Stir in milk slowly to avoid lumps, then add butter and salt.
    Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.
    Remove from heat, add vanilla or maple extract.
    Pour into an unbaked pie shell.
    Bake at 400F for 5 minutes.
    Reduce heat to 350F and continue baking for 25 minutes.
    Remove from oven and let cool in a rack.
    Serve cooled in small wedges, with vanilla ice cream or lightly sweetened whipped cream if desired.

    Do I have to decide which is my favorite think to make?? AGH?! I love the munchies before while we’re watching the games… Guacamole or Velveeta salsa dip are the easy favorites, or maybe even the shrimp dip with chili sauce.
    Or I like the raspberry-walnut or carrot-pineapple Jello salads that go with dinner.
    And of course the pies… Pumpkin for my hubby, Lemon meringue or Turtle cheesecake for me.
    But my all time favorite thing to eat at Thanksgiving time is the leftover sandwiches!! Turkey, salt, mayo, and canned cranberry sauce on the homemade rolls. YUM!

    I enjoy making appetizers and cookies!

  15. My favorite is my Mom’s broccoli cheese casserole. 🙂

    SAVORY SWEET POTATO SOUFFLE. A wonderful change from the usual dessert-like sweet potato dishes. I have made this every year for Thanksgiving (and other occasions as well) since I found it in a food magazine in November 2003. Have passed this along to so many people. Another favorite is SWEET ONION PUDDING. Wow. Found this in a magazine a few years ago and made it for a Christmas party. Quite literally every one asked for the recipe. Same results every time I make it. So very delicious. Was an easy add to the “make every year” list. Can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

  74. Lori B says:

    I’m always asked to bring desserts to our family Thanksgiving feast. I think it’s because I always try to find something different each year (in addition to the required pumpkin pie that is…I don’t dare walk in the door without pumpkin pie). Last year I made a pumpkin & gingerbread trifle which was a HUGE hit!

  75. Kelly Perry says:

The name and the dessert stuck 🙂

  142. angie lilly says:

    Thanksgiving is usually at my mom’s house so I don’t really make anything since the majority of the meal is taken care of. I help out with the side dishes and it’s kind of a tradition that I make the fruit salad (I don’t know that this is anyone’s tradition except my family’s), just cut up apples, bananas, and oranges.

    I made this turkey recipe for our Thanksgiving dinner last week…in fact, I made two-a test turkey breast for leftovers and another one for dinner. I was so sick of the inconsistency and stress that whole stuffed turkeys cause me every year. So, my friends said to use a bag and I found your recipe and my Thanksgiving experience has been forever changed! Perfectly moist, delicious and great the next day, too. So easy to clean up. Thank you so much for a great recipe!!!

  151. Kristen Trettenero-Rodriguez says:

    My favorite thing to make for Thanksgiving is a recipe passed down from my grandmother that she called “Ribbon Jello” but my family calls “Rainbow Jello”.
    You use 6 colors of jello and sour cream and it takes about 5 hours to make!
    My kids, friends, and family members ask for it every year though!
