Romantic Thanksgiving Meal: Traditional Turkey Dinner with a Twist

0 87
Celebrating a Thanksgiving dinner for two? Why bother with a whole turkey and eating turkey leftovers for weeks, when you can roast a turkey breast and have ample left overs to still enjoy post-Thanksgiving sandwiches. 
The first menu we have put together for our Romantic Meals on Thanksgiving series is for a traditional menu featuring roast turkey breast, cranberry sauce, wild rice, roasted butternut squash and seductive mini caramel dipped apples. Luscious cocktails, food, music, and romance for the holiday – what could be better?

I tried a roast turkey breast recipe I found online at Cookstr by Molly Stevens and really loved it. The key is to baste the turkey breast overnight in an a savory Herb Paste. I would suggest doubling the recipe for the paste so you can generously smear it under the skin and over the entire bird.  The next step to ensure a succulent, juicy bird is to sear the herbed turkey breast and then slow roast it at 300 degrees. 
One of my Favorite Holiday Cocktails. Flirtatious, Intriguing & Elegant; a perfect start to your feast.
