    Annacia's Note:

    This turkey roast blends light and dark meat -- but it's compact and carves easily into neat slices. Grill the meat to free up oven space for the turkey trimmings

      Very flavorful! I made 1 large breast for the three of us. Also, I was out of OJ so I subbed it with red grapefruit juice and used dried orange zest. I used the oven method and it came out tender, delicious, and lots of flavor! I plan on making this recipe again, and using our electric deli slicer (for ultra thin slices) to make sandwiches! YUM! Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

      It was only my husband and myself for Thanksgiving this year. No need to make a huge Turkey so I found something called Rolled Roast Turkey Thigh (dark meat turkey rolled to form something that looks like roast beef) - just 3 pds. Didn't know how to prepare it until I found this receipe. I used the oven at 325 as suggested at the end - THIS WAS DELICIOUS!! Compliments to the chef who shared the recipe.
