3 Step DIY Turkey Deli Meat

Deli meat, AKA cold cuts, AKA luncheon meats, are found everywhere and can be a brown bagger’s best friend – a 2 faced friend, with a dirty little secret, that is! Yup, despite it looking (and tasting) good, this friend doesn’t have your best interest in mind.

Take a look at the ingredients of this Oscar Mayer Roasted Turkey Breast Lunch Meat:

3 Step DIY Turkey Deli Meat

DIY Turkey Breast Deli Meat

The moistest, easiest turkey breast deli meat that will love you back.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large Turkey Breast Roast (boneless)
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Rosemary and Thyme Optional but a very nice addition

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 200° F and set oven rack to center. Prepare a cookie sheet by lining it with aluminum foil (you could use parchment paper here but because the meat isn’t actually going to touch the foil I prefer aluminum for easier clean up), then placing a rack on top of it.
  • Give your roast a rinse and pat dry.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and generously sprinkle with sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Press in the herbs.
  • Put a meat thermometer in the center of the roast and place roast on rack.
  • Place in oven and cook until internal temperature reaches 165° F.
  • Allow to cool then slice. You can use a sharp knife or a deli meat slicer for more even slices, either way it’s delicious, moist and additive free. Enjoy!

Notes

A meat thermometer is important for this recipe because it allows for safe cooking without over doing it.
