What You Need:
Make sure you get a two pound turkey. A two pound turkey will cook the best in an hour. If you go bigger, it will take longer time to cook the turkey.
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without stuffing! There are many places that now offer gluten free stuffing. We found a box at our local Trader Joe's. I've also found some at Whole Foods Market.Gluten Free Stuffing
Oil is important for tossing the vegetables and or potatoes in. It's also important for brushing on the turkey so you get a nice browned turkey.
You can pick and choose a few vegetables or just go with one or two. Some might be:
- Butternut Squash
- Sliced Russet or Baby Potatoes
- Green Beans
- Sweet Potatoes
Sprinkle some seasoning over the top of your turkey and vegetables to add some taste! You can use an all purpose seasoning with thyme, rosemary and sage or just opt for some Italian seasoning that includes these seasonings and a few more.
Can I Use Regular Stuffing?
Yes, you can make this recipe with regular stuffing.
Can I Make This Vegan or Vegetarian?
Yes! Just substitute a two pound vegan turkey breast. We call it a tofurkey at our house.
Do You Have Other Five Ingredient Meals?
Yes! Our five ingredient Fourth of July meal also uses just five ingredients total--ribs, barbeque sauce, chocolate chips, butter and corn! (gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, soy free)
- First you will want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Then lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.
- Mix together your packaged stuffing mix. Spread the stuffing mix over the left half of the baking sheet, than arrange the turkey breast in the center of the stuffing. Brush the turkey with oil, then sprinkle with approximately ½-1 tablespoon of seasoning.
- Bake the turkey for approximately fifteen minutes covered.
- While the turkey is cooking prepare your potatoes and/or squash by cutting them then tossing them with a thin layer of oil. (If you are using baby potatoes you won't need to cut them)
- Uncover the turkey and stuffing and add the potatoes and squash and/or sweet potatoes to the right side of the dish. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
- Add green beans or broccoli (if using) the last 20 minutes of cooking time.
- Turkey is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees.
You can save this meal in an airtight container for several days. Microwave to reheat.
