Rather than making a 15 or 20 pound turkey for just a few people, a turkey breast is perfect for just two people. Easily brine two turkey breasts and double the recipe for a family of four. For more Thanksgiving recipes check out my roundup here.
When the turkey is brined in advance, the meat absorbs the extra liquid and salt and results in a much juicier and flavorful meat. This method is great for a leaner meat like turkey breast which tends to dry out fairly easily, since it’s similar to the white meat of a chicken breast while the cider gives it a great flavor.
