LOW CARB BACON WRAPPED TURKEY BREAST RECIPE:
This is a wonderful and easy "fancy" recipe for 1 or 2 people.
- 6 large slices bacon (no sugar added)
- 3/4 lb. turkey breast
- 1/2 tsp. dried, ground rosemary
- 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp. dried, ground sage
On a flat work surface, lay the bacon in a row with the slices butting up against each other.
Place the turkey breast on top.
Sprinkle the seasoning over the turkey breast, being sure to get both sides.
Wrap the end pieces of bacon around the turkey breast first, then follow by the middle pieces.
Transfer to a parchment lined cookie sheet and cover loosely with foil.
Bake at 350 F. for approximately 1 hour. Time may vary by oven and based on thickness of turkey breast. It's done when a meat thermometer reads at least 165 F.
Remove foil in the last 10 minutes of cooking to allow the bacon to brown nicely.
Remove from oven and let sit for about 5-10 minutes.
Slice and serve.
