I quit eating lunch meat when I learned about nitrates, but when I learned how to cook paper-thin slices of turkey at home, homemade lunch meat was on!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Rinse the turkey breast and pat dry. If yours comes with a twine casing, leave that on.
  3. Rub the homemade seasoned salt – or other seasoning of choice – all over the turkey breast, massaging it in as you cover the meat.
  4. Place the turkey breast in an 8×8 glass pan and drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil. Turn it over and drizzle with the remaining olive oil.
  5. Roast in the oven for 90 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165-170F.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
  7. Cut off the twine, if necessary, and refrigerate overnight.
  8. The next day, use a very sharp serrated knife (I have this one) to cut very thin slices of turkey breast, aiming for a slice that’s as wide as the knife blade.
  9. Store in the fridge, freezing any portions that won’t get eaten within a week.
