Turkey Breast in VitaClay: For When You Want a "Little Turkey"

Turkey Breast in VitaClay: For When You Want a "Little Turkey"

Suitable for VitaClay Models: VF7700, VM7900

Often when we think of Thanksgiving we think of turkey. And turkey is wonderful on Thanksgiving: it's a traditional dish that comforts us and reminds us of all of the family meals we enjoyed as we grew up. It may remind us of warm holiday meals surrounded by family and friends, and may bring back memories of times, places and people we won't ever see again.  

Some Thanksgivings are spent without a lot of family or friends around, and in those times you may still crave the nostalgia that comes with traditional Thanksgiving fare. If you want to make a Thanksgiving meal that won't have you swimming in leftovers, a turkey breast may be a sensible alternative to cooking a whole bird for just a few people.  

Try making a whole turkey breast in VitaClay any time of the year: we all know turkey is great on sandwiches and as a sensible, protein-packed meal. And with VitaClay, you'll be amazed at how easy cooking a turkey breast can be.

  • 1-3 cups broth (1 cup for VM7900 model or 3 cups for VM7800 models)
