Husband and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week with his family in East Texas. We ate more food than I’ll admit but there was one key item missing from the holiday table: turkey. The baked ham and BBQ’d brisket were delicious, don’t get me wrong. But I missed turkey on Turkey Day.

My solution: prepare a mini-Thanksgiving feast just for Husband and I. Yesterday, I fixed two of Husband’s favorite side dishes (green bean casserole and creamy mashed potatoes) and my Mom’s cranberry relish. The star of our mini-feast was not a whole turkey, but a bone-in turkey breast. To make it extra special, I wrapped it with bacon.

You know it’s seriously good bacon when your Daddy’s name is on the label.

Dear God, thank you for reminding Noah to load a pair of pigs onto his Ark. Amen.

Wanna see a bacon- wrapped turkey breast sing a jingle?
