Cured, uncured, or homemade turkey lunch meat, which one do you prefer? I bet you will say you would want to try the latter. And if you knew how we made it, you would like to try it. Turkey lunch meat seasoned to perfection with Noubess spices and slowly roasted.

Store any leftover in the fridge. You may also freeze any portions that won’t get eaten within a week.
If you are cooking a whole turkey breast with bone in, leave the bone and remove only after roasted.
