Eaten without the skin, turkey makes a healthy, tasty meal. Turkey breast is the leanest of meats, and its mild flavour makes it a versatile ingredient. It also supplies high-quality protein and B vitamins.
It's best to cook the stuffing for a whole turkey separately. It will not absorb fat from the turkey – and the bird will cook in far less time. * If you've been advised to watch your intake of saturated fat (everyone should, but it's especially important for people with high cholesterol), skinless turkey breast should be on the table frequently. It contains less saturated fat than any other meat. * Skinless turkey breast has about the same amount of protein, vitamin B6 and niacin as lean beef, but less fat.
