IN THE KITCHEN with Fareway: Having a Smaller Thanksgiving Meal

Whitney Hemmer explained how you can do it Tuesday, November 17th.

ANKENY, Iowa — Smaller Thanksgiving

Scaling down your holiday menu (without scaling down the flavor) is as easy as talking to your local Fareway Meat Expert. Since some of the smaller options may be new to you, you might need some inspiration. A few perks to the smaller options? More oven space, more time and more money in your pocket.


Servings vary

Time varies


1 bone-in turkey breast (about 4 pounds)

4 Tbsp. softened butter

1 tsp. minced garlic

1 tsp. dried sage

½ tsp. dried rosemary

1 tsp. dried thyme

2 tsp. dried parsley

Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine butter, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Loosen the skin of the turkey breast and spread half of the butter mixture under the skin. Rub the other half on the outside of the turkey. Place the turkey in a large baking dish, skin side up, and bake for 15–20 minutes, until the skin starts to brown. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Bake turkey for about 45 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F, basting occasionally with juices from the pan. Remove turkey from the oven and tent with aluminum foil. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Fareway boneless hams come in whole, halves, quarters or ham steaks, so there really is a ham for every occasion. Try glazing your ham with our Maple Mustard Glaze. This recipe makes enough glaze for one whole 5-pound ham, but it can easily be scaled down for smaller cuts.
