Wash and rinse the turkey breast and turkey drumsticks with cold water.
Put the turkey breast and the turkey drumsticks in a roasting pan. Put the breast part of the turkey facing down in the roasting pan. This time I will put it on its side so the lid will fit.
Spread 1/4 cup of butter all over the turkey breast and drumsticks.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper on the turkey and drumsticks.
Add about 1/8 cup of water to the bottom of the roasting pan, just enough to cover the bottom area of the pan.
Cover the roasting pan with a lid or aluminum foil and place it in the oven.
Bake for 3 to 3 and 1/2 hours, depending on how large your turkey breast is. Baking times are on the turkey packaging.
Buying a bigger turkey breast than needed is a great idea, then you can have leftovers the next night. Also, don't forget about hot turkey sandwiches with gravy the next night, or just turkey sandwiches with mayo. So delicious!
