Review: If you're too tired or too busy to cook an entire turkey this Thanksgiving, Wampler Foods may have a solution. The company's boneless turkey breast roasts come pre-seasoned and ready for the oven. They cook in about 1 1/2 hours (which has to beat getting up at 6 a.m. to dress a big bird). We tried a 2 1/2 -pound Italian Style Seasoned roast. It was a little heavy on the garlic for my husband, but I loved it. It was turkey unlike any I'd tasted before. The roasts also come in a more traditional Original flavor. Find them with other ready-to-cook products in the meat department of your local grocery store.
