2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

3 cups cubed sourdough bread
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped sage
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

3.In medium bowl, toss potato, cinnamon, 1/2 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

4.Transfer turkey breast to large plate; spread bread mixture on 1 side of pan where turkey was roasted and top with turkey breast. Spread potato mixture on pan opposite turkey; roast 15 minutes.

5.In large bowl, toss green beans, mushrooms, remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Remove pan from oven; push potato mixture to upper part of pan. Spread green bean mixture below potato mixture; roast 15 minutes. Sprinkle potato mixture with pecans and cranberries; roast 10 minutes or until internal temperature of turkey reaches 165° and vegetables are tender. Let turkey stand 5 minutes before slicing.

Dietitian’s tip:
> Make sure your turkey breast is two pounds so that it will finish cooking at the same time as the green beans and sweet potatoes; any smaller and the turkey will be overcooked.
