I just cut it into 5 thick slices This recipe was so moist and flavorful! I added the italian seasoning in with the onions, peppers & garlic when sauteing them and really liked the results. I also made the onion mixture a bit earlier in the day and put it in the fridge since my turkey hadn't fully thawed.
I think the extra time for the flavors to meld together really added to the taste. I than mixed everything together right before putting it in the oven and cooked for 45 minutes instead of 35. I than topped it with the ketchup mixture and cooked for another 10 minutes.
