ISO help cooking my turkey

OkAy, Not really a reply, more of a question. I'm new here and haven't figured out how everything works yet. It's been a few years since I've had to do turkey day at my house (usually go to our daughters but this year they are all coming here). I have a G.E. electric roaster..a BIG one. I have two turkey breasts each weighing about 7 1/4 to 7 1/2 lbs each. I plan to cook both in the one electric roaster. Will this require extra cooking time, or will it be the same? I really do not like cooking turkey dinners LOL. Thanks.

You are cooking 15 or so pounds of meat. depending on the space between them they may well cook faster than a 15 lb turkey. Use an insta-read thermometer to check them. Does the package have an approx time? if so check it then and then every 1/2 hour or so as needed.
