Looking for the best turkey rub recipe? Like ever?
Last week I roasted some turkey breasts for my daughter’s Daisy Troop Thanksgiving Feast and used this rub (slightly adapted from Barefoot Contessa’s recipe). I have to say it was tasty so I wanted to share this turkey rub recipe with you. I’ll be using it on our bird this year!
Best Turkey Rub Recipe
3 Tbsp minced garlic (or you can use your press)
6 tsp dry mustard
3 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
3 Tbsp chopped fresh sage leaves
3 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
6 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp white pepper
6 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup Sherry wine
In a bowl combine the garlic, mustard, herbs, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice to make a paste. Loosen the skin from the meat gently and smear the paste under the skin. Pour the wine into the bottom of the roasting pan.
Make sure to pay attention to your birds packaging for weight/roasting times. (Center of breast should reach an internal temp of 165 degrees F and the stuffing should too.)

Happy Turkey Day to you and yours!
