Turkey Spice Rub

Dreams of doing anything outdoors this holiday weekend are only going to happen if you dress warmly.  My deck cushions remain in the garage just waiting for warmer weather.  Along with the cushions, the grill awaits.  I had originally planned on cooking this turkey breast on the grill but cold winds made using the crock pot an excellent back up plan.






Turkey Spice Rub

2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper, fresh ground
1 tbsp sweet paprika
1 tbsp sage
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp dark brown sugar

Mix all the spices and sugar in a small bowl.  Rinse off turkey breast (or turkey) and pat dry.  Pat spice rub onto the turkey and bake until the internal temperature reaches 165°.
