Spiced Turkey Rub

I am working hard this week to fit in enough recipes on Bread & With It to help you prepare for Thanksgiving. Luckily, this year I’m being treated to dinner at my sister’s house, so I won’t have to repeat this process again on Thursday! Other than making candied yams and Michael’s green bean casserole; we will have a very laid back Thanksgiving this year.

It’s a big job, preparing for your whole family to eat together under one roof. I think we can all agree that the best turkey is tender, juicy, and flavorful. There are many ways to achieve this. This year I decided to try a new spiced turkey rub. Basically, it’s mixture several spices that you massage deeply into the skin of your turkey before roasting. For specific roasting times and temperatures make sure you check the Turkey Cooking Times and Temperatures chart.

This spiced turkey rub gives the skin a beautiful deep color and boost in flavor. I enjoy eating the crispy turkey skin on Thanksgiving, and the rub makes it even more delicious. I topped my turkey meat with a heaping spoonful of fresh homemade cranberry sauce to sweeten it up. The combination was heavenly.

Last year, Michael and I visited our local grocery store a couple of days after Thanksgiving. We bought several large turkeys for only a couple of dollars each! It was amazing. You better believe these turkeys stretched a long way! We ate really well the first night, then packaged up all the left over meat into containers for several meals to come. After dinner the first night, I boiled the carcass to make a turkey frame broth. I divided the broth into several jars that froze and used later for soups or recipes calling for broth.

This recipes is very simple and tasty. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to prepare a delicious turkey, combine the spiced turkey rub with the turkey cooking times and temperatures chart. Follow these instructions and you are guaranteed to have a successful Thanksgiving turkey on your table this year!

Toss on a super adorable apron and you will be the star of Thanksgiving!
