We are really fond of the brown sugar bourbon spice by McCormicks and have used it on many dishes and put it on our burgers. So when I didn't have the spices I was looking for to make my turkey breast, I decided that this might do the trick. The family and I loved it, and the turkey breast came out delicious.

This spice is fairly strong in flavor, so you may want to adjust it or take off the skin with the spice on it if you are not fond of strong flavors. But the added flavor of the bacon and spice to the turkey is fantastic.

This turkey breast recipe is moist and full-flavored. It hits you with robust spicy and savory flavors. There's a light sweetness from the seasoning too. Juicy and easy to make, you may decide not to make a whole turkey again. And we know, bacon on anything is mighty tasty. A great recipe if you're hosting a small holiday. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Bourbon Turkey

Step-by-Step

  • 1Rinse turkey breast off and pat dry.
  • 2Mix spices with butter to make a soft paste.
  • 3Smear spice mix onto turkey breast. You can put the paste under the skin if you prefer, this will make the flavor stronger though.
  • 4Wrap each slice of bacon around the breast, tucking the edges under.
  • 5You want to cover the entire top of the breast, so more or less bacon is fine.
  • 6Cover loosely with aluminum foil and roast for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • 7Remove foil and allow turkey breast to roast until bacon is crisp.
  • 8Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before slicing. You can remove bacon before slicing, or you can slice with the bacon on it. Enjoy!
