Oven Free: Turkey on the Grill

In the summer, I will try anything rather than turn on the oven……so when I was cleaning the freezer & found a turkey breast, I immediately thought….Turkey on the Grill.  It was so easy & absolutely beautiful.  After thawing, it was done in about an hour.    Isn’t this the best looking turkey breast you’ve seen since last Thanksgiving ??   OK, so not the best photo.     turkey_grill

Turkey on the Grill

1 4-5 lb. turkey breast, thawed

1 T. olive oil

5 sprigs rosemary, minced

5 cloves garlic, minced

salt & pepper

Preheat the grill on high for 15-20 minutes or until it reaches 375 degrees.  Combine olive oil, rosemary & garlic in a small bowl. Brush over entire turkey or use your fingers to distribute well.   Salt & pepper to taste.

Place turkey in a grill pan or large aluminum baking pan & place on center of grill.  Close the lid & check after 30 minutes.   Turkey should be beginning to brown.  Rotate if you desire so browning is consistent.   Continue cooking for additional 30 minutes or until internal temperature is 175 degrees.   If your turkey is larger than 4 lbs., it may take another 15 minutes.   My turkey had a pop-up which did it’s thing at about an hour.

Transfer the turkey to a cutting board & allow to rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

Enjoy !!
