Turkey Brine and Smoke Recipe for Lunch Meat


1. In large glass bowl mix cream cheese, spinach, bacon, garlic, spices, parsley, rosemary, and thyme until fully combined 
2. Lay out plastic wrap about 5 inches longer on each side of your breast, place breast in the center of wrap. Fill your turkey breast leaving 1/4“around edges. Roll your breast length wise to create a beautiful roll. Wrap in plastic and place in fridge for one hour. This will help the cream cheese set and all those flavors with the mixture to marry and create something special. 
3. Preheat grill, smoker, or oven to 350º 
4. Remove turkey from fridge and unwrap from plastic. You don’t have to, but I like to tie in butcher twine to make sure my roulade stays tight while it cooks. If you don’t do this step, just make sure you place seem down. 
5. Cook until internal temp reaches 150-155ºf
6. Remove from heat and let cool 2-3 minutes before slicing into. Serve with your favorite side and enjoy.
