Rum Glazed Roast Turkey

Yes, Jamaicans eat Turkey. This recipe can be made anytime. You use Turkey Breast


1/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Lime Juice
2 tablespoons Dark Rum ( I use Appleton Special dark)

1 boned Turkey Breast
Garlic Seasoning
Onion Powder
3 bacon strips

Preheat the oven to 350. Spread your Turkey Breast skin down on a cutting board. Dot with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper, garlic seasoning and onion powder. Put turkey into a baking pan and put pan in the oven.
Mix together the sugar, lemon juice, rum and stir until the sugar is dissolved. After the meat is cooked for 1 hour then spoon the mixture over it. Cook the turkey until it has an internal heat of 170, baste with the pan juices about every 15 minutes. (add the turkey strips for the last 15 minutes. - use hickory smoke if you have it)

You know it is done when the glaze becomes thick and roast glossy brown. Remove from the oven and allow to rest at least 15 minutes. Slice and enjoy with your favorite side dish. (I like potato)
