Barbecued Breast of Turkey

1 Turkey breast, split in half

1 8-oz. Bottle of Honey Dijon salad dressing

Marinate turkey breast in plastic bag with dressing over night. Turn occasionally. Remove turkey from bag and place on a pre-heated grill and cover. Push coals to one side and cook over indirect heat for 55-60 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 170º (or until juices run clear).

The more I think about it, I know this is how I’m cooking my Thanksgiving turkey this year. Very little if any leftovers. Maybe enough for a hot turkey sandwich or two (one of my favorites!) and no carcass to mess with and no pans to clean! My mother would’ve loved this recipe.
