The perfect seasoning blend is all you need to for an oven roasted dry rubbed turkey breast that’s worthy of Thanksgiving dinner or any meal.


  • For dry rub
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • For turkey
  • 1 8-pound bone-in turkey breast


  1. In a small bowl, combine the rosemary, thyme, oregano, paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  2. Place the turkey breast skin side up on a rack inside a roasting pan. Rub the spice mixture on the entire turkey breast including underneath the skin. Let the turkey sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  4. Roast the turkey for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F and continue roasting for 1 to 1-1/2 hours until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast is 165 degrees F. Let the turkey rest for 20 minutes before slicing.
