Savory Turkey Herb Rub Recipe

I am all over make ahead herb mixes and rub recipes because they take seconds to make and are an easy way to make dinner taste fancy on the cheap when you don’t have the time to cook something elaborate.

Which is pretty much me all of the time.

Inspired by an over productive summer herb garden, a turkey breast I needed to defrost to get back some freezer space, and my social media feeds blowing up with posts from  friends competing in an international amateur swimming event in France,  I set out to create a savory meat rub recipe that is similar of French Herbes de Provence.

Which is a fancy way of saying spice mix made from herbs that grow well in Provence, France.

Oooh la la!

Originally I created this savory herb mix recipe to kick up a turkey (and as a test run for making Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.)  It tastes so fantastic that I used my savory meat rub on just about every type of meat my husband and I could think of: fish, chicken, turkey, beef, pork, and even lamb with excellent, excellent results.

Let’s just say, it’s been a savory kind of summer!

47 Things Thrifty People Save and Reuse to Save Money

Sometimes I am a complete weirdo and buy something or refuse to throw it out or recycle it because I can reuse the packaging to save money. After years of trying to get a second reuse out of almost everything before it hits the trash can, my family is practically debt free and our weekly household trash fills a grocery shopping bag on a good week.

Now I’m not saying I am some sort of hoarder (there’s no room for bunches of extra stuff when living in a condo! We do a quick check in to see if there is a need for an item and if we don't, then it is put in our recycling, donate, or trash bin.) Turns out by being resourceful with our trash there is a ton of stuff I don’t need to buy because I save and repurpose what I have around me. It saves money in an eco friendly way that works for us.
