Bacon Wrapped Turkey

We tried this last week and decided to do it again it was so good. Take a fresh turkey breast, bone it, and remove the skin. Season the meat to suit your taste and then completely encapsulate in a bacon weave (note, thin bacon cooks up better than thick sliced in this application). Bake indirect at 375* on a mesh rack until IT hits 160*. Let rest for at least 30 minutes prior to slicing. Eat or save for later, or both. It slices best when cold, right out of the refrigerator. I did this one just to have sandwich fixings. It's cheaper than turkey deli meat and tastes so much better. This makes the best turkey sandwiches I've ever had.

    Thanks to all. I'd like to say this was an original, but I was inspired by Malcom Reed. I guess mine is a little different, as I didn't inject it with anything and I put my bacon on the diagonal. It tastes better that way  =)
