      This was a wonderful recipe! I used all fresh herbs from my garden, even the bay leaves came off my trees. I minced all the herbs up roughly and stirred together in a bowl and used a small spoon to scoop it into the cavity and pressed it into with the back of the same teaspoon. Then added the lemon and bay leaf; 8 Birds, 8 bay leaves. I had the left over herbs and tossed them over the lot. I used my roaster out on the porch. To make clean up easy I dropped in a turkey pan and ... made it fit. I had tender tasty lucious birds to serve. It is a very versitile recipe. I put the Before and After shots with the recipe. There wasn't much left for an after plating shot. LOL Thank you again for a winner recipe.
