It had been a long time since I cooked the Thanksgiving turkey so I turned to the internet to get some ideas and found this recipe. I followed the directions and the turkey was delicious but the best part was the gravy made from the pan drippings. I don't care for giblet gravy so I just strained some of the pan drippings, added flour to thicken and it was perfect. By the way, pay attention to how long YOUR turkey needs to cook. I almost waited too late to start based on the recommendations from this recipe. My 19 pound turkey needed about 4 hours; thank goodness for my convection oven! Thanks Sharlene for sharing!
The best turkey I've ever had! It turned out so moist. I couldn't have asked for a better turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner! Thank you for sharing!
this sounds really good but it is not a crock pot recipe.
I had the opportunity to do this turkey before Thanksgiving, and it was wonderful! I had a 12-pound turkey but kept the measurements of other ingredients the same and I was a little short on time so my oven temp was a little higher... Just wanted to comment on how delicious the herb combination was. How often do you see rosemary combined with turkey? It was a nice change from the usual sage, etc., plus I'm always a fan of bay leaves; the ones I used were fresh and were so delicious with the rest of the seasonings. Thanks so much Sharlene, I think I'm going to try this with a simple roast chicken or Cornish Hen as well.
