      This recipe made for a tastey bird. I ground up the melted butter and the herbs and injected it. It was good all the way thru. I also stuck some crushed garlic cloves under the skin, at the breast, hip, and legs. Thanks for the recipe.

      I used this recipe for our Thanksgiving Turkey and was very happy with it. I used it again yesterday to cook a turkey for the freezer. Wonderful! Thanks Tish!
