Thanks for posting this recipe KathyP53. This truly was the best turkey I ever cooked. The recipe is well written. I did not bother with the vegetables since I had plenty of sides at Christmas. Everyone raved over it. This IS the recipe I will use forevermore!
I had this delicious turkey last night and it was very moist!
This turkey is very moist and tender, it is the first turkey that has melted in our mouths. My entire family said it was the best turkey they had. I did cook the vegetables & added pumpkin to roast for a first course bisque. While the bisque was delicious it wasn't needed and was upstaged by the turkey & vegetables. I certainly echo Kathy's "This is the recipe I will use forevermore!".
