      Remove the turkey from the fridge 2 hours prior to cooking. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

After 3 hours in the oven, add the potatoes and carrots to the pan, basting with the sauce . Cover the turkey and continue basting throughout the roasting process.

      Stuffing: Combine all off the ingredients together then add the boiling water to attain a thick consistency. Once cool enough to handle, mix well using your hands. Add more bread crumbs if too soft and water if too hard then taste and adjust for seasoning. *Stuffing can be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
