      I'm with everyone else! This recipe is FANTASTIC and made an excellent Easter dinner! I chopped Gala Apples, mixed with the celery and some sprigs of Rosemary and stuffed them in the cavity. I rubbed the outside with Olive oil and shook some Rosemary and Sage on top and stuck minced garlic (I hate peeling and chopping fresh, so I always use minced) under the skin in lots of different places. My dh came downstairs from a nap and commented on how great dinner smelled! The fragrance as it cooked was amazing! I served it with 1. Supreme Garlic Mashed Potatoes (#19259) 2. Roast Chicken (#24062) 3. Mother's Cabbage Relish (#38358) 4. Asparagus Salad (#88014) DH raved about the entire dinner and I'm pleased that I made yet another fantastic holiday dinner solely with recipes from Zaar!
