    Very moist turkey from Bon Appetit Every-Night Cooking. The turkey roasts on a bed of caramelized onions that mixes with the turkey drippings to make a delicious gravy. It can also be made with a whole chicken.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Position rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 425°F Toss onions and 2 tablespoons oil in large roasting pan. Roast until onions are golden brown, stirring every 15 minutes, about 1 hour.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, rinse turkey inside and out; pat dry. Slide hand under skin of turkey breast to loosen skin. Spread butter under skin over breast meat. Arrange 4 sage leaves under skin on each side of breast. If stuffing turkey, spoon stuffing loosely into main cavity. Tuck wing tips under turkey; tie legs together loosely. Rub turkey all over with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Place turkey atop onions in pan. Add neck, heart and gizzard pieces to pan. Roast turkey 30 minutes. Pour 1 cup broth into pan. Tent turkey loosely with foil. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F Roast turkey 2 hours. Uncover; continue to roast until turkey is golden brown and thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 180°F, basting occasionally with pan juices, about 1 hour longer. Transfer to platter. Tent loosely with foil; let stand 30 minutes.
    4. 4

      I don't make whole turkey much, and usually roast turkey thighs. Unfortunately, there were none to be found. So I found a small turkey breast, around 2 lbs, for this recipe. I used pineapple sage, which has a more floral scent than does garden sage, and it worked very well in this recipe. Some of my onions ended up burning, so I had to fish them out before making the gravy. Because I had reduced the recipe, I just used a bit of dry vermouth instead of wine. I was surprised at how juicy the breast was without brining.

      This is my yearly recipe for Thanksgiving. Sometimes I make the stuffing separate and it still comes out moist and makes a very dark flavorful sauce (5 cups). Make sure you use fresh sage.
