    Sweetiebarbara's Note:

    Easy, two dressings, a crowd pleaser. This is for a roast turkey, the skin will be crisp and golden. I have found that putting a lid on the roaster gives me more of a steamed turkey, still good, and if you take the lid off near the end of cooking you can also get it to brown. Just depends on your preference.
