This is my new favorite turkey recipe for Thanksgiving! Loved how easy it is to prepare and the flavorful gravy. I used Easy Crock Pot Stuffing (Dressing) for the stuffing, which I filled the turkey breast cavity with prior to turning on the crockpot. A couple of gravy mistakes I made which I note because I'll read this review the next time I make this: I didn't strain the gravy and I didn't thin it enough. I used fresh rosemary and sage. This is my go-to turkey recipe! Love it! Thanks, Cooks4_6! Not made for any tag game, food.com event, or recipe swap! Looked for a great Thanksgiving turkey recipe and I found one!!! Lol!

I agree with everyone else. This makes a delicious, scrumptious, delectable, and every other adjective I can think of, turkey and gravy! I would make this recipe again just for the gravy. I have never had a better gravy! I also have not brined a turkey before, and this does make for a moist turkey all the way around. Tonight for dinner we had open-faced turkey sandwiches with gravy on top. Mmmm. The best kind of left-overs (the kind you can't wait to eat). I will definitely make this again! Many thanks, Cooks4_6 for posting this!

This was my first time making a turkey. This is the best turkey ever! My husband said he has never had such a juicy turkey! The flavors were amazing! The gravy was delicious!

I made this for Thanksgiving just because I wanted to try something different. I'd never brined a turkey before. It was great. My son-in-law was amazed how tender and juicy the turkey leftovers were even after reheating in the microwave!

Made this turkey for Thanksgiving and am now just getting around to reviewing it. i was unable to find fresh sage and rosemary, but used freeze dried sage and dried (McCormick) rosemary and it turned out great! It was also my first attempt at gravy - everything was wonderful......nothing but compiments from our Thanksgiving company! Will definetly share and do again!

It appears that I also posted this recipe which turned out to be a duplicate. Since my photo is posted, thought that I would also review it, lol. We had this turkey again for Thanksgiving this year and everyone loves it. The gravy is awesome. I like to caramelize the onions a couple of weeks in advance and throw them in the freezer to save lots of time during the frantic Thanksgiving dinner process. Thanks Cooks4_6 for an outstanding recipe.

I cannot believe that I did not review this last Thanksgiving. Well, let's just say that it was such a hit that we are making it again this year! I love the spices, balsamic vinegar, and (of course) caramelized onions. I compliment it with a caramelized onion and chestnut stuffing. Thanks lazyme for a fantastic recipe.
