The worshteshire sauce was too much for us, we could really taste it more than the gravy itself. and my turkey was a bit dry. I think next time i will cut the worshteshire sauce completely and just add a jar of turkey gravy and cook for about one hour less. i did side this with homemade stuffing, mashed potatoes and biscuits and that completed my mid-year thanksgiving meal! thanks for sharing the idea!

I love to cook! I also love to take complicated recipes and make them simpler. Who wouldn't like to have fewer pans to wash?
