DIRECTIONS

  • Combine 2 sticks of butter, half of the bunch of sage, pepper and a pinch of sea salt in a bowl set aside. In a sauce pan saute' the chopped onion in half of the sage butter until golden. Mix onion, sage butter with the loaf of corn bread that has been torn and broken apart into large crumbs.
  • Mix in 1 beaten egg, 1/2 cup cream and chicken broth to moisten. Season with pepper and salt. Set Aside!
  • Rinse the Turkey off inside and out, pat dry. Sprinkle the turkey inside and out with salt and pepper. Very carefully run your fingers under the skin, starting at the breast and working your way to the back of the turkey. With the rest of the sage butter smear it under the skin all over the turkey.
  • Stuff the turkey and roast at 350 for 30 minutes. Add 1 cup chicken broth to the pan. Mix 1/2 cup maple syrup with 2 tablespoons of hot water. Baste the turkey with the syrup every 30 minutes for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Cover the turkey with the 8 bacon strips starting across the breast and work your way back. Roast until the thigh meat reaches 175 this should take about 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer.
