My family had been going through some rough times, and when we were finally able to get together for Thanksgiving one year, I made this turkey. It brings back such good memories of joyful family gatherings. —Nicole Keller, Waterford, Pennsylvania
For a special occasion dinner, I stuff the turkey breast with onion, cloves and and orange before baking it. The results is a wonderful aroma as the turkey is roasting...and great flavor! Removing the skin from the bird from the bird before serving helps trim the fat...and the sweet glaze drizzled over individual slices makes a fantastic alternative to gravy.—Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
Mouthwatering flavors of autumn permeate this lovely stuffing concocted by our Test Kitchen home economists. Apple bits and plump raisins add fruity flavor to the brown rice.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
When I first fixed this, we were living on a ranch along a river with lots of game. Wild turkey can be dry, but not prepared this way! Of course, it's just as tasty with store-bought turkey. And the gravy it makes is out of this world.

The house smells so good while this turkey is cooking that my family can hardly wait to eat! The garlic, herbs and lemon are so simple, but they're all you really need for this turkey to shine. —Cathy Dobbins, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
"For years, my mother has stuffed a holiday turkey with this moist dressing," comments Kathi Graham of Naperville, Illinois. "Now I do the same thing. Its special flavor nicely compliments the tender, juicy slices of oven-roasted turkey."
