I've made this turkey every Thanksgiving for the past 15 years. We all love it. The secret is to use lots of fresh parsley on top and inside and to keep basting. That creates a tender, delightful turkey. —Sharon Hawk, Edwardsville, Illinois
Doris Russell of Fallston, Maryland offers the convenient option of baking just the turkey breast. Prepared with herbs and crisp-tender vegetables, no one will miss the rest of the bird. “It’s a breeze to prepare,” says Doris. “Plus, it allows you to spend more precious time with your family.”
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
Basted with a simple glaze, this wonderfully moist and tender turkey bakes to a lovely golden brown. Make it the centerpiece of your holiday table; guests will be glad you did.

Before putting my turkey in the oven, I pour on a savory sauce that adds a pleasant citrus-soy flavor and helps hold the other seasonings I like to sprinkle on. It's easy to roast the giblets in the same pan and later add them to the gravy.

With its pretty lattice crust, this cheesy baked dish is as eye-catching as it is delicious. It's easy to make, too, since it uses convenient crescent roll dough. It's a fun and different way to dress up left-over turkey.
