Even during the holidays, my husband wouldn't eat turkey...until I tried this recipe. Now, he loves it! The sweet and spicy glaze gives the turkey a wonderful flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 turkey (14 to 16 pounds)
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • STUFFING:
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped celery
  • 12 cups unseasoned stuffing cubes or dry bread cubes
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups boiling water

Nutritional Facts

8 ounces cooked turkey with 1/2 cup stuffing equals 663 calories, 20 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 189 mg cholesterol, 1,129 mg sodium, 47 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 73 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place turkey on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Tuck wings under turkey; tie drumsticks together. Bake at 325° for 2 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, mix glaze ingredients; brush over turkey. Bake 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours longer or until a thermometer inserted in thigh reads 180°. Baste occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.)
  3. For stuffing, in a Dutch oven, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; cook and stir until tender. Add stuffing cubes and seasonings; toss to combine. Stir in enough boiling water to reach desired moistness; transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake, covered, for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes longer or until lightly browned.
  4. Remove turkey from oven; cover loosely with foil and let stand 15 minutes before carving. If desired, skim fat and thicken pan drippings for gravy. Serve with turkey and stuffing. Yield: 14 servings (8 cups stuffing).
Editor's Note: Stuffing can also be baked in turkey. Loosely stuff turkey just before baking; bake as directed, increasing final bake time by 15 minutes or until a thermometer reads 180° in thigh and 165° in center of stuffing.
