MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2015

"I made this yesterday and headed off to see the new Star Wars movie. It was wonderful to come home to this delicious turkey! I was surprised at how flavorful and juicy it is, even as leftovers today. The only changes I made were to put some thick slices of onion in the bottom, so the meat wasn't cooking in it's fat and to create my own italian spice mix. My boyfriend made off with the carcass and juice/onion mix, promising I will get turkey soup in return. A true test. Oh, and the movie was almost as good as the turkey."
