Juicy Roast Turkey
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 3-1/2 hours + standing
I've made it 4 years in a row now.. It's perfect
This was horrible i will never make it again. Using this recipe ruined my thanksgiving dinner. The skin had a nasty flavor which also ruined my turkey gravy.
This turkey turned out full of flavor. We especially loved having the bacon flavor on the breast meat.
I made this for Thanksgiving & it was delicious. This was only my third time cooking a turkey, so I don't have a lot of experience with them. Since I had an 18 lb. turkey, I doubled the recipe and increased the cooking time and it turned out juicy, delicious & it looked beautiful too. I will continue to use this recipe in the future.
Tis the season!!! Can't wait until Thanksgiving Dinner this Thursday, 2013!!! This recipe is as" GOOD" as it gets. Made it last year and is definitely a KEEPER. We did a 22 pound turkey and doubled the recipe.
can i use a 14 to 15 lb turkey? and if so.are there any changes i need to make
There isn't anything about cheesecloth in the directions or ingredients,but I have use cheesecloth on my turkey in the past I soak it in melted butter with wine lay it over the turkey breast (use several layers of cheesecloth), I do use the rest of this recipe very good
I used an 8 1/2 pound turkey for this recipe. I cooked it covered for 1 1/2 hours and then left it uncovered for 2 hours. I basted the turkey every twenty minutes to be sure it stayed moist. It was delicious, juicy and all my guests asked for the recipe. I didn't use bacon or fresh parsley (dry instead). I also sprinkled a little garlic salt on before cooking. I will DEFINITELY use this recipe again.
didn't turn out juicy, was really quite dry.
This recipe was incredible! I loved this turkey and received ALOT of compliments about its juiciness and rich flavor.
