Roasted Turkey a l’Orange
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 3-1/2 hours + standing
I was worried the vegetables would not have a lot of flavor. They were very nice! I had some meat from the middle and could taste the flavors of the orange and seasonings. I am not sure eating the skin would have been my sort of thing. I had a small portion where there was some skin attached and it was a bit strong for my liking. Of course the skin was a bit fatty and I don't like that part anyway. This is definitely a recipe I will make again. It was a new recipe for Christmas Eve dinner and I have to say I was very happy with it. Also, I did not make a full turkey but just the breast. Maybe this is why the skin area was a bit over powering as I did not cut the seasoning part at all. Thanks for a new twist on turkey!
I used a 16.6 lb Butterball turkey. It was the most moist I have ever had. Thinking I will use double the veggies & place inside cavity as well!
Just made this tonight. It was very good and my daughter LOVED it. The orange flavor was great. I usually brine my turkeys, but this turned out very moist as is. I used a Jenni-O Turkey.
