English Honey-Roasted Turkey Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This year I left out the lemon, and instead used half an orange to lightly rub the skin before applying the glaze. Whether using an orange or a lemon, be sure to go LIGHT on the rubbing! The flavor should be more about the butter and honey than about the citrus! Once again this turkey got rave reviews from my guests; even one of the pickiest eaters I've ever met loved this turkey and the gravy it made. Happy Roasting!

We upped the butter to 4oz and the honey to 8oz. The lemon was almost too strong, but the honey tasted great. For a 16+lb bird, we roasted for 2.5 hours at 350, after reducing the temperature, and it was just the right doneness.

This recipe is GREAT. I've never been crazy about turkey, but looooved this. It browned beautifully and made a really moist and yummy bird.

This is a great idea but I am not a fan of the roasting method. Starting out at 400 - covering with foil etc... If I were to do this again, I would stick with roasting at 350 and glaze more toward the end to get a nice finish. The cooking time in this recipe is also way off. It has you cooking a 10 Turkey for 3 1/2 - 4 hours to an internal temp of 180. A 10 lb turkey will take 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Poultry is considered done at an internal temp of 165. Check Food Safety . gov to confirm this.

I tried this recipe today,made a few alterations, I seasoned the turkey with seasoning called shadown benni (bandania),fresh chive and fresh celery a few cloves of garlic and then added the black pepper,salt and thyme pimento peppers to the blender and blended everything together and rubbed it all over the turkey inside out I think basically my turkey was dry probably due to the brand,so i added some chicken stock to the basting ingredients, the turkey was definately a hit among everyone and I would definately make this again!Thanks for such a great tasting recipe

This turkey was delicious. Very moist. First you get a taste of honey and then the lemon. It was really good.
