"The herb rub lends delicious savory flavor to the outside of your turkey, while basting keeps the meat juicy inside. Reserve the pan juices to make gravy or serve with the turkey." — McCormick® Holiday

I made this recipe last year for my first thanksgiving that I cooked myself. The entire family loved it!! This year I'm trying to convince my family to let me make the turkey at my mom's house!!
The turkey turned out very flavorful but I will only use 1/2 to 3/4 of the seasoning next time as it was a little too seasoned for me. I have recommended this recipe to others to try this year as the family did enjoy the test turkey that I did last weekend.
Well this is a fantastic recipie. I tried it for Thanksgiving dinner and it really made the house smell good while cooking. I must really have a slow oven, because, for me, a 12 lb. turkey at 325 degrees, well it did not get done in the time specified. The breast was done; it came to 175 degrees and the red button popped out, but the legs and bottom were still pink and raw. Which was embarrasing because I had my new daughter in law at the dinner.
Sorry McCormick - I used other brands of seasonings which were in my cupboard! Otherwise a great rub recipe for turkey. Definitely a tad salty, next time I would decrease the salt by about 1/2 to 2/3 the amound listed. Thanks!
Was looking for new recipe to try for Thanksgiving and found this. Sounded so easy and tasty and reviews were very good. Will use this again as everyone enjoyed it.
Made my already moist delicious turkey even better. This is fabulous!
