ground black pepper
chopped fresh thyme
chopped fresh sage
1 (20 pound)
whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
chicken broth, divided
This is an great easy recipe. I mix my butter and fresh herbs than place in a piece of plastic wrap, mold into a log and place in the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen, I then cut the butter mixture into discs and place the frozen butter/herb discs between the turkey skin and the meat. As the turkey cooks, the butter and herbs melt into the meat and it is fabulous!
it didn't turn out moist. I think that I started basting it early enough. So I will try again.
Wow great recipe except dont cook the turkey the entire time at 450 start with a half hour then set at 350 till done.So you dont end up with a over cooked burnt skin
First fantastic Picture. I just need the picture to eat it, it is so delicious.
For the years of cooking their is nothing to say about your recipe excellent to the last piece turkey.
I have a feeling that not exactly the words, but trust me after finishing our meal I felt like a king. I went for number 3 when my wife & daughters leave some for us tomorrow
Really really good! We covered it with foil, and turned down the temp for the past hour and a half. Other than that it was fabulous and a big hit!!!
Everyone agrees that this was the best turkey they've ever had! Was given a 28 lb'er and although a little scary - using this recipe - essentially unchanged except for oven @ 350 F. - brought out a Turkey that was moist, flavorful and ever so good.
My family raved and my husband said I redeemed my turkey cooking ability since my thanksgiving turkey was a flop! I only used a 7 lb breast with this recipe, but it was great! The gravy was delicious as well!
This worked just as I had hoped and with the dressing added inside there was just that extra special sweetness that shouldn't be missed!
