The World's Best Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
For my first Turkey ever I used this recipe & tweaked it just a bit and all I can say is WOW!! I have never had such a flavorful or moist turkey. I stuffed the turkey with apples, onions, tangerines & carrots with a ton of cinnamon both in the cavity and under the skin. Per a suggestion I saw on another recipe I covered the turkey in slices of bacon to help seal in the moisture & season the drippings. I cooked my 12 lb turkey in a bag & put slits in it as per the directions & it was done in exactly 4 hours. While moving the leg to the side to get a good temp reading with my thermometer the bone literally came off in my hand! The turkey was so tender & the drippings made a fabulous gravy by adding sour cream and flour. My family raved throughout dinner about how the turkey turned out. Who knew champagne would do the trick?! I'd highly recommend trying this recipe & can't wait for Xmas dinner at my place again next year.
