I love making this turkey because it is so incredibly easy! I have made it for big groups on more than one occasion and it has gone over very well! One guy even said it was better than his mothers...OPE! ;)
The recipe is lovely just the way it is but I do make a few personal preference changes.
Instead of just butter pads under the skin, I mix loads of fresh minced garlic and mush it with butter then slather it everywhere under the skin. Any leftovers get rubbed on the outside.
I would like to try it with all chicken broth but so far I have only done half broth and half bouillon.
I also use fresh minced parsley and onions vrs. the dried, this requires you to add a bit more.
I like to use half seasoning salt and half Mrs. Dash seasoning.
Last but not least, I stuff the cavity and all around the bird with fresh largely cut onions and garlic. (Next time I am going to add celery, carrot and apple as another viewer suggests)
Throw it all in a turkey bag and YUM!!
