Of all the turkeys I have ever eaten all over the world, this is a wonderful recipe! From the juices to the nuts in the stuffing, the brandy and all, this is the best I have ever had! I can not recommend it enough!
The next time Ms. Karagouni makes her turkey, I wish she would post the picture of her creation here so all of you could see what a truly appetizing turkey it is and with her stuffing.
It still could not begin to describe how fantastic it truly tastes! BRAVO to a great recipe 5 stars plus
just the standard turkey recipie the dressing was not good
I made this stuffing recipe this year to impress my Greek inlaws since this was the first time they came to my house for Thanksgiving in 22 years! They loved it! The only change I made was adding a dash of cinnamon because I always remember my mother in law's stuffing having a hint of cinnamon. I thought it was a nice addition.
I tried the recipe and the turkey tasted great. Brushing it often while cooking with butter and juice mixture, added a nice golden color. The stuffing also was extremely tasteful.I'm going to make it again.
I want to make this recipe for thanksgiving,so I tried it with a plain chicken to see what it tastes like!!it was fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And very easy to make.You can omit the stuffing if you want to make it easier,but it is worthy,take my word for it!The stuffing may take you an additional 30 minutes to make,but everybody will be impressed!!!Don't your beloved ones worth that too?And on such a special day???
I have been looking for a recipe that is comparable to what my mom used to make. She passed away many years ago but was a fabulous cook. Most of her recipes are written in greek so it is hard for me to follow, so I came here looking for help. Boy did I find it. This is exactly what she used to make. It is wonderfully flavorful and absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for sharing this!!
This is a succulent dish which is also surprisingly easy to fix. The tangerine, lemon and orange give it an extra zest.
