1 (12 pound)
whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
1 1/2 cups
toasted bread cubes
salt and pepper to taste
apples, cored and halved
added a bonus taste
The turkey turned out moist and juicy, and looked great. But, it was slightly lacking in flavor - next time I will add poultry seasoning. I did not care for the stuffing. It turned out soggy and the little flavor it had was weird (maybe the garlic powder - ?).
Second year making this turkey recipe. If you like a moist turkey than this is the recipe for you. Yummmm!
Excellent, very tender and full of juice.
I used this recipe to make my first turkey. It was fabulous! Very moist! Now I'm afraid to stray from this recipe for my second turkey!
i would definitely do this again. i have never cooked a turkey before but i read up on it to cook for some friends. i brined my turkey almost 24 hours, which you shouldn't because that's a little too long. the turkey turned out tasting fine, but my gravy was definitely too salty.
i used oranges instead of apples, i cut each orange in half and squeezed the juice over the turkey then stuffed it inside the cavity along with my vegetables, i didn't do the stuffing.
i was almost worried that there wasn't going to be enough juice to make gravy but there is so much you'll have plenty. the only bad part was that my turkey stuck to the plastic a little bit and ripped some skin off. my turkey was honestly so tender the drumsticks were falling off when i tried to move the bird to my cutting board. i thought my breast was pretty dry but everyone else thought it was really moist. i would trust them because i don't eat very much roast turkey anyway.
megaturkey indeed! This was quite the turkey! the stuffing was a bit wet for the bf, and he complained that there were no seasonings on the turkey itself, but otherwise he liked it. It is a very moist turkey. Mine took 5 hours to cook, but it was also an almost 20 lb turkey, so I am not surprised. If not horrendously flavorful, it is nice and moist. If I do this again I'll salt and pepper the bird itself and rub in some poultry seasoning as well. Thanks for the recipe. Spot on directions!
The stuffing was perfect. I diced one apple and left the second halved to cover the turkey ends.
The apple juice made it moist and had a great flavor. I prefered this over adding wine.
