Directions

  1. Place the butter, olive oil, garlic, orange zest, salt, peppercorns, oregano, rosemary, thyme, cumin, balsamic vinegar, and orange juice into the container of a blender, and pulse several times to combine.
  2. Push cloves into the onion, and place the clove-spiked onion, cinnamon stick, orange half, and bay leaf into the cavity of a turkey prepared for roasting. Place the turkey into an oven bag, and use your fingers to loosen the skin over the breast and legs. Pour marinade underneath the loosened turkey skin, seal the bag, and roast according to the oven bag instructions for your turkey's weight.

Just made this for my husband's brew party. Turned out really well. Everybody loved it. It was very moist and tender. I didn't use the roasting bag, but did it in a Nesco roaster. Delicious. Will definately make this again!

Just tried this and the family gave it rave reviews (even my husband who hates turkey complimented it 4 times). I didn't' have a cinnamon stick so I left it out. Delicious, moist, no one thing over powers and the color was picture perfect! Please note that using the cooking bag does decrease the cooking time considerably for your turkey (I did a 14 pound bird, un-stuffed in 2.5 hours).
