While crafting is still a little slow, I thought I would share our Thanksgiving day turkey.
This is the second year I made this turkey, I love it!!
The reasons I love it are:
I like the spices
It doesn't take to long to make it (you don't stuff it)
It looks beautiful
I got the recipe off of Rachel Ray a few years ago when Bobby Flay was on her show. I was not cooking that year, but knew I wanted to try the recipe. Last year a gave it a whirl and loved it, so I went right back to it this year. It was a big hit and a success. The gravy the next day was to die for while all spice's sat in the gravy overnight. I don't eat gravy, but after everyone started to talk about the gravy I had to try some and boy was it good.
this was an 18 lb turkey I put it in the oven around 1030 and we were ready to eat around 130. yum
