The beauty of the roasted bird: Prep it, stuff it, pop it onto the pan, bake it, turn it, bake a little more. A satisfying dinner for four or dinner and lunch for 2 for 2 meals just as my boyfriend requested. Get creative, add bacon pieces inside or over the crust, or whatever your heart desires and your nose enjoys;-).
