Thanksgiving Turkey

Christine Whisenhunt


If you think you can't cook a turkey or your bird always comes out dry, then this recipe is for you! I have taken my "no fail" method for cooking my turkey and added a few holiday flavors to make it my entry for the Thanksgiving main dish contest. When I say no fail, I mean no fail. It comes out beautiful and juicy EVERY time! That is how I always do my bird, and everyone ALWAYS raves. Until now, no one knew how simple it was, so my secret is out! LOL I hope you will try it and enjoy it as much as my family always has.
