This is so easy and because of the quality of the turkey, unbelievably flavorful. With repeated basting, it is so nicely moist. You can add more flavors with curry, tumeric and tarragon. We suggest avoiding cooking stuffing inside the turkey. Instead, cook it on the side during special occasions. Placing fruit in the center really enhances the juices – the more the better! A whole roast turkey is a cost efficient way to feed your family – everyone loves it – and it’s breeze to prepare. For those who work, prepare it in a crockpot. Have it at least six times a year.
A 6/6 Performance Rating is great. Just think of all the bountiful health benefits of this meal when you add your side dishes: green beans almondine or peas, sweet potatoes and corn bread. Yum! Now everyone is happy!
