    We'll be making this for the 3rd time since this recipe was published in 2002. It's hands-down, the best turkey, ever!! Can hardly wait for Thanksgiving dinner. My mouth is already watering!!

    Best Turkey I every roasted. This recipe is a keeper! The kids loved it and the skin which my kids fight over was a hit as well.

    I have made this turkey since I first saw the recipe in Sunset magazine in 2002. It's my go-to turkey recipe. It's always wonderful!

    I've made this recipe many times and each time it has been an excellent, very moist and yummy bird. Made it again tonight with a seven pound bone-in turkey breast that cooked in less than two hours. I did use rosemary but also added some thyme and sage, I dotted the outside of the breast with herb leaves to make it pretty. This is a very simple recipe and it comes out great every time, this would be a nice 'first turkey' recipe for a beginner cook. I strained the pan drippings and made an thin sauce with just a bit of diluted cornstarch and boiled for a few minutes until it slightly thickened.
