I've made this turkey and gravy twice, for Christmas dinners. The flavor is wonderful, and the turkey is very juicy.

My family and I LOVE this turkey and gravy--this Thanksgiving will be my 3rd time making it. I like to puree some of the veggie mixture from the bottom of the pan and add it to the gravy for additional texture and depth of flavor. It is by far our favorite gravy. I've always used a fresh bird and never had a problem with the cooking time. Enjoy!

This turkey will change your life! I've made this recipe for three Thanksgivings in a row. It blew away my parents and my in-laws--in a good way! I was especially excited that my dad, who fancies himself a turkey guru, went back for third helpings. Sticking your whole arm up through the turkey to rub the butter mix between the thigh and the skin is gross, but it's totally worth it! You will never find a better recipe than this.

This was by far the BEST turkey recipe I have ever made. Everyone raved about the flavor of the turkey, especially the gravy. I will always roast our family's Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey using this recipe.

"The best turkey and gravy I've ever had." Quote from everyn person sitting at our Thanksgiving table this year! Although it cooked much longer than stated recipe, I did not find it to be anymore labor intensive than cooking a plain ol' turkey. Outstanding flavor and I couldn't have been happier. Will make every Thanksgiving from now on. I also blended the veggies in the broth before adding to the gravy for extra flavor.

The turkey came out perfectly, it was really moist and delicious. And it was easy to make.

For my very first turkey, this turned out good enough. I couldn't really taste the sage or Parmesan; if I make this again, I will double the rub ingredients. However, if you're looking for a solid gravy recipe THIS IS IT. Delicious.
