I starting using this recipe 10 years ago. It's a favorite with my family. Tender juicy turkey meat with lot's of flavor and delicious gravy.
I add a few cups of chicken broth to the bottom of the pan to keep the cola/maple glaze drippings from burning. This recipe makes the most delicious gravy (if the drippings don't burn).
Fantastic!!! After reading review decided not to use the cola/maple mixture during cooking. Roasted in a turkey bag. Was perfect.
I sometimes wonder who is the idiot who only gives one star and hundreds of others give it a 5 star... well this time I'm the idiot who only gives one star & my family agrees... so sorry I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner...Everything about this recipe was horrible down to the nasty gravy...will never make again
Made this for Easter, and fell in love. Great flavor & very easy to do. I brined the bird inside turkey bags. I think this is our Easter turkey from now on. Also in love the the Parmesan Sage turkey (we use it at Thanksgiving)
