I remember making this recipe when it came out on the November 1998 issue of Cooking Light and it was a huge success. I decided to change 2 years ago and regretted it. Needless to say I came back to it last year and I will always make it this way from now on. This year I had guests from England and it was their very first Thanksgiving ever. Everyone commented on how tasty and moist the turkey was. The gravy was a big hit too. I will never stray again!
I made this turkey for 5 of the past 9 Thanksgiving, since this recipe was printed, and I regret it when I don't make it. It's so tasty!!!
Sorry, but I really did not like the syrupy sweet gravy with turkey! We tried this as well as the gravy mix that came with the turkey and the standard gravy was much much better.
Used this for my first Thanksgiving with in-laws, etc in 1998 and still using it today. Tried a few others, but this is the best and the gravy is awesome!
this is my standard for cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving now. Perfect combination of ingredients without any changes - rave reviews!
