Help for Thanksgiving

For all of you that are looking for a great Roasted Turkey Recipe. Here is a good one!

Here is a recipe I thought you would like for the holidays

1 whole Turkey

1 large lemon, cut into half
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Rub butter or oil over the skin of the Turkey until it is completely coated. 

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and any other seasonings you prefer.

Take a knife and your fingers and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;

Do NOT Puncture the skin  
 Slide  lemon  halves  under  the  skin  with  the  peel  side  up, one on
Each side.  This way the  juice from the lemon will release into the breasts.

Cover and bake for 2 hrs breast side down.   Remove cover , flip bird, and continue

To roast until juices run clear about 1 hr, basting every 15 minutes. If your breasts are browning to fast tent them with foil as to not burn them.

If you've followed these steps correctly, your turkey should  

Look like the one in the picture.

Bon Appetit!


Isn't it a beautiful Bird!

Seriously I will post more stuff including Pumpkin Ricotta Cheesecake and Homemade Orange Cranberry Sauce after Thanksgiving weekend as I have some friends to visit.

Best Wishes and Blessings on your families!
Happy Thanksgiving!
