Brined, herb-roasted Thanksgiving turkey for the holiday. I was never thrilled about turkey at Thanksgiving. One year, I was in charge of the bird and bound and determined I would make it really well. After trying this recipe I feel in love with Thanksgiving turkey and will never do it any other way. It was so moist, everyone loved it. I wish I had some now!

Simfaith , 2 years agoNov 2011-Turkey was a huge hit! So juicy and melted in your mouth. Directions were a tad confusing, but easy enough to work around. We will definitely be making this next year. Nov 2012--Looking forward to making this turkey this year. Kids have been talking about it now for a month! Still the best turkey I've ever had!

Gradys , 2 years agoOne word: Excellent, but two suggestions (to add to your recipe) 1). Serving instruction - the veggies stuffed in the bird are awesome - problem was we didn't take these out until after eating 2) next day options - made an incredible soup, but would love to hear other options
Hazehkp , 2 years agoI used this recipe to try my 1st turkey this year. Complete success. I did a 20 pound turkey n everyone loved it. Very tasty n juicy!
Madelineeli , 2 years agoWell I started the turkey 24 hour soaked in seasoning added some Spanish style to the prep now we will see the drama continues. Stay tune with my second report. Oh! I forgot to mention this is my 1st tturkey
Msnono , 2 years agoI never really cared for eating turkey because the white meat always seemed dry. So I never roast a turkey in my entire life for the fear of how it would turn out. Well I never have to fear again. I took a chance and prepared this turkey recipe for a large celebration of about one hundred people and the turkey turned out AWESOME! I was the rave of the party. I soaked them for 8 hours and thought I might have over cooked them but it did not seem to matter. Everyone was amazed of how tender and tasty the meat tasted. I saw people wrapping and taking home the scraps of turkey that was left. I'm so proud of myself. No one knew who baked those turkeys ( I made two large turkeys) and I listened to the reactions as I watched everyone ate. I can't wait to make my turkeys for the holiday... I now know it's going to be a hit.

ChefJamie , 2 years agoI made my first turkey for Thanksgiving last year using the brine from this recipe. The turkey was a success! Everyone loved it; we literally at ALL the turkey. There was only thanksgiving sides for people to take home as leftovers. No turkey sandwiches to make for the days to come.
Surlatoile , 2 years agoThat was my first try with turkey, and a success i think, even my 3 years old did like it. Thanks! :-)
