Want to make the perfect turkey for your Hunk this Thanksgiving?
This year our Wedding Anniversary lands on Thanksgiving day.
I've been looking for a "special" turkey recipe to make for my Hunk this year, to celebrate. Instead of the way I cook it year after year after year.
You know, spice it up a bit for our "special occasion". I'm just thoughtful like that... wink... wink
I'm so excited!! I just received this Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe from my friend Kristin this morning and it's perfect!!!
Just in case you were looking for an extra special turkey this Thanksgiving I just had to share.
It is sure to be a hit at any Thanksgiving Table.
- 1 whole turkey
- 1 large lemon, cut into halves
- 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 gently separate the skin from the breast meat; 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 30-45 minutes.
Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes.
If you've followed these steps correctly, your turkey should look like the one in the picture below.
Happy Hump Day!!
