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.

Bon Appetit!

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself......

Happy Hump Day!!

Ciao Bellas~

  11. Too bad we're doing a Turducken this year - that would be just PERFECT! I sure wasn't expecting that - I was busy thinking, 'Lemon on turkey?" When I saw that I almost spewed my coffee all over my computer keyboard and screen! Thanks for the belly laugh!

  13. I often use lemon slices for chicken. I must admit it's not at all the same funny result.

  14. OOOOOoohhhhh I do to NC. Love lemon on chicken. I do "miracle chicken" from Princess House and it's sooooo easy and a favorite here. I Wonder what Hunk and the Rugrats would think if I served it with the lemons placed like that the next time. I should do it and see if they notice....

    Ok, you are right, how could they not notice... LOL....hmmmm

  15. Greatest picture I've ever seen. I think my b-friend wouldnt be so hesitant to attend Thanksgiving (family events in general really) if the turkey looked like this every year!! hahahaha Thanks for the giggle.

  17. Okay...I'm pretty sure my hubby would leave me for that turkey. =)
