What’s on the menu? – Herbed Turkey

Your family will “gobble up” this amazing recipe for your holiday dinner.  The turkey ends up with a wonderful flavor and is so moist.  The turkey won’t be the only one “stuffed” on Thanksgiving Day!

1 whole turkey (any weight)

2-3 cloves garlic  pressed/minced

2 whole bay leaves

3 cloves garlic – crushed lightly

1/4 lb. butter

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. marjoram

1 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper

1 tsp.  thyme

1 tsp. oregano leaves

1 tsp. basil

1 tsp. sage

Rinse the cavity of the thawed turkey in cold water.  Dry inside and out with paper towels.   Rub the pressed garlic over the outside of the bird.  Place the bay leaves and crushed garlic in the cavity (you may also salt the cavity as well.)  In a small saucepan, heat all of the remaining ingredients until the butter has melted.  Place turkey in an oven bag and put into a roasting pan.  Brush or daub the sauce over the entire bird.  Cook turkey according to directions on the oven bag.  Enjoy!
