New Turkey recipe

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

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.

Bon Appetit!

Tee hee sorry I'm full of it today!! Got the silly's!!

I roast chicken like this, and it's great. I always stuff my turkey, though, and I'm getting very hungry for some good turkey and dressing.

I got this e-mail from my brother yesterday and cracked up. Love it. I should try it and see if it really works. ;)
