A family tradtiion since 2005! In my opinion, there is no other way to make a turkey or dressing. It is labor intensive with a very long list of ingredients but well worth the effort. If you allow your husband to take on this task, it's not labor intensive at all. Just ask me!Per Morton himself, "It will appear as though the turkey is blackened, but don't let that scare you. Simply peel away the "crust/skin" that appears to be overdone." This is INCREDIBLE and very moist. ENJOY! Baking times will vary depending on the weight of the bird.1/2013 During a discussion in the Q&A thread it was brought to my attention that perhaps 2 egg yolks was not correct. I did some googling and found that recipes can vary using anywhere from 2-12 egg yolks. See this thread if you have questions: I have been using 2 egg yolks for years and it works well.
