I've adopted this recipe through Martha Stewart and made it my own. Everyone in the family is at my house on 'turkey' holidays because of this recipe. Even if you've never cooked a turkey before, this will amaze! Of course a recipe is only a guideline so feel free to add or subtract ingredients due to personal taste. I'll add the amazing stuffing recipe that goes with this before American Thanksgiving..or Christmas (depends on my available time). For those that don't cook a lot of turkey (and I do it on a weeknight for something to do), always check your turkey size and cook accordingly, whether stuffed or not. This my friends is a crowd pleaser. Be careful to only serve it to those you want to have over for dinner when a turkey is involved! Use any wine that you would drink is the best advice I can give...makes all the difference in the world. It may seem like a lot of work but it inst--I've done this on a Tuesday just for something to do. It's the best comfort food there is. I don't know the size of the cheesecloth packages so that's an estimate. You can usually get the cheesecloth and the packaged 'poultry blend herbs' at your local grocery. If you cant, email me and I'll give you the herbs you need. ENJOY! Try it this holiday season and tell me it's not the best!
