Turkeys in July

Posted by


While people all over the country were firing up their grills and reaping the benefits of our most bountiful growing season, I was deep in thought about turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings. We decided early on that Thanksgiving in Everyday Food magazine was going to be simple and approachable without skimping on flavor. I knew immediately that I was going to make a salt and pepper turkey with a stuffing inspired by one my grandmother made that is flavored with little more than onion, celery and sage. The result was this golden beauty pictured above. With a generous slathering of salted butter between the skin and flesh, this turkey is sure to be juicy and delicious. Let me know what you think of it!

    The "Welcome Home" November issue is a treasure! I followed it as a guide to my family Thanksgiving dinner (plus the classic pumpkin pie recipe from marthastewart.com). The Salt and Pepper Turkey is superior to the directions on the turkey wrapper. Over the years with just my husband and me at the table, even our small family group of five seemed like a challenge. The schedule with make-ahead tips was just what I needed.
