Turkey Marinade & Stuffing For Your Thanksgiving Table
I’ve tried so many ways over the years to prepare turkey so it will have lots of flavor and not turn out dry. I’ve wrapped them in cheese clothes, soaked them in brine, deep fried, put butter over the skin, under the skin, cooked it stuffed, unstuffed, none of that works like this simple marinade. Everyone who has tried it swears that by using this marinade they end up with the most tender and juicy turkey ever. Using fresh herbs are the secret to the most flavorful gravy.
I introduced this recipe on a local talk show I was hosting in Los Angeles called, “A.M. Los Angeles” over 25 years ago and to this day I have strangers stop me on the streets and in grocery stores to tell me how much the love it! Now I have new generation of converts! Preparing the turkey with this marinade will also yield plenty of gravy that you will want to put on everything!
