Gobble, Gobble

Here’s what’ll be on my table this Thanksgiving holiday!  I usually just do the traditional turkey stuffed with onions, carrots, and herbs, but it’s time to switch things up a bit.  I knew I wanted to incorporate honey into the recipe, so I chose this one from Back to the Cutting Board.  Irresistibly juicy turkey coated with a honey Dijon glaze! Mmmm...
            Stay tuned for the rest of my Thanksgiving dinner menu and Thanksgiving leftover ideas! 

Honey Roasted Turkey

    ·         1 cup honey
    ·         1/2 cup dijon mustard
    ·         2 tsp. salt

    1.       Preheat oven to 325 degrees (F).
    2.       Rinse turkey, discard the giblets and then place in a roasting pan.
