Sage-Rubbed Roast Turkey with Lemon-Bay Gravy

November/December 2012

Your rating: None Average: 4.7 (7 votes)

This roast turkey recipe is flavored with sage and served with gravy made extra-tasty with the lemony pan drippings from the turkey and bay leaves in the giblet stock. The salt rub in this recipe acts as a “dry brine,” plumping and seasoning the meat for moist, juicy, flavorful turkey.

Even my niece ate it!

I made this last year after reading through the recipe and after years of dried out turkey this was the best. My picky niece that does not like turkey (because "It's dry") ate it. She ate more than one serving to boot! I doubt I will ever fix one any other way again. The stock comes out great, the gravy is wonderful.

Moist, tasty

Perfect in every way

We had given up on trying to roast turkey when my son suggested cooking it the way I cook roast chicken: high heat. I looked for a recipe online and found plenty, but when my Eating Well issue came I dove into it on a mission to find a better recipe. And I did. I cut out the recipe and put it into a plastic sleeve. After using it I put into the looseleaf notebook that holds all the best recipes we've ever found. I will never cook a turkey any other way.

most delicious, amazingly moist

Best turkey I've ever made

The family says it is the best turkey I've ever made, I like the fact that it taste fresh and does not have the stuffing taste. I've never had luck with a turkey being moist without stuffing until now. This is a keeper! Thanks

Moist, herbs made it very tasty
