Thanksgiving is here and I have a fabulous turkey recipe for those that want to take a bit of a deviation from the standard roast turkey recipe – a Mustard Maple Glazed Roast Turkey with Homemade Gravy. This turkey is packed with flavor and the leftovers the next day are even better. This is a repeat on my holiday menu – it’s that good.
Thanksgiving came up quick this year and I have a confession – I’m still finalizing my menu. I know, I know – late planning on my part but I know this turkey is making a repeat appearance this year along with my favorite loaded mashed potatoes, Stovetop Green Bean Casserole, my favorite Thanksgiving Stuffing, and a couple other sides. I’m using a fresh turkey this year so I’ll be fighting the crowds at the store early this morning to pick mine up and race home to get it chilled. I have had too many frozen turkey mishaps over the years so to quote Nancy Fuller, “Fresh Is Best”. I’m also taking the opportunity to stock up on turkey stock because this is the only time of year I am able to find it at my local stores….
