Erin Chase's Cider Glazed Turkey
Try This Inexpensive Thanksgiving Turkey
Thanksgiving doesn't have to be expensive. Erin Chase offers this great turkey recipe that won't break the bank this season.
Preheat oven to 325. Rinse and then place the turkey into a roasting pan and pat dry. Season the inside of the turkey with salt and pepper, then add the apple chunks, onion pieces, halved lemon and rosemary. Insert meat thermometer into the fleshiest part of the thigh, but not touching the bone.
Roast in the preheated oven for 1 ½ hours.
Meanwhile prepare the glaze by heating the cider and sugar in a small saucepan. Boil for about 7 to 10 minutes, or until the glaze reduces by half, to about ½ cup. Stir frequently. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter, until glaze thickens slightly.
After roasting for 1 ½ hours, brush the glaze all over the turkey. Return turkey to the oven and continue roasting for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the meat thermometer reads 165 to 170. Remove turkey from the oven, transfer to carving board or serving platter and let sit for 30 minutes before carving.
Serve Cider Glazed Turkey.
