This terrific recipe for Sunday Turkey was submitted by Susan Pollard of Jefferson, Louisiana.
1 (12-pound) Honeysuckle White Whole Turkey
1 green apple, quartered
6 cloves garlic, peeled and halved
6 lemons, halved
1 bottle of your favorite Italian dressing
Old Bay Seasoning, as needed
- Marinate turkey overnight in a plastic bag filled with the Italian dressing.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Place the turkey into a large baking pan and pour the marinade into the bottom of the pan. Lift the breast skin, being careful not to tear it, and place garlic cloves, apple, and one of the halved lemons into the cavity of the turkey. Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning all over turkey and attach the remaining halved lemons to the top of the turkey with toothpicks.
- Tent with foil and bake 20 minutes per pound. Remove the foil tent during the last half hour of baking to brown the turkey.
Makes 6 servings.
