I decided this year to bake my turkey early. It was a fresh turkey and I was just a little worried about having it around for very long, so I "baked" it in the roaster, on my counter. My house smells AMAZING!
It looks a little "anemic" in the photo, but it is actually a beautiful golden brown. I placed it in a bowl sitting in its own chicken broth. Whew hoo! One less thing to take care of on Thursday!
