First of, Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians home and abroad! Although this year is my fifth Thanksgiving away from home and I am very thankful that I still had a proper poultry feast with my second family this weekend. Actually, three years ago I introduced the Thanksgiving dinner to my boyfriend’s family and they loved it so much it is properly a thing now. So every October, we have an event called kalkoen (which is Dutch for turkey), not Thanksgiving, just turkey… haha.
Anyway, in The Netherlands usually you would only come across turkey in the sandwich meat section in the supermarket, and if you want a proper full turkey for roasting you have to pre-order it at the special poultry shop. Before cooking for my in-laws I’ve never roasted a turkey before, so you can imagine the pressure… but I followed the can-do attitude and I’m definitely thankful that I have found a
super easy, manageable recipe that comes with smashing results 🙂 !!!
I found this recipe on the internet a few years back and again I am super thankful that I have scribbled it down (because it doesn’t come up in my google results anymore even with the search terms from the recipe?!). What I love about this recipe is that it has
no complicated steps and the turkey really does not dry out.
