If you want a turkey for the holidays, or anytime for that matter that looks like this, then try this recipe for the baste! Even better than the way it looks, the taste is phenomenal!
My wife found this recipe on the Betty Crocker site, and decided to give it a try for the turkey this past Thanksgiving. This baste gave the turkey such a delicious flavor, I had to share it with all of you.
It’s quick and easy to make, and it soaks into the turkey nicely so that you can clearly taste it in every slice!
Here’s what it looks like in the pan. Now slide on back up to the top picture to take one more look at what it produces when it’s finished. Mmmmmm mmmm!
