It was a success!! Dinner was ready on time, and the only thing that turned out iffy was the dressing, which was a bit on the soggy side.
I couldn’t decide which roasting recipe to follow, so I combined a few that I came across and the turkey turned out amazing! I rubbed it with butter, sea salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and chili powder. Then I stuffed it with chopped apple and diced onion. Poured half a quart of chicken broth into the roasting pan with most of a bottle of white wine. Covered it with a foil tent and roasted it at 375, basting it every 30-45 minutes. It was perfectly done in just over 5 hours.
Ugly, yet sooo amazingly delicious.
