Christmas Turkey Recipes
You can expect great company and conversation over your Christmas dinner when you make one of these mouth-watering, juicy turkeys. Talk about a main course that'll blow everyone away!
Buttermilk-Marinated Turkey with Onion Gravy
For a quick and inexpensive way to give your bird golden-brown skin and that moist taste, bathe your bird in buttermilk and hot sauce. It'll give it the succulent taste without pricy ingredients like butter, wine or fresh herbs.
Cherry-Chipotle Turkey Breast
Add a little kick to the traditional turkey with this cherry-chipotle mix. Cook a group of turkey breasts instead of the whole bird for a faster last-minute entrée.
Fresh Herb Grilled Turkey
Short on time? Have this flavorful dinner ready in an hour-and-a-half. Mix and match the herbs to your liking.
Roasted Turkey with Thyme Gravy
For a crispier bird, flip it over halfway through the roasting process. This allows both sides of the turkey to bronze and cook.
If you're feeling adventurous, venture out into the cold and fire up that grill. Use a brined turkey for this recipe -- the extra moisture makes the longer cook time easier on the bird.
Tandoori-Spiced Turkey with Cracked Pepper Gravy
This Indian-inspired dish is rubbed with spices and comes with a kick. Pull this recipe out if you're looking for a traditional taste with a daring twist.
Brined Dijon Turkey with Pan Gravy
Here's a great make-ahead bird. Carve the turkey, and plate with the gravy up to two days before for the moistest meat ever! Before sitting down to eat, just reheat.
If you're craving a traditional turkey dinner, look no more. Every bite of this buttery bird will melt in your mouth.
Try this recipe for a large, informal group. Then, prepare it with your favorite spice rub for a tasty finish.
Kiss-of-Lemon Roast Turkey
For the ultimate finish on a basic bird, try adding lemon to the mix. Tip: For a more flavorful stock, include the turkey wings.
Maple-Glazed Roast Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy
For a seriously sweet entrée, add this turkey to the menu. The maple and apple flavors meld together perfectly.
Don't let the name confuse you -- there won't be a crispy coating on this bird. Deep-frying the turkey helps lock in the moisture without the heavy taste.
Bourbon-Glazed Barbeque Turkey
For a sweet twist on dinner, try this turkey. The bourbon-honey glazed outside mixes with a moist center for a crowd-pleasing finish.
