Gluten-Free Holiday Recipes: Perfect Roasted Turkey

November 30, 2009

This year we hosted our first Thanksgiving. For hosting my first holiday dinner, I was pretty calm except for the anxiety I had over the turkey. The night before I felt like I was going to have a heart attack because I was so worried on how it would turn out!  I had never made a brine before and was worried the turkey would have no flavoring. I know how to cook, I’m not sure why I was panicking so much.

The Food Network always airs many holiday cooking shows in November and December so I made sure to Tivo some of my favorites. Alton Brown, the host of Good Eats hosted a show on how to brine a turkey using this recipe: Good Eats Roast Turkey. I used his recipe along with my own tweaks and the turkey turned out amazing. It was moist and flavorful. My family usually cooks a turkey on Christmas day, so for you guys out there that do the same– I highly recommend this brine recipe. It is so easy!

Instructions for original recipe at Food Network.

ENJOY!
