Flavorful Holiday Turkey (SCD, GFCF)
Here's my holiday turkey secret. It hasn't failed me yet. Herbes de Provence is an herb blend from the south of France. It is wonderful on poultry and is a mix of marjoram, rosemary, sage, savory, thyme, lavender, basil, parsley and sometimes fennel, chervil and garlic. If you can't find Herbes de Provence, than any combination of three or more of those herbs would work nicely. The mayo holds the herbs on the turkey and keeps it moist.
One turkey, thawed, cleaned and ready to roast
1 or 2 Oranges, each cut into about 6 wedges
1 Onion, cut into about 6 wedges
A couple stalks of Celery, diced into big pieces, or even BETTER use the Celery Leaves
Herbes de Provence
1/3 to 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
Place turkey in roasting pan. Stuff cavity with orange and onion wedges, and celery. Sprinkle some herbs inside. With a spatula, lightly spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on entire turkey. Sprinkle with herbs. Roast according to directions on package.
