Oh man, what a beauty! The pan comes with a nonstick roasting rack and some tongs/handles. Even though I wasn't on turkey duty, I needed to test out the pan (and make some leftovers!!). I chose a turkey breast for my first go at roasting a bird and finally decided on a recipe for Sage Butter-Roasted Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy.
I pretty much followed the recipe, just cutting back on some of the amounts as I wasn't cooking a turkey the size called for. Instead of brining, you actually rub a mixture of salt and dried sage the night before cooking. My only trouble here was that I had rinsed and dried my turkey... so the kosher salt didn't stick. Unfortunately I forgot about this fact when I went to make the gravy (where all the salt fell off the turkey), so my gravy was waaay too salty. It's ok though, I don't like gravy :) Sorry mom and dad!
The turkey, however, turned out fantastic. Moist and absolutely delicious, I'd totally use this recipe again! The roasting pan was also a rockstar, as gravy was easily made in the pan after cooking the turkey and cleanup was a breeze! Winner, winner,
Have you ever roasted a turkey or chicken? Do you have a go-to recipe? Thoughts on brining? Do share!
