Ingredients

  • One  10 to 15-pound turkey
  • 1 1/2 Pound  bacon
  • 1/2 Pound  butter
  •   Fresh herbs, such as sage, thyme, oregano, parsley, marjoram, and rosemary
  • carrots, roughly chopped
  • stalks celery, roughly chopped
  • onions, roughly chopped
  • leeks, roughly chopped
  • apples, sliced in half

This is the turkey. I’ve been perfecting this for many years now. I must say, it is a showstopper, and delicious to boot, because I treat it well. I send my turkey to a bacon spa. It gets a salt scrub, a bacon butter deep tissue massage, a hand-woven bacon spa robe, some time in the sauna and a little tanning to finish it off.
