Happy Thanksgiving! Ah, Thanksgiving! A time for giving thanks and spending quality time with loved ones. You know what I love? Turkey! Oh, and don’t forget Bacon! Moist, succulent, melt in your mouth Turkey along with maple flavored Bacon. Know what I don’t love… a dried out turkey. I also love my mother-in-law (who is probably reading this. Sorry in advance mom :* ), but she can’t cook a turkey! Well, she can now, with this recipe!
After many Thanksgiving dinners at my in-laws, I decided to take a big step. I decided to take over Thanksgiving dinner and that meant cooking the turkey. I’m not going to lie, I was freaking out. Everyone loved mom’s turkey, so there were big expectations to be met. I needed to make sure that this turkey would win everyone over with one flavourful bite.
After some extensive research (thanks google!), I came up with this winner. The secret to a moist turkey is to keep the juices locked in. Adding some delicious grass-fed butter, infused with fresh sage, then smothered over the turkey breast ensures that the meatiest part of the bird doesn’t dry out. Adding layers of bacon on top of that, ensures the heat is trapped in to keep that area moist and tender. Maple syrup just enhances all the flavours and makes that Bacon oh so desirable. We literally never add enough. No seriously, we fight over that last piece of Bacon every, single, time.
