Glazed Roast Turkey with Cranberry Stuffing


This turkey was incredible. I had hunted and hunted for a recipe to cook this past Christmas and found a wonderful one on from Betty Crocker. It took quite a bit of prep work but was worth it. There was so much stuffing but it all. got. eaten.

Ok, let me tell you the things which I learned first of all, then onto the recipe. Yes, you can overstuff a turkey. Haha. This one was a little overfull and next time I’ll bake more of the stuffing in a separate container.

I also need to figure out my fully gas oven a bit more – sometimes things get a little burned if they’re too close to the bottom of the oven.

    Looks delicious! And even more amazing that it was one of your own hand-raised turkeys. Not too many people here in New Zealand can say they’ve done this.

    Wow – that looks like one huge turkey!! How many lbs was it and how long did you have to cook it for?

    I’d love to visit New Zealand one day. Ever since watching films like Lord of the Rings (yes, yes cliche I know), it’s been on my bucket list. Kaukapakapa seems like a mouthful to say (how exactly do you pronounce it?)

    Thanks for your blog.. love reading about your life and seeing your photos.

    The stuffing is always the best part for me. Can you post the recipe? I didn’t see it in your post and I’m looking for ideas for Thanksgiving this year. I’m trying to be super organized since it’s our turn for all the family this year and I’m not reaaaally a cook.
