Tried the "Holland Turkey" recipe today for the first time as practice for thanksgiving. Took 10 minutes total prep time total. Wash the bird, sprinkle on Carolina Seasoning, and cook. Result is one of the best and most flavorful turkeys I've ever tried. Highly recommended!!


Give us some pointers. What temp. did you wind up at, how big was the turkey and how long did it take?

It was a 13 pound bird and I took it of at 168 degrees +/- in the breast. If I had it to do over again (and I do) I'll remove the bird sooner so that the white meat is even more moist. May also add some apple and celery and even a pear to the cavity!

Took about 2:20 minutes total cooking time


I meant 2 hours and twenty!


Cut a lemon in half, put in side of cavity, squeeze and leave. Un believable taste.


I have cooked turkeys at two different times and I stuff the neck and breast cavity's with oranges and apples. they are the best turkeys we have ever eaten.
the only thing added to it is the carolina seasoning.
this thanksgiving i am cooking two 13 pounders and using the same method.
In Michigan i have been allowing 20 minutes per lb because of the cold weather
