I came up with this idea as an alternative to stuffing the turkey.

It takes care of the issue of making sure the stuffed turkey is cooked enough and that it does not get over cooked.

In place of the stuffing in the bird, I put in salt, pepper, celery, onion and sometime a spring of thyme.

It may seem like a lot to some people, but it is truly worth it.

I actually have made these for other folks for Thanksgiving.
